Weekend Reflections: escalier royal

At the palace: the staircase linking the princesses' apartments to the king's private rooms and a candelabra are reflected in a mirror for Weekend Reflections.

Au château, l'escalier qui relie les appartements de mesdames (les filles de Louis XV) aux petits appartements du roi et un candélabre sont reflétés dans un miroir pour les Reflets du Weekend.

This looks like it's right out of a romance novel. Hard to believe people lived like this in reality.
