Chez Madame Adélaïde

Isn't this charming? It is princess Adélaïde's small cabinet at the palace. As you can see, VDP was delighted by the chairs!

Ce n'est pas charmant ? C'est le petit cabinet de Madame Adélaïde, fille de Louis XV dans les appartements de mesdames au château. Comme vous pouvez le constater, VDP a été enchantée par les fauteuils !

Pretty fancy for a mere princess! :)

A magnificent room, though. And all that gold! The chairs you can have.

I'm enchanted by those incredible textiles! Too pretty to sit on almost, but what a treat. The entire room is very charming.

Beautiful, lavish room indeed, and enchanting it is!! Although I have to admit that it's a little too fancy for this old broad!! Love your captures though, as always!!

A little too fancy for my taste but it is pretty.

On the two or three occasions I've walked through the palace - and some other places in Europe of similar style - I thought that living there would be suffocating. But it's a matter of place, time and space. Adelaide would be horrified by a Mies building, and think of a visit to the Pompidou!

It's just hard to imagine that people could actually use these works of art as furniture. Nice shots.

Amazing fabric, it must be such a delicate process.

I wonder why the round mirrors are so high?

Hi Ciel! Re your question on Florida: That is a nice sidewalk. I've walked on it if that's what you mean when you ask if I've "tried it"?

Perhaps you were talking about the restaurant. Nope, haven't tried it. But I think that's a good idea. :)

VP said...

Amazing, but I will be scared to break them...

If one was wealthy and could live like the King---it would be wonderful. But us poor peasants---I am sick of straw. LOL MB
