VDP hors les murs : le salon Oberkampf

Oberkampf's room Toile de Jouy
We are still at Toile de Jouy museum just outside of Versailles. This is Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf's drawing-room, that has been reconstituted after a contemporary drawing. The Toile de Jouy on the walls is magnificent (though naturally not everyone would want to live in a flowered interior!)

A little Fru Fru for me.

Des toiles qui traversent le temps sans vraiment se démoder. On les retrouve aujourd’hui pas mal en papiers peints. Par contre sur les murs, pas facile a nettoyer… Du charme indéniable.

Beautifully done for its period.

If I had that on my walls I'd need a respirator.

Yeah, this is not exactly a room for those manly-men.

I don't think I could live with that but it is beautiful in its own way

It's very 1940's!

I do like it very much Ciel.. on these walls, it could be a little trying day after day :)
BTW j'adore the carpet, I could definitely live each day with that!

Very interesting. I do like flora but not on the walls. Is that a piano or an harpsichord?

And why do they call it a "drawing" room when I don't see anyone drawing anything?

Just wondering...

What a beautiful space!

VP said...

Quite elegant and surely dated, but is a pleasure to see these rooms!

@ Sharon: strangely enough, it does a bit but it's a century plus older than that!

I don't care for wallpaper, but it looks good in certain places - like here!

Our Rhubarb is up about a foot now. It is also in a raised bed bob did last fall. Strawberries on the southside of the house where we just planted the Sweet Peas. Made the raised bed there last Spring and had Strawberries until late fall. Wonderful!

Yes, a bit flowery for my tastes, but isn't that why we have museum's? That's a pretty interesting marble mantle with the cool columns.

A bit too flowery for my tastes but I have to admit it looks great in this museum!
