La boîte à costumes

This lovely, very Versaillais-style mural is fairly recent, though not new! It is, of course, a trompe-l’œil and is located in two gates street, which you had seen lit up for Christmas last year here. All Monday Murals are this way!

Ce charmant trompe-l’œil, relativement récent mais pas nouveau pour autant, est situé rue des deux portes que VDP vous montrait ici illuminée pour Noël l'an dernier. Toutes les fresques du lundi sont par là.

Very nice painted and indeed much more interesting to look at then a blind facade.

These murals really are so nice. I am almost fooled every time you show one. ;-)

I really lo==like trompe-l’œil!

At first I thought it was a mannequin and a window display. It is the latter, of course. I don't think I would have liked those clothes.

It's a nice one. I'm sitting here wondering what it would be like to wear something like that. Not very comfortable I'm guessing.

You know I always love a trompe-l’œil...

It has quite a three dimensional feel to it.

Good thing I opened your blog. I thought it was a mannequin, for sure! P.S. Did you miss my post about Colville Street Patisserie a few days ago? I thought specifically of you when I posted it.

That is a wonderful trompe-l'oeil. From the first photo I was sure this was a dress on a mannequin, your second photo gives it all away.

Très charmant. Versailles has absolutely the most sophisticated looking murals. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
