Bonjour my fashionistas! My time in Paris is closely coming to and end with less than 2 weeks left. Paris has been expensive, but there are so many historical sites to see that are just breathtaking. We finally explored the Palace of Versailles, which is a royal château in Versailles in the Île-de-France region of France. This was really one of the most exquisite places I have ever seen.
The palace was built in the late 17th century as a home for France’s king at the time, Louis XIV. It took about 3,000 workers to build over 700 rooms, 60 staircases and over 1,200 fireplaces. To think that one king built this to show his power and royalty is really amazing, and it was an influence to many other royal palaces later in history. His bedroom is located in the center of the building facing out to the city, which was concentrated around it since he was the absolute ruler. From the multiple gardens surrounding the palace to each and every bedroom and room, nothing was left created without extensive and delicate detail. I think this is a great place for anyone looking for a source of inspiration for any project or design they are working on, or for just a remarkable afternoon that can end with Laduree macaroons since they have their own store!
Pictures really don’t do it justice, but here are some from my day!
