My friend Henry (who's apartment I blogged about in March HERE) just got back from a trip to Italy and France. He sent me these photos of woodwork details from Versailles.I love these elegant blue-gray and white painted panels. The workmanship is exquisite!! However, as much as I like these elegant versions above-these polychrome panels below are TO DIE FOR. How crazy beautiful are these?
Just thought I'd share - thanks for the photos, Henry! Oh, did I mention he also went to Villa Rotunda that I blogged about last month?? I'm green with envy!
