I love Versailles. Whenever we go to Paris, we always make sure to stay a couple nights in Versailles. I can’t resist the gardens and parks outside of the chateau. We love to stay in The Trianon Palace and always reserve a park view room. It is incredibly pastoral with animals peacefully grazing in the field below. bjbj
This past trip, the weather did not quite cooperate. We had many rainy days (and went through 4 umbrellas). Rain could not keep us from doing everything we wanted to do, but walking under an umbrella for hours at a time gives you a different perspective. What stood out to me the most were doors, shutters, walls and of course everything in beautiful full bloom.
I love this color of blue. It’s a gorgeous muted turquoise, very close to Farrow and Ball’s Blue Ground.
Although yellow is not my favorite color, I love this creamy, buttered shade. Very much like Benjamin Moore’s Soleil.
Many walls are this sort of peach-yellow-cream shade that I would use Farrow and Ball’s Pink Ground, Farrow’s Cream and Dorset Cream in a layered effect to achieve this. This blue door is a very popular color, so rich. It is close to Farrow and Ball’s Drawing Room Blue.
In love with color, contrast and simple beauty, as always.
