PALACE OF VERSAILLES

PALACE OF VERSAILLES

First of all, I can't even imagine living in a place - palace - such as Versailles. I'd be lost majority of the time i'm sure... The history, architecture, and grandiose are unlike anywhere else. This was something that I had yet to do during a trip to France, so I was so excited to finally make it out to Versailles. I won't go into all of the history, but we did take a guided tour and it was so worth it. It could be because of all of the art history i've taken and need for information, but I always want know what i'm looking at! I need context and reason... so I always go on tours if I can afford it. I never regret it! 

I'm a sucker for art, history, and fashion during French/English 17th - 18th century so this was heaven to me! The color palettes, pattern, and all of gold are insane. It really is a giant time capsule. You can see in the interior spaces how what specific trends in architecture and decor were "in" versus "out" as you walk through the palace.
