With all the lights shining down through the domes and flooding through the windows, the Versailles was a glittering world of golden delights. As I walked deeper into the decadent maze of art work and gilded trimmings, it seemed as though I had been transported to a different world altogether. Luxurious hotels seen today seem plain and frugal in comparison. Now, consider the hallway in your home. I don’t know about yours, but mine pretty much has a plain white ceiling with plain white coving to go with it. It’s flat and the only thing attached to it is a fluorescent light. Sound familiar? Now take a look at this:
I can’t even begin to put into words what I felt when I saw this ceiling. In fact, I have spent days in front of this post at loss of words. I believe I shall just let the photos speak for themselves and come back and edit it later if I find my wits again.
If you missed the first part of my Versailles posts, you’ll find it here. Now tell me, what do you find to be the most magnificent part of the Versailles?
