Paris Design Detail Inspiration!

I wanted to share with you the photos of my first trip to France….It was truly amazing and I must say that while Paris felt like a home away from home that Versailles was a jaw dropping inspiration. These pics are a look at design details that were created over 300 years ago! It still blows my mind at how sophisticated, intricate, and opulent it was so many years ago.

Les Puces. Beauty can be found everywhere in France. For Instance, look at the flooring here. These were simply cut pieces of wood inlaid in the floor but it looks so perfectly imperfect!
