Versailles and Rundāle

Wednesday, 7 October 2009

Hello Wednesday! It's time for the weekly window shopping on Etsy! On one hand this has turned into French themed week with Paris inspired moodboard on Monday and Versailles as inspiration for the wonderful creations I feature today. On the other hand Versailles gives me a chance to tell about Rundāle palace in Latvia. It was build as residence of the duke of Courland in 18th century and has magnificent baroque and rococo interiors. Rundāle is very much like small scale Versailles and visiting the lavish residence of French kings near Paris taught me to appreciate it's beauty even more. Rundāle palace is a must-see place especially in summer when roses in its gardens are in full bloom.

And now to Versailles inspired creations on Etsy.
