Photos 1, 2, and 3 are the King's Bedroom. The gold balustrade at the foot of the bed was a barrier, and we were told that no servants were to cross it while the King was in his chamber.




Four: another detail in the Hall of Mirrors. Posted by Picasa

Michele sent me. The bed -- the actual mattress -- seems so tiny. Judged by the overly-ornate monstrosities they sell these days, it's less over-whelming than I'd expect. But beautiful nonetheless.

We went to Paris with the girls two years ago and visited Versailles with friends. These photos brought back all the great memories.
