Versailles Palace What Inspires You?

French style is always so inspirational isn’t it? With the Coronavirus set to limit flying my family is dreaming of escapes to Europe. However via car or boat or train rather than long haul!

Anyway it got me thinking about my school days as I  regularly travelled to France each year for family holidays. I started learning French at an after school club in Winchester where I lived.  When I was just 9 had the opportunity to visit the Palace of Versailles in Versailles near Paris on a French Exchange. This beautiful building really inspired me to want to create luxury interiors. It made such a huge impression on me.

Age just 15 I took work experience in a soft furnishings store and they offered me a Saturday job tidying up the wallpaper and fabric books.  I helped make up curtains and blinds (mostly Austrian back then!) in the workroom. 

With a passion for textiles I love putting together schemes with lots of textures and patterns to give a luxurious feel to a room.  I believe this is one of the easiest changes to make to a room to add glamour and drama and a feeling of quality.  By using carefully selected new window treatments, dressing the bed and refreshing upholstery you can really transform a room even with existing furniture in some cases.

If you want to inject some glamour to your scheme then take a queue from Versailles with it’s rich indulgent decorations.

Try this  St Antoine wallpaper from Farrow and Ball to evoke French style:

I’d love to hear what inspires you to create a beautiful room, maybe it’s a piece of art or gift that someone special gave you?

So tell me what inspires you? Please go ahead and leave me a comment below.
