I can’t believe that this time last year I was in the City of Lights! Oh how I wish I was there right now...
Crystal chandeliers, cornice décor, stucco caryatids, and gold everywhere… I wish there was furniture to sit on here. Then again, if that was the case, visitors would be stuck in these rooms for hours just trying to take all the details in. ♚ Instead, I just walked slowly, head turning every which way almost to the point of getting dizzy. I kept getting so caught up in the gold overlay blinding me at every turn that I feel like I might’ve missed taking a closer look at paintings, engravings, mirrors, furniture, and so much more. ♚ Regardless, these rooms are an amazing sight and a great example of the opulence of royal life in France pre-revolution. Additionally, these rooms are the perfect inspiration for anyone looking to jazz up their ceilings 😉. • • • • • #chandelier #crystals #paintings #goldroom #lavish #redvelvet

Imagine—flowing champagne, finely dressed aristocrats talking and dancing, pleasant music playing in the background, and elegantly prepared hors d'oeuvres served at every turn. ⚜️ What you see here is called “Louis XIV style” ⚜️ After a few hours touring The Louvre, you’ll reach Napoleon’s Apartments (located in The Richelieu Wing). Gold never complemented red velvet better than in these rooms--this room is The Grand Salon. Typically, paintings, tapestries, or sculptures are the focal points of a room in this museum, but in this grandiose suite, every inch gushes with majestic elegance. It's clear that this ostentatious room played host to a number of Paris's most distinguished guests, including various political figures and members of the aristocracy. • • • #Baroque #LouisXIV #redvelvet
Our first day in Paris was amazing, we walked for miles till our feet wanted to give out because there is just so much worth seeing!

What do you think about this ? Follow @travelsekai #paris #france The Île de la Cité (Island of the City, in Portuguese) is one of two natural islands that are on the Seine in Paris. It is the center of the French capital. Around the year 200 BC, the Gallic tribe of the Parisians settled on the island to found the city of Lutécia. The city grew, prospered, became the capital of the kingdom and came to be called Paris. On a tour of the Île de la Cité you can admire some of the main attractions of France at one time: Notre Dame, the Conciergerie, the Courthouse and the Sainte Chapelle. At the Île de la Cité, do not forget to visit the Hotel Dieu, the beautiful gardens of Notre Dame and, at the opposite end, the Square du Vert-Galant, true Oasis on the Island. It is also worth to visit the Dauphine Square, built for the future King Louis XIII (dauphin was the name given to the candidates boys to king). Finally, be sure to enjoy the view of the Seine from the famous Pont Neuf, which is the oldest bridge in Paris, despite the name "New Bridge".
High above on the ceiling of the Galerie D’Apollon is this piece called Le Soir ou Morphée (The Night or Morpheus) by Charles Le Brun (1663). Ω In Greek mythology, Morpheus is the god of dreams, deliverer of messages from the gods to the mortal world by way of dreams. As his name suggests, Morpheus used transfiguration to carry out his duties, as well as his wings which were given to him by his uncle Thanatos, the face of death (known in other cultures as the Grim Reaper). Σ On a slight tangent--the name Thanatos sounds a lot like Thanos, from Marvel's Avengers. Thanatos, in Greek mythology, was a personification of death, specifically non-violent death. If you've seen Avengers: Infinity War, you can see why Thanos' name is so befitting of his character. . . . . . #morpheus #matrix #mythology #thanos #thanotos #greekmythology
Flower of carnage - Parfois quand une page ne se tourne pas, on la déchire. J’en ai parcouru du chemin en 2 ans. Je vis ma plus belle vie malgré tout, j’aurais grandi de cette expérience et aujourd’hui bon sang comme je me sens mieux. 🌸 - #visitparis #ig_worldclub #france_vacations #jaimelafrance #parisienneliving #awesomeearth #super_france #sport #paris #france #topparisphoto #topfrancephoto #igersparis #igersfrance #ig_france #ig_europe #world_great #loves_europe #ig_sharepoint #exploretocreate #gf_france #lebonbon #livetravelchannel #world_instateam #parisjetaime #iloveparis #pariscityvision #city_explore #wonderful_places #MyBeautifulParis
The decorations might have since come down, but I hope you are all still carrying the merry spirit of Christmas with you and treating every day like it is as special as Christmas because after all each day of your life only comes along once✨
Un petit aperçu du cirque de Cilaos en noir et blanc qui met en valeur ces roches qui laissent apparaître la mer au loin.. @lumix_france j'ai fait le choix de cette photo car le temps s'est arrêté pour moi quand j'admirai cette vue exceptionnelle. Le fait qu'elle soit en noir et blanc me rend nostalgique de ce moment mais j'ai le sentiment qu'elle montre à quel point nous sommes déconnectés du temps en contemplant l'horizon. #lumix #lumixfrance #concours #lumixblackandwhite #iledelareunion #cirque #cirquecilaos #voyage #decouverte #decouvertedumonde #voyageursdumonde #travelcapture #topfrancephoto #topeuropephoto #instagood #instafun #instagram #instafun #instaphoto #capture #natuee #montagne #ocean #eternelvoyageur #eternelvoyage
