Bon week~end! 

Hello Lovlies, I hope you are all having a most beautiful 

weekend. I was just catching up on some reading and I ran

 across an article about the new Benoît Jacquot film about
 Marie Antoinette.

 Based on the best-selling novel by Chantal Thomas,  Farewell
My Queen stars Léa Seydoux {Midnight in Paris} as one of

 Marie’s ladies-in-waiting and Diane Kruger as Marie

 Antoinette {Diane, by the way, is German, was born on July

 15th and her mother's name is Maria-Theresa}

{Photo Daily Briefing}

The story begins just in the days before the Revolution. To be

 exact the first four days of the French Revolution in July 1789.

 It is told from her servants perspective and seems to be a big

 departure from Sofia's modernized {but glorious} version.

 While some scenes explore Marie Antoinette's rumored affair

 with Gabrielle De Polignac, the movie is lavish and full of eye


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Home Sweet Home

Greetings! If you have been reading Paris Atelier you will know that I dream/ache to buy our own little slice of French property. I came very close this last year to making that dream a reality, but it did not happen {yet}. I have not given up the dream. When my husband and I are retired and our son has grown up I vow to be  living the dream in France! So today as I was looking at apartments in Paris, as I do every morning with tea. I just happened upon this little gem in Versailles. It could be my own personal Petite Trianon. This is not in our price range but a girl can dream. It took my breath away! Enjoy! 

This amazing mid nineteenth century home directly overlooks the Parc of Versailles and is offered by Sotheby's.

A simple addition of chandeliers dripping in Crystal and this could be my home!  

10 bedrooms, 10,807 square feet, a spa/hot tub, private gym, and indoor pool, a sauna, & hammam. Yes, I would say that is livable ;)

The outside has a guest house, an orchard, a well to water with, and a garden shelter. 

Did I mention that the home sits right in front of the Chateau? I can only imagine who has lived here and the soirées that these walls have seen.
