Marie Antoinette is one of my favorite movies, and I love nothing about it more than all the palace interiors. I went through a very strong phase of wanting nothing but opulence: gilt-framed mirrors, wall tapestries, chandeliers, delicate pink ceramics. A lot of these are surprisingly easily within reach. Here’s my shopping list, and where I’ll be looking for my new palace décor.
I don’t want an apartment like Amélie’s because it looks like the inside of, like, a kidney. (Too much red/velvet/beaded.) But of course there are bits and pieces I would love to live with. These are the six home purchases I would make, all inspired by Amélie.
