I’m obsessed with everything in gold and it’s kinda funny because when I was younger I went the opposite way. Because there was so much fuzz about gold I thought silver was more special. Maybe that is one of the reasons that I absolutely adore it now. I mean just anything from interior, jewellery, clothes, decorations, dishes you name it, if it has gold I’m a fan. So you can imagine how I felt when we arrived to the Palace of Versailles! I feel like I’m repeating myself but that is because I really loved this place so much! Everything there was gilded and so glamorous. So I wanted to add a few videos from Youtube to this post that shows how professional gilders do their work. It is really a lot of work but the result is stunning!

These videos are not mine. I just wanted to post them here so that you can see the process of the gilding. The images above is taken by me on our trip to Paris a week ago.
