The Petit Trianon Comes to SF!

C'est incroyable! San Francisco's Legion of Honor Museum will be exhibiting "88 pieces of the finest furniture, paintings, and sculpture from [Marie's Petit Trianon]. It is complemented by watercolors, prints, and drawings of the house and its innovative landscaping..."

I'm moving to London, so I'll miss the launch of this must-see exhibit on November 17. But, as luck would have it, I'll be back for co-blogger Amy's wedding in February, so hopefully I'll catch it before it closes on February 17. By the way, did you know that Tiffany blue (aka "Nattier blue") was Marie's favorite color?

  1. Four most important words in this post: "I'm moving to London." Romancing the Tome is going global! We will have a correspondant living in the heart of all things British and wonderful! I'm jealous. Luckily, i can hopefully go visit and now have a pace to crash.
