Waddesdon Manor

DSCN8669Greetings from the gorgeous and grandiose Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, England! The stunning French chateau inspired mansion once owned in entirety by the Rothschild family could easily be described as a dream home and I for one wouldn’t mind moving in immediately. Granted, it’s no Versailles but in England I believe this is as close as one can possibly get.

Waddesdon Manor InteriorsI’ll be asking my darling grandmother for a refresher course in proper napkin folding so that one day perhaps my own dining table will look as triumphant as this. Luckily, I already have some of the tools necessary with a set of white table cloth napkins with my monogram. My dream of a palace is quickly becoming a reality.

  1. And how did you manage to get there? In the Ferrari?
    Beautiful pictures as always. You should compile a picture book of your fabulous life!

    • No, I wouldn´t put my money on Sweden. (Although I´m not an expert when it comes to Sweden or Swedish anything…) I know there was the occasional rattan chair by the mid 19th century and some fifty years onward but those chairs did not have the same design. It kind of reminds me of a Louis XV style carved dining chair in solid walnut but the shape is still slightly off, and I also miss the Rococo foliate motif. This mystery might justify another trip.
