TRAVEL INSPIRATION & PHOTOGRAPHY: Nice
During my recent trip to the South of France, I came across the beautiful peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Captivated by endless sea views and elegant French properties, I ended up visiting the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild; an exquisite house constructed between 1905 and 1912 by Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild. The property itself is painted a light pink, and filled with typical 17th and 18th century French furnishings, delicately adorned with blues, creams and oranges with a hint of gold baroque, but not as sumptuous as The Palace of Versailles. I also visited Palais Lascaris in Nice, built a little earlier in the early 17th century, this palace houses an impressive collection of over 500 valuable instruments. The rooms are adorned with rich paintings in burnt oranges and blues, along with a ornate use of gold. An exquisite glimpse into the lives of the former French aristocracy.
