The king of French cuisine, Alain Ducasse, is going to be opening a restaurant at the Chateau de Versailles! It is also part of a 20-room luxury hotel that will open its doors in 2018.  You will be able to dine like a King on “a terrace with a view of the Versailles orange grove and the Bosquet de la Reine gardens.” Read the article here.

Alain Ducasse’s restaurant at Le Meurice

The decor of the hotel and restaurant will stay in the style of Versailles! If it looks anything like the restaurant above, I think we will all swoon!  Alain Ducasse has earned 21 Michelin stars total!


This week I wrote about French Chinoiserie and How to Add Chinoiserie Decor to Your Home. I was writing the post I was looking at pretty Chinoiserie pieces… I’ve saved some of them and am sharing them with you!!

After I styled my table this week for a pretty French pink table setting, it had me looking back at my post when I was lusting for lustreware!  Ever heard of lustreware? It is a very pretty pink porcelain.
