That thing up top? Not an upside down pineapple 🍍(that was my first guess ) Also nope not a strange artichoke.... Any takers? ⤵️ . The temple of Diana in Villa Borghese was built in the dead center of the park, as an incredible tribute to the goddess of the hunt. Over the centuries her statue has been removed, but the stunning ceiling pays homage to her name with beautiful depictions of wild animals. Wanna see more of the most gorgeous spots in this unforgettable place? Click the link in bio for 7 can’t miss sights + a downloadable map of Rome’s Villa Borghese Gardens. 🏛 . Oh yeah, and on top of this now classical masterpiece? It’s a famous symbol for a region of Rome- the pinecone!

🔥🏛This heatwave really got me thinking: indoor pools are really where it’s at. 🏰So if you need me, I’ll be drooling over the “Roman Pool” in California’s Hearst Castle. ✨And as hot as Rome is during the summer, they really should start bringing these babies back in style, huh? A little history of the Roman pools via @hearstcastleshm : “The Roman Pool at Hearst Castle is a tiled indoor pool decorated with eight statues of Roman gods, goddesses and heroes. The pool appears to be styled after an ancient Roman bath such as the Baths of Caracalla in Rome c. 211-17 CE. The mosaic tiled patterns were inspired by mosaics found in the 5th Century Mausoleum of Galla Placidia in Ravenna, Italy. They are also representative of traditional marine monster themes that can be found in ancient Roman baths. The statues are rough copies of ancient Greek and Roman statues. One such copy represents the “Apoxyomenos.” Statuary was used on a considerable scale in the Baths of Caracalla. The pool and surrounding room, which were built from 1927-1934, can be compared to an ancient Roman bath. The pool, like the baths, is located indoors. Its water was heated as in a tepidarium. However, in Hearst’s complex there were no hot or cold baths as there were in the ancient complex. The Roman Pool complex was designed to contain an exercise room, sweat baths, a handball court and dressing rooms.” Photo via @watts place @bellnjerry#castle #california #thespacesilike #somewhereiwouldliketolive #italiandesign #indoorpool #accidentallywesanderson #apartmenttherapy #dominomag #archdigest #creativearchitecture #architecture_hunter #homedecor #architecturelovers #design #archilovers #symmetry #interiordesign #architecture #interiors #interiordesigner #roomonfire #architexture #interiordesigncommunity #creative_architecture #worldofinteriors #homeinspiration #interiordesign #casavogue #hearstcastle

🏛This historic villa in Rome houses one of the most beautiful rooms I’ve ever seen, and also one of the creepiest! . . The hall of mirrors was majorly inspired by #Versailles , and the entire villa was frescoed by the greatest late baroque artists of the 1760s. . . But the elaborate family chapel- while beautiful, contains the mummified corpse of the family saint...with its head on full display! . . Even though the family still own the residence with one of the largest private art collections, it’s been regarded as the families most cherished possession 💕 More photos of this amazing palace and art collection soon! . #statue #historic #palazzo #symmetrical #symmetry #accidentallywesanderson #glass #roma #archilovers #mydomainetravels #suitcasetravels #postcardplaces #palace #theeverygirl #darlingescapes #theprettycities #cntraveler #travelgram #sheisnotlost #letsgosomewhere #wanderlust #acolorstory #culturetrip #travelnow #travelwithlove #mirrors #unescoworldheritage #creativearchitecture #finditstyleit

🌿✨The Villa Borghese Gardens are the prettiest in the world, and I’m not just saying that because I had my first date with my husband here.😉 🏛One of my favorite parts is this small lake, surrounded by the classical “Temple of Aesculapius”. Built in 1785, it houses what’s believed to be an ancient statue of the Greek god of medicine. ✨💕On hot summer days, it’s a ton of fun to watch all the couples taking romantic boat rides around the little “laghetto”, while marveling at the fact that this used to be in someone’s backyard 🏛🌿😆 . . . #classical #villaborgheseroma #villa #italiangardens #gardens #symmetry #unescoworldheritage #topromephoto #romeitaly #symmetrical #igrome #igersrome #unesco #historic #historicpreservation #dametraveler #archilovers #mytinyatlas #neverstopexploring #passionpassport #petitejoys #pursuepretty #sheisnotlost #takemethere #tasteintravel #thatsdarling #theculturetrip #travelawesome #travellingthroughtheworld

💒Finally took my head out of my pasta bowl long enough to share the incredible ceiling of Sant'Agnese in Piazza Navona. • Can you believe this ornate baroque church was a family “chapel”? The Pamphili family even had an opening placed in the dome so that they could take part in religious services from their adjacent Palazzo. • #Piazzanovana is probably the most beautiful square in Rome, filled with insanely intricate sculptures and fountains, and this ornate church.

The Pink Palace of Louisville💕 • 🏰Old Louisville’s got one of the largest concentrations of restored Victorian homes in the United States, and this rose colored beauty is still the shining star of St. James Court. As a kid I always loved this “pink lady”, but today think I stumbled on a stunning new fav! • 🏛Check it out now along with a mini tour of these lovely mansions, on my stories!💕 • The Pink Palace, built in 1891, wasn’t originally a home, but an exclusive Gentleman's Club and Casino for the residents of the Court. It got its name in the 1920s when it was painted pink by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, its owner at the time. • The St. James–Belgravia Historic District, within Old Louisville, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. It comprises St. James Court (north ) and the Belgravia Court (south ). The area is famous for the St. James Court Art Show that takes place the first weekend of October, and attracts thousands of visitors, artisans, and craftsmen. The Belgravia area features houses inspired by its namesake in London, England. • #victorian #oldlouisville #oldhomelove #symmetry #symmetrykillers #accidentallywesanderson #pink #pinkhouse #creativearchitecture #worldofinteriors #facade #historichomes #castle #homeinspiration #dreamhome #luxuryhome #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #oldhousecharm #chasing_facades #thefrontdoorproject #igerslouisville #housebeautiful #homesweethome #houseportrait #curbappeal #kentucky #home #house #socharming @southernlivingmag @countrylivingmag @betterhomesandgardens @housebeautiful

🏛🌿One of the only views on como that may be even prettier than the lake: Villa Sola Cabiati ✨"Built in the 16th century, the Villa was bought by the Dukes of Serbelloni in the 18th to be their summer escape from the heat of Milan. 🏰In this age of exuberant decadence, no expense was spared to make the Villa the most spectacular on the Lake. The façade was redesigned in the Neoclassical style and the two side wings, impressive staircase, marble balconies and characteristic blue shutters – reflecting the lake waters – were added. 🎨Great artists were brought in to embellish the halls and rooms with elaborate stuccoes and frescoes resulting in spectacular period décor."

🌿🏰Are you a little tired just imagining how long it takes to walk back there? Good news: you can visit the Royal Palace of Caserta without making the hike. Click the link in bio for 10 binge worthy Netflix titles about palaces 💕 • • • Rather go in person? It’s so worth the stroll not to miss a second of these stunning baroque gardens. 🌿You can also catch a shuttle and get an intimate tour of the hidden areas outside the vista. Trust me, it’s the best. ✨🌿 • • • “The garden, a typical example of the baroque extension of formal vistas, stretches for 120 ha, partly on hilly terrain. It is also inspired by the park of Versailles. The park starts from the back façade of the palace, flanking a long alley with artificial fountains and cascades. There is a botanical garden, called "The English Garden", in the upper part designed in the 1780s by Carlo Vanvitelli and the German-born botanist, nurseryman, plantsman-designer, John Graefer, trained in London and recommended to Sir William Hamilton by Sir Joseph Banks.[11] It is an early Continental example of an "English garden" in the svelte naturalistic taste of Capability Brown. The fountains and cascades, each filling a vasca (basin ), with architecture and hydraulics by Luigi Vanvitelli at intervals along a wide straight canal that runs to the horizon, rivalled those at Peterhof outside St. Petersburg.

✨🏛Picture 19th Century Paris: Majestic and mysterious, but awful in inclement weather. That’s when the new era of the Grand Galeries was born. Check out my “Paris For Design Lover’s Guide” for this, and 11 other must see spots in the city of lights! Link in bio for more. ✨• • • These interconnected passages gave Parisians for the first time, a clean, dry, and well lit display of the finest shops in France. Of course their popularity declined after the invention of department stores, (thanks @galerieslafayette 😉💕 ) but luckily some of the finest ones, like Galerie Vivienne are still around today. It was being restored during my last trip, and man doesn’t that mosaic tike floor still look incredible?! • • • “The gallery was built in 1823 by Marchoux, President of the Chamber of Notaries. Located between the Palais-Royal, the Paris Bourse (stock exchange ) and the Grands Boulevards, the passage enjoyed considerable success until the end of the Second Empire.François-Jacques Delannoy conceived the decor in neo-classical Pompeian style covered with an elegant canopy, with mosaics, paintings and sculptures exalting trade. The restoration work rehabilitated the abundant ornaments around the half-moon windows, and the goddesses and nymphs that adorn the rotunda. The mosaic floors are signed Giandomenico Facchina and Mazzioli. Their sobriety emphasized by the repetition of simple geometric shapes is reminiscent of the style of the mosaics of the Rue de Rivoli. The 42 metres (138 ft ) long gallery is sheltered by a glazed rotunda with a hemispherical glass dome that allows for air circulation.”- text and photo via wikipedia #IgersParis #ParisJeTaime #Parigi #TopParisPhoto #ParisMaVille #ParisCartePostale #Loves_Paris #VisitParis #ParisCityVision #ParisWeLoveYou #WeLoveYouParis #Super_France #France_Vacations #TopFrancePhoto #VisitLaFrance #Exclusive_France #window #arch #neoclassical #designinspiration #mosaic #creativearchitecture #architecture_hunter #amazingarchitecture #architecturelovers #archilovers #architect #architexture #ihavethisthingwithfloors

💛🏛The thing I love most about historic homes? All the different layers! Modifications over the years really tell a cool story about how they made it to the modern age. ✨Case in point: the perfect #accidentallywesanderson facade of the Quadrille Palace. Story via @accidentallywesanderson • “Quadrille Palace is located in Gdynia, Poland and while it is not known when the first manor building was built, it is certain that the current palace was constructed on the foundations of an older object, the history of which goes as far back as the Middle Ages. The von Krockow family who owned the estate starting in 1730 made the most significant changes to the structure with the addition of the baroque and rococo residence. By the end of the 18th century, an octagonal aviary building was built in the surrounding vast park. The estate was purchased in 1847 by baron Wilhelm von Brauchitsch who initiated a radical English neo-Gothic design reconstruction of the property. The date ‘1859' placed on the main portal of the building commemorates the end of this, and the von Brauchitsch family coat of arms • In the 1920s, the Polish government purchased the estate and resold it to the Senator of the Free City of Gdańsk, who broke up the estate. A decade later, a portion of the property was handed over to the Union of Polish Teachers, who were using the building until 1939 when a Gestapo unit became stationed in the Palace during WWII. • In November 2006 Górski Construction Company took over the historic manor house and initially, sublet it to the Gdynia Film School before conducting a major renovation effort turning the property into a luxury accommodation establishment” • 📷:  @funkyspion ✍:  @wikipedia@hotelquadrille @accidentallywesanderson • • • #symmetry #symmetrykillers #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #Travelmore #Poland 🇵🇱 #castle #facade #details #classic #archilovers #cityscape #entrance #frontdoor #instahome #instadesign #designinspiration #apartmenttherapy #dominomag #archdigest #finditstyleit #architecture_hunter #amazingarchitecture #architecturelovers #architexture #creative_architecture #pursurepretty #interiordesigncommunity #worldofinteriors

🌿🌸Life hack: when it’s too hot to go outside during the summer, bring the summer in. That’s exactly what Austrian artist Johann Wenzel Bergel did with these idyllic murals in the Garden Rooms at Schloss Schonbrunn. Aren’t they incredible?! • For more palace inspo, check out all the castle inspired titles on Netflix right now 🏰💕Link in bio • 🏛🌸“Bergl Rooms, they are notable above all for their murals, which range from exotic landscapes to formal Baroque gardens; illusionistic painting that aimed at dissolving the confines of the room and merging the painted representation of Nature on the walls with the real landscape beyond the windows. Bergl had to make do with engravings as the source for some of his motifs of flora and fauna, even though the court plant collections, steadily enriched as a result of the expeditions sponsored by Franz Stephan, contained an abundance of specimens.” Text via Schloss Schonbrunn💫 • •spotted via @kellywearstler#schlossschonbrunn #mural #dametraveler #cntraveler #archilovers #travelinspo #decorhardcore #palace #castle #handpainted #fresco #somewhereiwouldliketolive #apartmenttherapy #dominomag #archdigest #finditstyleit #rsa_architecture #creativearchitecture #architecture_hunter #amazingarchitecture #architecturelovers #architecturedesign #archilovers #archidaily #architecturephotography #architexture #creative_architecture #worldofinteriors #homeinspiration #interiordesign

🏛🌿Symmetry Saturday: The beautiful Château de Tourreau in southern France. • • • 🏰In 1612, the Bourgeois Tourreau family from Avignon acquired a fertile plot of land located in Sarrians. • • • ⚜️The Château as we see it today was built between 1750 and 1770 following the plans of architect Esprit-Joseph Brun. • • • 🏛The building was nearly destroyed during the French Revolution when a group of protesters set fire to the main ‘’ corps de logis ‘’. The Chateau has been restored since and is now available to rent as a high end holiday home.
