As many of you know…I want my own castle…I know…sounds weird to most people who have regular dreams. Most people probably desire and dream of a beautiful family, general happiness and health for their families, a nice normal well appointed house, lots of friendship and love, a great next job, an exciting trip…you know that stuff that every day dreams are made of. Well sure I want that stuff too, but I know my dreams are really about living in a chateau, castle or grand villa…I would want all of those other regular dreams too…just while living in the castle. That’s it. Make sense? Hmmmm…
This photo shows an “enfilade”, a succession of doorways in a formal grand home. Just in case you had not heard this architecture term before…here is the definition.
Definition of “enfilade” Wikipedia: “In architecture, an enfilade is a suite of rooms formally aligned with each other. This was a common feature in grand European architecture from the Baroque period onwards, although there are earlier examples, such as the Vatican stanze. The doors entering each room are aligned with the doors of the connecting rooms along a single axis, providing a vista through the entire suite of rooms.”
Usually these enfilades are in quite grand homes – reminds me of Versailles or what you might see in royal European home. I want my own enfilade…rooms upon rooms, doors leading to more doors.
There I said it! Maybe for Christmas?
