For a while now I have been working on the Billard Room, located on the ground floor of the Petit Trianon.
In rl this room has recently been restored with plain white boiserie. I decided to be a bit more elaborate in sl and took my inspiration from "la salle des jeux de la reine Marie Antoinette" (Marie Antoinette's games room) in the Chateau de Compiègne. I used details from the wallpaper and boiserie which abounds with cherubs and flowers on a white background.I have been working with a new technique that creates three dimensional sculpts and used this to create some new accessories for this room. Both the Cherub Mirror and the Cherub Wall Sconce take advantage of this 3D modelling. These items are original to Compiègne and it was fun to put them back together here. I also added an old favourite, The Queen's Boudoir Fireplace since it also featured cherubs and flower garlands.
For those of you that enjoy little secrets, look for the hidden door that goes from the billard room to the room for the china & silverwear. It is located to the right of the fireplace as it is in rl :))
