Petit Trianon: Queen's Library
The Queen's library does not contain nearly as many books as her library at Versailles does. But the ones that survives to this day still bears the Queen's arms as well as the letters "CT" (Château Trianon) on the calfskin binding. The main tone in this library is a pale apple-green used for the walls, the curtains and the chairs. The cupboards were lost in the 19th century but were restored in 2008 according to the original drawings by Mique dating back to 1780. One thing that is the same as at Versailles is the idea with the curtains within the book cabinets.
