It wasn’t too long ago that we featured one of Rodrigo’s desktops, but this one is a fresh take on an older classic that’s worth a look. The photo wallpaper is beautiful, and the way the Rainmeter widgets all fall into place really completes the theme. Here’s how to set it up.

A simple monochrome photo of the Eiffel Tower on a somewhat rainy day in Paris serves as the backdrop for a few well-placed Rainmeter skins that also act as quick-access launchers for all of Rodrigo’s commonly used files and folders. If you want the look for your Windows machine, here’s what you’ll need:

That’s all there is to this one. It’s pretty straight forward, and everything works really nicely when assembled. All in all, it’s a gorgeous combination, and it’s a huge improvement over the previous Parisian Desktop we posted way back when. If you have questions about how Rodrigo got everything working just the way he did, head over to his Flickr page to ask your questions!
