so there i was going down a google image rabbit hole and i found pictures of this beautiful château filled with flowers, and paintings of flowers, which lead me to French artist Claire Basler – and here we are. she lives and paints in her home Château de Beauvoir, “a natural choice” she explains (i mean, of course). and while her paintings aren’t totally my flavour, the way they compliment the dramatic interiors of this historic castle is very pleasing, impressive and kinda dreamy. also, how cool is that tree growing in the kitchen?!

I like daisies, fragile and passionate poppies, breezes, wind, grace, gentleness and its force, storms, the mystery of still waters. The vast sky in the puddles that line a dirt road and the tree that forces me to be silent, patient. There are magnificent ones at Beauvoir.

check out her website. she also has a book of her paintings & interior shots of the château.

  1. I always thought it’d be incredible to live in a place that felt like an eternal summer, that’s exactly what her home looks like to me!

  2. this place looks totally insane. it’s beautiful, but can you imagine the sweeping you’d have to do? ayayay!

  3. Her home is amazing! It’s great that she gets to work at home, but is surrounded by such a great environment.

    I love her work and her work space — have been inspired by her work, her discipline and her life for ages

  5. Her home is incredible ! You would always see something different every time you visited.I love her sense of style!

  6. How lucky she is to have a whole house as her palette. I’ve always wished I had the courage to paint murals on my walls.

  7. It’s a bit rude to say her paintings aren’t your flavor when you are using her photos to post all over your blog. Might want to delete that part.

  8. Such an intense space….especially the bedroom with the four post bed. I imagine here your dreams would be filled will cool mist and cliff echoes.

  9. What an amazing place, breathtaking.
    I find the slick straight furniture design such perfect choice alongside the flowers man.

  10. Great what flowers and plants can do to a room atmosphere. Whether real or painted – this is very, very special! :-)

  11. That’s so unique! Looks like nature has taken over and you have to learnagain the feeling of being part of it. ALmost shocking at first bbut (very) soon cozy and warm. Love it!

  12. So bummed that her studio tour will happen after I was in Paris, two weeks ago. Anyone know if she ever teaches painting workshops?

    I would love to know that amazing woman. What wonderful talent! Many flower paintings are a little boring, not hers. Absolutely wonderful!
