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?!
achnacarry castle is in scotland (in case you couldn’t guess by the name) – these photographs are by michael prince and were taken with a hasselblad 503cx. i know three things from these photos: 1. michael prince is talented 2. they instantly made me think of my grandmother and 3. i really want a hasselblad.
once upon a time (that’s how this feels) we took a train trip from prague to füssen then hopped on a bus to hohenschwangau and made our way up the hill to the neuschwanstein castle. fun!
