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?!
last week i posted this photo on Instagram without even thinking twice, which resulted in an unprecedented number of comments of women left and right chiming in that they, too, had this particular problem. i mean – we basically all want to look like French mimes, right? these aren’t even all the striped shirts i own you guys.
“Bérangère Claire presents each season a new collection of classics and basics with refined details … all garments that are easy to wear everyday, but more than a fashion, a style, simple and chic at affordable prices.”
if i ever have a lovely little beach house to decorate, these prints would slipstream right in there – by wayne pate
sometimes i get really amusing search engine terms, eg: “models + babes + photography” or “black and white pussy” (….) but the BEST one i’ve had so far is, “perhaps pierre? monique?”
this part always makes me laugh and laugh
La fille que j’aimera
Sera comme bon vin
Qui se bonifiera
Un peu chaque matin.
The girl that I will love
