In this chateau in the South of France, artist Claire Basler has made her home into her canvas. Almost every wall is covered in bold, oversized florals and foliage, which mix with actual florals and foliage to create a transportive, poetic dreamscape of a home.
Claire, whose art is inspired by nature, has found plenty to inspire her in the grounds of the 13th-century Chateau de Beauvoir. She's brought that inspiration inside with lush murals depicting trees and flowers, which are oversized and exaggerated almost as if in a dream.
Enhancing the effect are plenty of actual flowers and even trees, like the ones growing in the living room and kitchen, which give the home a touch of the surreal.
I love this bedroom, where the linens and furniture complement, but don't compete with, the dark, moody florals on the walls.
Another bedroom repeats the same dark, almost stormy, palette; in the bathroom, only a touch of a floral mural appears on the wall of the shower.
I first spotted Claire's home at Lina Josefin Berg. You can see more photos of the home on Claire's website, and see her other paintings here. You can also see photos of the chateau in this article from Australian magazine Inside Out.
