Charming House In Giverny

August 12, 2015
My friend and very talented textile designer just came back from her vacation in France and she was so much excited about the house where they stayed.
I had a look at the pictures she sent to me and think it is absolutely gorgeous! It is located 5 minutes from Monet’s garden in Giverny and 45 min drive to Paris. The man who owns it is an architectural antiques dealer and he converted the stables next to his house.
I totally love the rustic style of this house, created with distressed wood, tiles, collection of decorative plates and antique architectural features such as doors, columns and old fashioned stove.

It’s a lovely house! I love when people preserve old buildings and give them new life–and share them with others. And how nice to be able to stay near Monet’s house while visiting it.

Before we left France after living there for 11 years, I wanted to see Monet’s house and gardens. My best friend and I made a trip to Paris to “do” the Clignancourt “puces” (flea market) and see Monet’s estate. It was a marvelous trip, and I’m so glad we did it. I lost her to cancer a few years later, but I still have those wonderful memories of the beautiful house and gardens. And speaking of lovely houses–you should do a post on Monet’s house some time!
