Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

La Maison Rose ........




This delightful pink house was home to Claude Monet
 and his family for over 43 years

He painted it pink to match the delicate cherry blossoms, tulips
 and soft crab-apple blooms in Spring

I've seen original Monet paintings in museums.. but never had the pleasure of seeing one of his homes.
Lovely!

It seems to have had a rather modern face-lift for, as I remember it, the shutters and trim were certainly not that chemical green.

Nice close up shot of the window and shutters. I've enjoyed visiting Monet's home and gardens before too. On Mondays I have a Dreaming of France meme. I'd love it if you wanted to link to that too. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

Beautiful captures of a place I love. I have been there many, many times when I lived close to this place.

Lovely home. Monet is one of my favourite painters but I hadn't seen his home before. Thanks for sharing.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Beautiful. I love his paintings and I suspect I would love to see this house in person. Beautifully captured!

Beautiful! Not only did Monet recreate the Light but also the Colors that he loved. I was surprised to see such stunning colors inside as well as out.
