French Country Style Entry

by Ariane ~ May 28, 2012

The painter Claude Monet had a special eye for refined and simple countryside elegance.

Here, the main entrance to his home at Giverny, an harmony of tender pink and bright green, enhanced by two blue Chinese pots.

The balance is obtained by the symetry of the decoration.

The curtains behind the iron cast door make it look like a puppet theatre.

    The plant pots are very nice. What plants are they? I would like to emulate the planting of the pots in my garden.

    The colorful little flowers are cinerarias. As for the big ones, I’m not totally sure, but they look like anisodontea.
