Former French Schoolhouse Turned Enchanting Artist Studio

We came upon this artist by way of friend and photographer Kirsty Mitchell who wrote, “I literally don't think I have ever seen anything as utterly beautiful as the work and home studio of the artist Claire Basler. I think my idea of dying and going to heaven would be waking up in her studio. It's breathtaking, my brain is in pieces!”

Claire Basler is a French floral painter who lives and works in a former schoolhouse in Les Ormes, right outside of Paris. On a daily basis, she creates huge floral arrangements and puts them around her house, using them as sources of inspiration for her paintings. “In her garden, she witnesses nature's fight for life against the wind, the rain, and the sun,” according to the Telegraph. “This is what Claire Basler portrays in her paintings: the strength and frailty of a flower, the reassuring nature of a tree, the metamorphosis of a simple poppy.”

Her home studio has been featured in Elle Decor multiple times for its uniqueness and beauty. Who wouldn't want to live/work here?
