Summer makes me think of Claude Monet and his home in Giverny, where he lived for 43 years. The French painter, one of the founders of the Impressionist movement, had one of the most beautiful properties in Normandy.
I can only imagine walking through his house and garden and dream of what the atmosphere of the kitchen with its walls covered in blue Rouen tiles must have been like. The coolness of the blue contrasting with the soft glow of the copper pots and utensils is inspiring. I envision fresh flowers strewn about, with vegetables from the garden being prepared for family and friends.
We may never have the house, however, we are now able to have the kitchen tiles thanks to Pavé Tile, Wood & Stone, Inc. This American company has recreated Monet’s tiles, ensuring that any combination of the hand painted blue and white works of art will add French elegance to any style of kitchen.
