My husband and I love to travel throughout Europe, but especially France. Everything about France intrigues me, especially the old buildings and architecture, the castles, museums, the Eiffel Tower, the Seine River, the countryside, the flowers, the food--including the pastries, the chocolate, the chicken at Le Grande Colbert, all of the cities, and the people!
For the longest time I have desired to have a mural painted in my downstairs bathroom that reminded me of France. I wanted it to feel like you were inside of a painting of a French landscape. This mural has fulfilled my dreams. Above is the picture you see reflected in the mirror as you enter the bathroom and also the wall that you face when you are taking care of business. ;-)
This scene is painted above the shower.
The scene above is behind the door when you enter the room and highlights the French countryside as does the one below with France's many sunflower fields.
This is the view atop the back end of the shower.
Two cottages pair up to replicate homes on a hillside amidst lavender fields near the castle.
Voila! Here is how my friend repaired the inadequate castle. It looks so much more like a castle and so much more French! I love the greenery in front of the castle rather than the building that looked like an apartment carport.
