Just the word Chateau inspires me, be it a Chateau or Chateaubriand or Chateauneuf-du- Pape! I am not alone when it comes to being inspired by all things french as fellow blogger Joni from Cote de Texas has a passion and "joi de vivre" for french decor.
I wonder what she would design given this "Chateau!" I immediately think of Joni when I think of anything French. She has a special touch. A french touch down in Texas. The french also love Texas, cowboy boots, classic westerns, and a smokin bbq.
I was inspired to illustrate this "Chateau de Bachen" - which belongs to Chef Michel Guerard who has 3 stars for his magnificent cuisine. Visit the site for a taste of France and listen for a taste of Spring.
Trust me you will be as inspired as I and you can also visit Cote de Texas and feel tres francais!
Tell me, do you have a penchant for French?
