Blue-and-White Decor Extraordinaire: The Gardens and Tente Tartare of Chateau de Groussay
Charles de Beistegui (also known as Carlos de Beistegui) was best known for the “party of the century” he hosted at his Palazzo Labia in Venice in 1951. Chateau de Groussay in Montfort-l’Amaury, France, was built in 1815. After de Beistegui purchased it in 1939, he set out to expand the property, taking his decorating cues from the English. This estate, which was featured by fellow blogger, Heather Clawson, of Habitually Chic, is nothing short of FABULOUS! Click the links below to read her two posts, and to view the complete collection of spectacular Chateau de Groussay photos.
Heather’s second post is my favorite of the two! Featured in it are the incredible gardens at Chateau de Groussay. As you may recall, I have an obsession with blue-and-white pottery! Knowing that, you can understand the reason that I absolutely could not resist sharing the following photos of de Beistegui’s famous Tente Tartare. Its decor truly took my breath away!
Rather than a true tent, the exterior of Chateau de Groussay’s Tente Tartare is actually painted wood (see detail below).
The interior is completely clad in spectacular Delft tiles (below).
Mammoth-sized blue-and-white urns are monumental adornments of the gardens.
NOW, GO HAVE AN “It’s So Fabulous!” DAY!
