A quick update!
I'm catching up on all of my photos and here's from our "Babymoon" (right before our June bug arrived) in March 2015 in Spain & France. It has literally eaten away at me every single day that I haven't edited these photos yet... it's like putting a piece of cake in front of a child and not letting them eat it for a year... I was working more than ever at the end of my pregnancy up until we arrived here in Rhode Island, and I finally have a little break for myself. Yay!
To see where I ended up on my Spain posts click here... you have to take a look at the Sagrada Familia! (The top highlight of my trip!)
The Dali House Museum was our first stop on our road trip and I was extremely excited about this. I'm not necessarily the biggest fan of Dali, compared to Picasso, Matisse, etc, but I was super excited to do a house tour and see a glimpse into his life. I was quite shocked that his home wasn't as crazy or bizarre as I thought it was... refer to some of his paintings. It was very refined and a lot of pieces and styles reminded me of homes I've photographed in CA... although I know the influence is vice versa.
I had mixed reviews about the tour. I loved going through his home and hearing about his life BUT they literally gave you 5 minutes to look at each room so I felt extremely rushed. I took TONS of photos so that I could look back at it and actually notice details but here's some photos of his home! And I didn't post like 75% of his home, figured if anyone actually wanted to go to save some surprise and I have way to many photos to edit :)
He lived on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Cadaqués, Spain in a little fisherman's town. The town is very preserved and if you were visiting you would of never even known that Dali's home was there.
Dali & his wife, also a painter. Um, yeah he was weird.
His cane collection. He was known for always having his canes.
Dining room. They said this is how he decorated his home, they said they really didn't touch much or move anything around.
His studio. The light was amazing. Here's just one view.
In his closet he had collages of personal photographs and magazines he was in. I didn't realize how successful he was in his lifetime... I feel like most artists get noticed after they die, but he didn't!
Outside dining room.
Views from his yard.
The infamous egg sculptures!
Outside fountain by his pool.
Sitting on the famous pink lip couch
I think I was 24 weeks pregnant here :)
Right outside his home were these cute homes with blue accents.
Overall thoughts, it was definitely worth the tour... if you're into art ;)
