Salvador Domènec Felip Jacint Dalí i Domènechi's house!
Hmmm... this was an interesting experience! Salvador Dali was definitely a great artist, genius and also a bit crazy. He had the most amazing imagination as we can see in these photos from one of his houses. Even it's a museum now, all the furnitures and decorations are in their original places. I asked!
It's real! I think he didn't care about nature that much, he also had jacket made of giraff...
Still something left
"Later, in September 1938, Salvador Dalí was invited by Gabrielle Coco Chanel to her house La Pausa in Roquebrune on the French Riviera."
Dalí slept in the left side
They had separated bathrooms, this is his
And here she maybe took a bubble bath
"He was also involved in creating textile designs and perfume bottles. In 1950, Dalí created a special "costume for the year 2045" with Christian Dior."
"Every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí."
"His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem and to the irritation of his critics."
Room he designed for his wife
"He connects the egg to the prenatal and intrauterine, thus using it to symbolize hope and love."
"The wood and satin Mae West Lips Sofa was shaped after the lips of actress Mae west, whom Dalí apparently found fascinating." (This is just a plastic one)
