A day in Toulouse - La Ville Rose.

La Fondation Bemberg museum and art gallery is to be found in L'Hotel d'Assézat, one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in the heart of the pink city, near le Pont Neuf over the river Garonne.  It's just one of many magnificent buildings constructed in the second half of the 16th century thanks to the great wealth brought about by the trade of Pastel.

Plenty of design inspiration!
