A Brand New Week, Plus Parisian Inspiration

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was busy and the 50 degree temperatures were a delight compared to the sub-zero temps and foot of snow we received last weekend.

Inspiring me is this wonderful book, “Paris: An Inspiring Tour of the City’s Creative Heart,”  I purchased before our last trip to Paris.  It’s a must for every Francophile’s library.  It’s full of recommendations, beautiful styling and photographs, as well as unveiling hidden gems.  Divided by arrondissements, it gives a charming view of the city.  If you will be traveling to Paris, or simply dreaming and wanting to be visually transported, this book will be a good addition to your library.  I have many books on Paris and this is a favourite.

Also inspiring me is the Philippe Starck Ghost Chair.  I went to a design party hosted by a local firm last week and saw so many things I want to buy for my home, mostly a Ghost Chair.  I purchased new bookshelves for my home office and a new glass desk that the chair would be a perfect accompaniment to.

Wishing you a most beautiful week ahead!

Bisous, B
