Interiors: A Parisian Home

Of course I still have Paris on my mind even though I’ve been home for a few days. Did you follow along my Instagram photos? Do you want to see more? I have much to share, so stay tuned for those posts in the weeks ahead. For now, here’s a gorgeous Parisian apartment in the 6th arrondissement that could be yours for just over 5 million euros.

Travel: One Fine Stay in Paris

No, no, I don’t have a trip planned to Paris (yet), but I do enjoy a good accommodation browse every so often. On my recent tour of the Internet, I landed on One Fine Stay‘s selection of vacation rentals, and my jaw dropped. I want to stay in almost every apartment! Let’s have un coup d’oeil, shall we?

These places are pretty incredible, aren’t they? Don’t you just want to book a flight (and win the lottery)?

At Home: Styling my Dresser with Posterjack

How is everyone enjoying Family Day (here in Ontario) and Presidents’ Day (in the USA)? I am completely enjoying having an extra day to do, well, not a whole lot! I still have an annoying cough that is really just slowing me down.¬†It’s very annoying.

A few weeks ago,¬†my Posterjack order arrived, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the French¬†photo¬†and the white lacquer framing. It’s a beautiful piece. I placed it¬†in several¬†spots around my home before settling on my bedroom. I leaned it over my dresser, lived with it like that for a few days, and realized it¬†was an ideal place to put it. I played around with some minimal styling, too.¬†Have a look…

Thanks to Tim F. & Posterjack for sending me this beautifully framed Parisian photo.

Photography: Black & White Continued

After I featured these black and white photographs, my friend Kathlyn sent me over these photos of one of the bathrooms in her new home.

ferris-wheel-photography-Paris-2 ferris-wheel-photography-Paris-1Gorgeous, right? The wallpaper is¬†so dramatic, and I love the black-framed mirror. What’s¬†even more special about¬†this space (for me, anyway) is that the¬†black and white photos of the ferris wheel are mine. I took them years ago in Paris and Kathlyn blew them up and framed them.¬†I had¬†completely forgotten about the photographs, so to see them now in a new space is awesome.
