Parisian Perfection

01 . 12 . 10

I’m being a busy little bee working on my client projects getting quotes so I hope you’ll forgive me for a short post. After seeing the photo of me in Paris yesterday, I thought it might be fitting to post an apartment in Paris. Hamish Bowles is an Englishman living in New York working for […]

The Louvre

11 . 22 . 09

I just attended an event for the Young Patrons group of the American Friends of the Louvre and thought this would make a good time to post some of photos of this amazing museum! Since our hotel was just across the Seine from the Louvre, we often walked past it and even through it as […]

Cordelia Times Deux

11 . 02 . 09

When I first saw Cordelia de Castellane in her Paris apartment in the April 2009 issue of Elle Decor, I thought she looked familiar. She was featured in her old apartment in the March 2007 issue of House & Garden magazine. I remembered her because I posted some of the photos from that feature shortly […]

Jardin du Luxembourg

10 . 28 . 09

The weather in New York today was rainy and left everyone in a funk so I thought it the perfect time to revisit summer and Paris! On the last day of our trip, Stefan left early so I was on my own until I had to head to the airport. After I saw the queue […]

When I returned from Paris, I ran into Pierre Frey (the grandson of THE Pierre Frey) at a party and told him that I can’t believe he chooses to live in New York when he could be living in the most gorgeous city in the world! He actually only lives here half the year but […]

Pierre Frey in Paris

10 . 12 . 09

While in Paris last month, Stefan and I had a rare treat. After stopping by the Pierre Frey showroom on the rue du Mail, we walked over to the headquarters to see their archives. What we were surprised to learn is that Pierre Frey archive doesn’t just contain Pierre Frey fabrics but fabrics that they […]

Chic Cyclists

10 . 11 . 09

I tired to take photos of all the cyclists I saw while in Paris but most of them came out a little blurry since they were moving! Luckily, I managed to catch these two chic cyclists as they chatted near the rue Royale. Make sure you notice her kitten heels. Tres chic!

Did you know there is a David Hicks France gallery in Paris? Neither did I. Lucky for me, I happened to walk by it on my way to the Jardin du Luxembourg on the last day of my trip. David Hicks designs have been emulated and expanded on by many designers over the years but […]

La Maison d’Hermes

10 . 04 . 09

Hermes is synonymous with Paris and the shops are always packed with tourists looking to buy a bit of French-ness to bring back from their trip. I was surprised that the saddles cost less than the Birkins but I guess that is due to the simple economic principle of supply and demand. I don’t think […]

Palais Royal

10 . 03 . 09

One of my favorite places in Paris is the Palais Royal and especially the gardens. It’s a lovely tranquil place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Stefan and I actually ate lunch in the garden one day which was a nice treat. It also happens to be home to the celebrated interior […]

Lanvin: Part Deux

09 . 30 . 09

No trip to Paris would be complete without a trip to Lanvin. We are lucky in New York that Barneys and Kirna Zabete carry some pieces of clothing and jewelry but that’s nothing like having entire store full of nothing but Lanvin! It was heaven! Lanvin is known for their creative window displays and we […]

One of my favorite things from Paris was viewing the reconstructed apartment of fashion designer Jeanne Lanvin at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. It consists of her boudoir, chambre de coucher and salle de bain that were designed for her by Armand Albert Rateau for her apartment at 16, rue Barbet-de-Jouy in Paris in . […]
