INSPIRING INTERIORS OF PARIS

Paris is a place where, for me, just walking down a street that I’ve never been down before is like going to a movie or something. Just wandering the city is entertainment.”
— Wes Anderson

There is something about the Parisian interior. There is a certain magic to it. It has an effortless vibe. Things blend so organically together, even though you know that they really had no prior orientation together before coming together in a certain room. But it just flows, they aren’t overthought, they aren’t overdone, they are elegant, chic and leave you craving more.

There seems to always be a spot for books - an overflowing amount of books. Just enough to get lost in.

The Parisian interior is curated and welcoming. You feel wrapped up, safe and inspired. Really, you never want to leave.

Even their tattoo studios are well designed, I couldn’t help but smile with this fresh and inviting space for Désolée Papa

I’m not sure about you, but Paris is a place of inspiration and excitement for me. It’s rare there isn’t a smile on my face with every turn of a corner. What are some of your favorite Parisian moments and must stop places?

With love & design-y dreams,

INSPIRATION: How do you take you stripes?

Stripes: Such an amazing design statement. They can be bold and modern, dainty and traditional, subtle and romantic-- so many options! What is your personal stripe style?

Get creative with how you create your stripes, it doesn't have to be so literal through wallpaper or paint, just think about how you lay out your materials. They created the perfect stripe look with paint and the modern cabinets. Plus, we can't ignore the beautiful natural wood stripes the planks create!

INSPIRATION: HOTEL - LA RÉSERVE PARIS

Today, an email from Rue popped in my inbox, I was introduced to La Réserve Paris and immediately smitten. Monochromatic colors, clean lines, oh boy those clean lines mixed with the Parisian vibe, I’m in love! Rarely, do I talk about something on the blog as soon as it hits my inbox, but today I really felt compelled. This design is truly breathtaking. Whenever I get the opportunity to travel to Paris, I am surely going to attempt to book a reservation here!
