My dream: an apartment in Paris


Ever since my return from an amazing ten day stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world, I dream of escaping to the City of Light to write...and I can't help but try to imagine how my space would be decorated...


I think that the bedroom would look a bit like this:


With a tiny nook for entertaining...


It would have a cozy reading corner...


I would have a small terrace overlooking a quiet courtyard...



A few items picked up at the local flea markets...



It would have stunning architectural details...


I would find a large antique armoire to keep all my precious vintage dresses and shoes...
it would be located in the 6ième arrondissement...

And, of course, there would be lots of touches of pink!


with some lovely French notebooks to write my ideas and inspirational thoughts in...


And a few cute pups!




There's nothing wrong with dreaming a bit, non?

What is YOUR dream? Please share!

I too dream of living in Paris. From there I would visit Italy frequently where I would learn to cook delicious italian food. I would shop in corner markets and entertain all my new french friends. I would speak fluent french and italian and I would be tall and beautiful and the envy of all who are chic.

My dream is to have a townhouse in DC and totally gut it and redo it the way I would like. I would love to live that DC power woman lifestyle! LOVE YOUR DREAM! I could definitely come visit!

LOVE this post. Took me away, to my favorite place in the world - the 6th in Paris! We are Parisien soul sisters:) The only thing I would add is a photo of a cafe sipping amazing wine/champagne - w/ my man and precious pup of course.

You and I BOTH. I would love to go to Paris and live there, even for a little while. The first picture looks like it belongs in my future dream house.

How totally awesome!

Heavenly! Although I doubt I'd get much writing done in an apartment like that, in a city like that!

Superbes images!
Mon rêve... un vignoble en Toscane avec une vue imprenable, spectaculaire sur le Val d'Orcia... pourquoi pas! Me semble que l'inspiration pour écrire viendrait toute seule.

p.s lisez-vous le français?
