Aah Paris... The city of light. There are few places as inspiring. There is something so magical (and quintessentially French) about views over tiled rooftops and neat chimney rows with the sound of bustling streets below.
Huge wooden doors with brass knockers take you from cobbled lane ways into elegant apartments with their soaring ceilings and romantic balconies. Parisian interiors beautifully balance antique and modern design reflecting this historic cosmopolitan city. Topiary spirals make a big impact when planted in nineteenth century cast iron urns framing an entryway.
1. Outdoor life in Paris
This petite Parisian balcony is the perfect place to watch this lively city awaken, with a coffee and croissant of course! A simple garden setting is all you need to recreate this look.
Behind high stone walls are the private cobblestone courtyards of Parisian homes. Potted topiaries are perfectly manicured in classic French planters.
2. Parisian style living spaces
A potted lime sits on this crisp white marble bench top and is planted in an antique biot jar - a clever way to add some greenery if your home is sans jardin.
3. Sleeping in Paris
Parisian bedrooms - simple, restrained but with a luxurious feel achieved by mixing old with new and using contrasting colors. An antique chair and Louis Philippe mirror are stunning choices in this white space.
Mustard-colored wallpaper is a bold backdrop for this simple gilded antique mirror. It's aged frame adds antiquity and texture. The powder room is a fun place to go all-out with color and surprise your guests.
