Last Night I Dreamt of Paris

I did. It was lovely. I think I was lost somewhere in the Marais and just wandering around. Much better than my more recent dreams of being chased and killed thanks to the book I’m reading. I awoke and felt like looking around at French interiors and remembered that always carefully curated The Paris Apartment boutique.  Chock full of magnificent examples of Parisian style, both old and new. Check out some of these finds!

Lovely lucite chairs blending old style with new materials.

Some days I really think an ornate headboard like this would suit me.

Classic chairs and even more classic stripes.


Double amazeballs.

I am almost blind from the insane beauty of these antique doors!!!!! Can you imagine getting to put these in your home???

Lucite hardware and the coolest little phone there ever was. This out styles my Crackberry by tenfold.

That bench needs a home with me. So do those dining chairs.

A little Marie Antoinette ring tray. J’adore.

I could not love the note from Marilyn preserved in this tray any more! Love her.

With catalogs pouring into our mailboxes for holiday shopping, sometimes you get some you’ve never gotten before (thanks for the influx of baby catalogs US Postal System- I get it, I’m 31, I should have a BABY). Anyways, the other day I got the Chiasso catalog and I think maybe once before at an old address I had gotten it, but I had forgotten about them. To my surprise there were some killer items in there I had to share with you!

Large, stylish and only $55- this mirror is a steal!
