I’ve written about many Paris pied-a-terre apartments so it will probably be a little confusing that I’m now writing about a company renting apartments in Paris under the moniker, Pied A Terre. There was a hole in the Paris apartment rental market between traditional Haussmann style places and hot mess expresses on Airbnb that Pied […]

Spring has finally arrived but that means beautiful sunny weather mixed with cold and rainy days. We’ve got you covered if you want to be out and about or hunkered down at home with something to watch or read this weekend. Filmmaker Sofia Coppola doesn’t seem to grant many interviews so I was excited to […]

Cour des Vosges

02 . 13 . 22

While I was working on my posts about the film France and 24 Place des Vosges, I came across a very chic hotel. Cour des Vosges sits at 19 Place des Vosges and is the only hotel with views of the square from every room. The 17th-century historic site is known as the Hôtel de […]

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that you never know what might be behind those large wooden doors in Paris. The last time I stayed in the City of Light, I rented an apartment at 8 rue du Pas de la Mule which happens to sit right next door to 24 Place des Vosges, the location […]

As soon as I saw the trailer for the new film France starring Léa Seydoux, I knew couldn’t wait to see her amazing fashions. France is currently available to stream on Kino Now before it opens to winder steaming release later this month. I watched last night and I think it might be my new […]

Editor’s Note: If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I was dealing with a pretty bad case of food poisoning last week. It began Wednesday evening when I was working on this post. I’m happy to say that I’m finally feeling better and glad to be back at the blog. Last […]

I had a completely different post ready for today and then I saw this apartment in Paris. I was supposed to be in Paris this month but everyone talked me out of an extended trip so I’m having fomo watching everyone else there on Instagram so Paris has already been on my mind. This 538 […]

When I visit Paris, I usually rent an apartment because I tend to stay at least 10 days. But I always keep a list of hotels for recommendations and will be adding the new Château Voltaire to the list when it opens in mid October. It is located in the 1st arrondissement which is quite […]

Another insanely chic auction coming up this fall is A Parisian pied-à-terre curated by Hubert de Givenchy at Christie’s in Paris on 14 September 2021. The “collection of a major international collector” is rumored to be from Philippe Venet, who died at the age of 91 earlier this year and was the longtime partner of […]

In the wrong hands, some Paris apartments can become boring white boxes. In the chic hands of fashion designer Pierre Hardy, his husband Christopher Turnier, and their Italian interior designer Vincenzo De Cotiis, a 17th-century apartment in an hôtel particulier on Île Saint-Louis, became perfection personified. I’m so so in love everything about these interiors […]

Last year felt like it crawled by at a snail’s pace while this year is flying by. I can’t believe it will be July next week. If you’re coming to the city or just looking for new things to see and do, I’ve got you covered. This week, I attended the Member Preview for The […]

I feel like I’m definitely going to have Stendhal Syndrome the next time I go to Paris. For those who aren’t familiar with this illness, it’s is “a psychosomatic condition involving rapid heartbeat, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations, allegedly occurring when individuals become exposed to objects, artworks, or phenomena of great beauty.” Another opening in […]

Sally Perrin of Perrin Paris and Casa Torre Careyes has been back in Paris for a few weeks and I love following along the city as she posts Stories on Instagram. Recently, she posted an art gallery that had taken over an empty hôtel particulier. The group show Grand Ménage put on by Clearing Gallery […]

Paris just opened after lockdown today and Americans are chomping at the bit to go to the City of Light. I usually don’t like to visit Europe in the summer and will probably wait until the fall. That was my plan until I saw the newly unveiled Bourse de Commerce Pinault Collection art venue that […]

It feels like we’ve lost so many wonderful collectors in the last few years. The art and personal treasures from the Paris apartment of artist Pierre Le Tan are up for auction at Sotheby’s this Tuesday and Wednesday. Included in the sale are furniture including the lovely early Louis XV amaranth and varnished bronze commode […]

While many of you are losing your minds on trashy Bridgerton, I’ve moved on to Lupin on Netflix. Lupin is a very original take on the famous French literary character Arsène Lupin starring Omar Sy as the charming Assane Diop who sets out to avenge his father for an injustice that happened 25 years earlier […]

Celine Spring 2021

01 . 06 . 21

I hated the Celine Spring 2021 runway styling but luckily, Hedi Slimane redeemed himself with the Celine Spring 2021 campaign photos. I can’t wait to wear these looks when the weather warms up and model Rianne Van Rompaey has me seriously contemplating letting my hair grow out longer. The spring can’t come soon enough for […]
