I’ll be in paris in a couple of weeks, so a thought i’d round up all things french this fab friday. low and behold, i stumbled upon this C’est Magnifique Wallpaper from anthropologie, and i may have just accidentally discovered how to finally resolve the fiasco that is my hideous pink & blue bathroom! what if i hung this paper, and accessorized with jet black bath towels trimmed with little black pompoms? kinda kitschy, but oh so Parisian! anyway, i digress…on to embracing my inner francophile!
what is it about ribbons and stripes that instantly conjures up france for me? a fancy ribbon rosette hand embroidered by Tara Badcock at story; and striped pillow by unison; pretty vintage souvenir scarf 50′s Bouquet de Paris from fabrique fantastique; some Vintage Light Blue French Taffeta Ribbon from 6pence; a 1957 Vintage Postcard of The Eiffel Tower from vintage with heart; and these lounging pajamas look quite cozy for curling up after a long day wandering the seine.
maybe i need to skip around the streets of paris, wearing a forage bow tie (for ladies), n’cest pas?
i’m going to need to see woody allen’s midnight in paris before i leave next friday. i hear it’s full of amazing and inspiring paris scenery.
think i might stumble upon some of this in paris? i could be okay with that. ouí! via photographer pia ulin.
this watercolor by director gus van sant just screams ‘paris!’ to me. lillet is a favorite apéritif of mine, so i plan on having quite a few; as well as ingesting some of Ladurée’s famous macarons; i’ve heard much ado about the vélib bicycle rental system in paris, and i think i might like to try that out (via treehugger), since i plan on eating and drinking my way through the city.
