by now you’re all pretty aware of my love for paris already — it’s no secret i’m a Francophile through and through. so you can imagine my excitement when i saw that author and designer Eva Jorgensen had a new book coming out all about the creative side of my favorite french city. i’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Paris by Design: An Inspired Guide to the City’s Creative Side, a truly uniquely beautiful book that i’ll be dragging around paris for years to come. it’s such a stunningly designed book and one that really stands out from your typical city guide.

  1. Hey sfgirl! I too am a Francophile! I’ve not been yet, but I am obsessed by what I’ve seen and am planning a trip by end of next year. I’m even considering moving there…so fun! I love everything about it and read everything I can get my hands on about Paris and all of France. I also follow Messy Nessy Chic. She’s been to some fabulous places in Paris that I’d love to see. I will be buyng the Paris By Design book as well. Keep it coming!
