A Frenchic restaurant: “le train bleu”

Before Christmas I went to eat at a fantastic place: le restaurant Le train bleu in Paris at the train station Gare de Lyon. As soon as you enter the place you feel like travelling in a train enjoying the food in a majestic décor. I do not need to write more….just enjoy the pictures!

The Frenchic look of the month: January 2016

The Frenchic look of the month“: this is  a new category I am starting this year!
Every month I will present you a personal outfit. I do not have a wardrobe “à la Carrie Bradshaw” but seriously… how many women have? And to be honest I do not care because I want this blog to reflect who I am, what I like, what inspires me.

This month I would like to focus on this great “bleu marine” sweater dress I bought on sales at H&M. It is simple, not to tight, not to big and very comfy!

On the pictures I wear it with a dress but you can also wear it with slim jeans.

I like the round shape on both sides which makes it more feminine and elegant.

A Frenchic artist: Claire Basler

Finally it is Saturday! It is cold outside but the sun is shining…
While starting the day with coffee, jazz music on and surfing on Pinterest I have just discovered the French artist, Claire Basler and I totally fell in love with her work!

Claire draws and paints mostly flowers, trees in a very romantic way. She bought a Château, Le Château de Beauvoir, and renovated it in a French chic but very personal way. Her wall paintings in Le Château are majestic! Enjoy the pictures (from http://www.clairebasler.com)

As I like to draw and paint flowers and trees as well the work of Claire Basler is definitely a great source of inspiration for me. I have ordered her book and will keep an eye with her exhibitions…

A Frenchic place to visit: L’Opéra Garnier

When you come out of the metro station you are immediately overwhelmed by the majestic Opéra de Paris also called Palais Garnier as the building is imposing not only because of its size but also because of the golden roof sculptures!

It was built between 1862 and 1875 by order of Emperor Napoleon III and designed by the French architect Charles Garnier….which explains the name….

It is a little bit dark inside and then difficult to take pictures but it does not matter because all the lights illuminate the beautiful staircases.

OPERA 7The theatre is just splendid with its beautiful red velour chairs and amazing ceiling paintings.

This is really a Frenchic place to visit!
Enjoy your weekend!
