Through the pages… a ray of light

During the weekend I love to start my day by enjoying a cup of coffee and reading newspapers or magazines. There is no rush (generally!) and in the summer I really like the morning sun. So I would like to share my reading from this morning by showing you some photos of two beautiful Parisian apartments “illuminated by a ray of light”!
Il y a une activité que j’apprécie énormément le weekend… c’est tout simplement de boire mon café en lisant quelques magazines. Je profite de la lumière du soleil matinal sans aucun stress et ça c’est top! Je voudrais donc vous partager ma lecture de ce matin en vous montrant quelques photos de deux superbes appartements parisiens “illuminés” par les rayons du soleil matinal!

The first apartment is owned by Mariu de Andreis, founder of Zef, a baby fashion brand. I love the floor, the furniture… well basically everything!
Pictures come from the french magazine  Ideat.

Culturichic: a beautiful exhibition

I like to stay in Paris in July and August as it is a good opportunity to visit museums without queuing for hours! Most parisians are on vacation so it is easier and more pleasant to walk around in Paris. So last month I went to “Le Grand Palais” to see the exhibition called “Jardins” (Gardens) which is a collection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings showing how the garden is a complete work of art. I really enjoyed the botanical prints and books but also the beautiful watercolors “Iris” from Patrick Neu. Here below is a little glimpse of this beautiful exhibition!

J’aime rester à Paris en Juillet et en Août, car c’est une bonne opportunité pour visiter les musées sans devoir faire la queue pendant des heures! La plupart des parisiens étant en vacances, il est plus facile et plus agréable de se promener dans Paris. Donc, le mois dernier, je me suis rendue au «Grand Palais» pour voir l’exposition «Jardins» qui est une collection de peintures, sculptures, photographies, dessins montrant comment le jardin est une œuvre d’art. J’ai vraiment apprécié les estampes et les livres botaniques, mais aussi les belles aquarelles “Iris” de Patrick Neu. Les photos cci-dessous vous donneront un petit aperçu de cette belle exposition!

Le musée de la vie romantique

Last month I discovered one of the cutest museum in Paris: le Musée de la vie romantique. It is a very small and discreet museum, hidden at the end of an alley but so charming! I went there to see the exhibition called “The power of flowers” which was focused on the work of the famous painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté. I then enjoyed a coffee in their cute salon de thé in the middle of the garden! This museum is definitely worth a visit!

Le mois passé, j’ai découvert le musée le plus charmant de Paris, à savoir le Musée de la vie romantique. C’est un petit musée très discret, au bout d’une allée mais tellement charmant! J’ai pu admirer l’exposition “Le Pouvoir des fleurs” de Pierre-Josep Redouté dont je suis une grande fan et ensuite faire une petite pause, à l’ombre, au sein du petit salon de thé. A découvrir absolument!

One Thursday afternoon…

It was just one Thursday afternoon in Paris….
I had the day off….
It was freezing cold but the sun was shining and no matter what Paris is always beautiful…..

First I went shopping at “Les Galeries Lafayette” and found some great lace tops on sale.

Then I visited my favorite bookshop “Galignani” located on Rue de Rivoli. They have beautiful Art books and very interesting History books.
