Parisian Pinterest Appartement

Ever since I was tiny, I’ve dreamt of luxuriating my life away in a 1920’s Parisian apartment.  Ideally Coco Chanel’s iconic flat, looking out at the Tour de Eiffel and dreaming up ways to creatively revolutionize the world…but c’est la vie.

Since I am neither in Paris drunkenly writing in the corner of a candlelit cafe, reading poetry on the steps of the Sacre Coeur, or painting in front of the Louvre, I am doing so virtually – in the Pinterest world, of course!

You can follow my boards such as ‘One day in a 1920’s Parisian, Maine house by the sea’ here, Anjou Pinterest, or sigh with me at my virtual dream flat below.

Have I mentioned how I still think about the pain au chocolat I had for breakfast everyday, or the intimate Dali museum I ducked into to avoid the rain, or the instant nostalgia I felt when I caught the Eiffel Tower sparkling upon crossing a bridge over the Seine?

I took these photos just moments after it stopped raining on a winter day in Montmatre, Paris.  2004.

    wow! I really like “just-after-the-rain” photos… makes me want to be in Paris right now! :-)

    • I knoooow! I want to hop on a jet so badly….though I’m not gonna lie; mostly because of the pastries ;)

        yeah, don’t tell me… I’ve been to Paris once only, but it was enough to totally and utterly fall in love with all the little boulangerie and patisserie… I always wanted to buy EVERYTHING I could see there :-)
