Visualizing an apartment in Paris...


I've been trying to imagine what our future apartment in Paris will look like. Fingers crossed we'll be able to snatch up something similar to a classic Haussmann style number with charming features and ornamentation like an iron balcony, chevron patterned parquet floors, creamy cornice moulding, piercing light... and a view... you know, something simple and low key like that ;) 

I took these photos from a friend's apartment last November, he lives in the 10th arrondissement. I swoon over his place whenever we visit. My family even stayed there a couple of years may have set my expectations a bit high, we'll see...


  1. Catherine, if you are going to dream...dream BIG!! The photos are a great goal to reach...once you find this little charmer...don't forget to invite this american friend over♥

    1. I love that Laurie! and of course you'll most certainly be invited to come visit :)

  2. Oh, I'm so happy to find you from Little Things Thursday! This apartment looks beautiful and just as I would imagine a Paris apartment to look. Good luck with your move and your search. I'll be back!
