Greetings from the City of Lights! I am here with my hubby John to attend the Maison & Objet Home Fashion Showcase, and we couldn’t be having a better time eating, drinking, sightseeing and shopping our way through this magnificent city! Although the weather has been a bit dreary at times, that hasn’t stopped us from taking in all that Paris has to offer. Also a blast meeting one of my Chicago client’s at the flea market to find goodies for her new home. I am so excited to bring the best of European chic back to the U-S of A for my clients and showroom!
Here is a look inside what we have been up to…
Hotel Plaza Athenee…our amazing hotel! So Paris chic. Lavish glam to the max! The Gallerie and Night Club were elegant and happening. The Dior Spa and Fitness Center was one of my favorite haunts during my stay. Fitness was much sought out after foie gras intake daily.
Beautiful nighttime at our lovely hotel with the twinkling lights of the Tour Eiffel in the background. There is an ice skating rink in the courtyard of the hotel with children skating daily to the tunes of french music.
Clignancourt Flea Market…I was like a kid in a candy store even though I have visited many times….
My client and I trying to wrangle best prices while amusing the crowd
Vanves Flea Market…another endless world of treasures!
The main attraction of our trip, Maison & Objet Home Fashion Showcase. Five days of the most amazing home furnishings and decor in the world! What is it about Paris that makes everything so oo-la-la?
Check out these chairs…j’adore!
A few little treats from Laduree to end the perfect day in our hotel …These are mostly gifts I swear!
