Obsessed / HAMMERED SILVER CABINETS

20.12.12

 
 

 
I have been obsessed with this image I found on Pinterest.  The idea of hammered silver + marble is so delicious.  Even though the photo was taken by ELLE Decor, it took some digging to find out that it was custom-designed by cutting edge Parisian designer / architect Jean-Louis Deniot.   Bonus: he's hot.

PARIS - La Maison Champs Elysées



Just steps from Les Champs-Elysées, this understated hotel was recently refurbished by uber-modernist fashion designer Martin Margiela.  A black & white color scheme dominates the interior with a nod to the designer's sense of humour apparent in some trompe l'oeuil effects and unexpected pops of color.  You'll need to make reservations far in advance, it is over-taken by fashionistas during fashion week.

PARIS - Chez Janou Bistrôt

19.12.12

I never miss a chance to visit Chez Janou when I am in Paris.  Its deception as just-another-Paris-bistrot is part of its charm - the rest can be attributed to, well, its charm.  Always bustling and full of energy, it never fails to deliver amazing French cuisine at an affordable price.  The friendly staff always makes sure your wine glass is full, and who can resist the choccolate mousse that is served in a giant tub.  Chez Janou is a Paris staple and is even a hot spot for the fashion crowd.  Who knew?
