it’s about to go down



hi guys, i got my ticket today, so it’s game on. i have no choice but to make it happen now :) i have to run and pick up some friends from the airport. before i go i’m stopping by to add some resources and keeping notes and say hello.


the great news is alyssa is coming and sharing the apartment with nancy, genevieve and me from the 9th to the 27th.

april is notoriously crazy busy in paris and this year is no exception. needing a 3 or 4 bedroom isn’t helping but these are a few we’re working on:


this one’s pretty loud but i still like it somehow




we’ll have to see where we end up. so again, this post is notes and another work in progress. one of my clients wants to visit a textile mill and another wants to shop for old books and papers, ephemera and handwritten letters. luckily these are some of my favorite things so i’ll be researching a bit on that. right now i’m off to the airport. have a great night and if you can come, you’re still invited!

for those who are coming, if you don’t want to take a taxi, reserve a shuttle:

hi again. i’m back and my friends are all tucked in.

these are notes on a side project i’m putting together. it’s a story including these women:


Alix from


Elisabeth from


Toma from


Heather from


and Rebecca from

we’re supposed to meet up for an article that may or may not happen for travel and leisure. either way it got me in touch with these unique women who are all experts in all different fields.


coincidentally, an incredible couple of photographers wrote inviting me to shoot of a day just cruising around together. i was thrilled of course and blown away. i’m trying to make it all happen whether t&l goes for it or not.


that’s the thing about paris. sometimes i want to make myself to go somewhere else, but it keeps drawing me back. there is talk of spain this summer so maybe i’ll get my latina on a little.

ok that’s it. below are tomorrow’s notes.

bon nuit mes amis!

giving in to my weakness


why is it that i feel guilty when i blog? like i should be doing other things. like work work and more work!


well truth be told i wish this was my work, it’s my favorite place to be, discovering your blogs, amazing sites, creative minds and well, getting to travel through infinity at any given moment.


truth is i have a lot to do cause the paris trip is coming up and i’m trying to make tons of things happen at once.


should i get into it? probably not right now so i’ll make this post a working one, to save my notes on how it’s all goin’ down. if, god willing, it even does.


so it will be evolving. geez, i see how much i already have to label! one of the projects besides hosting clients is working on a book! that’s right, i said it! it’s about real apartments in paris and we’ll be going behind a lot of apartment doors.


i guess what still fascinates me about paris apartments is that they have that je ne sais quoi. ok not all, but so many have it with so little effort. the above and below are just from a random craigslist swap for paris/ny.


so is this one


i’m looking for a 3 bedroom apartment cause 4 of us will be sharing it off and on between the 9th and 27th.



pretty deamy


i love this linen trend with the box that’s ever evolving.


yum, these wide ones really get me! this is what i mean about effortless. these rooms speak volumes with next to nothing in them! then again there is that ever present view out of the iron out the window. there’s some kind of magic in that…


i’ll keep an eye out for these linens while i’m there. ok back to it for moi! mwah to vous!

oh and ps, the flights are looking really good today! via cheapoair.



just heard from my other clients, a family, and they’re confirmed so now i have to bite the bullet and really go. besides, this is madame’s wish list: a bed, mirror, ship chandelier, linen, linens, sideboard, chest, small tables! how could i resist? it’ll be great to see paris again. judging from the solid hotel and apartment bookings, paris will never suffer from a lack of admirers who keep coming back for more. guilty!
