switching it up

wow paris has been a whirlwind to say the least. we’ve been up one side and down the other. between the fleas and the maison objet, i’ve been working with madelyn of paris perfect to check out some of her other apartments and move around a bit. we spent the past couple days in this magnificent flat near the bon marche. it has two beautiful bedrooms and all the trimmings we girls could ask for. they call it the valencay, and it’s very dramatic with lots of color and style in a fantastic location:  Valencay Paris apartment rental

but as fate would have it, the apartment was booked for the second part of our trip so we’re switching over. we all seem to be the sorts who don’t mind packing up treking to another place and i must say, our nomad spirit paid off. we are in the most gorgeous place yet, the musigny. this one is near the louvre and the montorgeuil market and has everything we could ask for from pretty bedrooms to le grand salon and impeccable baths.

i could go on with mere words but i’ll let the pics tell the story. i think i’ve hit my daily limit of verbage and better hit the hay, tomorrow is another jour including the blogger meet up at deux maggots. if you’re in town, please do come! more soon!

    These bedroom pictures are absolutely yummy. Each one looks like you could just fall and sink into a dream-state instantly. And I love the cream-colored living room with all of the mirrors; great usable space, but pleasing to the eye. Good pics!

    The downside of living in Paris is that I already have somewhere to sleep. That said, I really want to pass time in some of these lovely apartments.
