friends in the city

bonjour ma chere amis, ça va? it’s been awhile and i hope you’re winding down your summer. i’m working in paris right now for a few weeks and am staying in a beautiful apartment i’d love to share with you.

it’s not only gorgeous but i’d like to introduce you to who’s behind it.

when i’m in town i stay with my friends Paris Perfect. i say friends because staying at their flats is truly like having a friend in the city. one of the things i’m working on while in town is interviewing some of my favorite people who make the city great. i know you’ll love the founder, Madelyn Willems and she’s going to be one of the first interviews i’ll be posting.

not only does she have exquisite taste, but the apartments are completely updated with all the modern conveniences yet she’s kept the charm of a traditional paris apartment whenever possible. (i adore these pressed flowers that she got at the paris flea market above).

the kitchen has everything from a traditional and convection oven to a dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine (not to mention they’re stocked with a welcome bottle of wine, milk and oj)!

the bathrooms are completely renovated with spectacular state of the art tiles and fixtures (again, not to mention, heated towel racks, washer and dryer, and their own line of delicious smelling soap, shampoo and conditioner)!

i’m staying in the Beaujolais, which is a two bedroom that sleeps 6 people (there’s a pullout sofabed in each apartment). it features two bathrooms so there’s plenty of room and privacy.

as we learn more about Madelyn i’ll share some of her story with you from how she got started to what she has planned for the future. as an american it probably hasn’t been an easy road for her, especially dealing with the bureaucracy of paris renovating 90 apartments! she is truly a force to be reckoned with and someone i admire greatly for her perseverance, dedication and attention to detail.

et alors, i have clients in the morning and it was hard enough tearing myself out of bed today (yes she even has her own line of butter soft sheets) so i better get to bed.

more coming soon, but for now, bonne nuit!

    Truly hard to get up especially since it’s getting chilly in the mornings!

    It’s been a while since we visited, Claudia, but I think of you often. This apartment looks so wonderful. If it were not that you are in the most beautiful city in the world, I can see how you would want just luxuriate in this lovely environment; however, an entire world of gorgeous awaits you as soon as you set foot outside your door.

    We are just back from an opera festival in Germany and passed through Paris on our way to and from. I didn’t even tell my family and friends we were passing through since I didn’t have time to stay, but it felt so strange not to be staying.

    Enjoy your stay. Looking forward to the interview.

    Cheers, M-T
