Ahhh, April in Paris – what’s not to love? Ever since Jeanne from the blog I Dream Of mentioned her plans to visit the City of Lights, we’ve been dreaming of a Parisian shopping trip. The last time we were there, we had an amazing day in the Marais so we thought we’d give Jeanne our short list of fabulous design stores just in case…
A visit to The Collection is a must for their wonderful collection of wallpaper and giant wall stickers – don’t know if they ship rolls back to the States so bring an extra trunk for packing!
Luka Luna is not much from the outside but once inside, it’s a treasure trove of fun and whimsical home accessories.
While many think the concept store Merci is a must-see (and it is quite the store!), we loved Fleux which has two stores on rue Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie. The mix of beautifully designed furniture and stylish elements is sure to please and who wouldn’t want this key chain as a souvenir?
With so much to see in the Marais, Jeanne might just want to skip a long lunch and pick up a jambon beurre at the oldest boulangerie in Paris – which happens to be in the Hotel du Petit Moulin, a boutique hotel decorated by none other than Christian Lacroix.
And with all the walking around, a dinner on the rooftop of Printemps at Deli-cieux to watch the sun set over the Seine and toits mansardés is a wonderful way to end the day. Jeanne, if you’re reading this, we’d love to be your tour guides!
