{home inspiration: a paris apartment}

paris-header
curtains-chevron

. . . oftentimes, on evening walks, love to stop by the bookstore for a few glossy magazines, always in search of inspiration, but has been far too long since there was a space that overwhelmed with loveliness like this parisian apartment -- the glimpses of perfectly ornate balconies and streams of soft, gauzy light, the yards upon yards of shimmery taupe drapery and beautifully time-worn chevron floors, and best of all, in paris . . .
