:: Bonjour Paris ::
This week's blog is a special one as it comes all the way from Paris! Our co-founder, Molly is currently traveling in Europe so we insisted she share some of her favorite spots she has found. It comes as no surprise that top on her list was to hunt down some of Paris' best home stores. After pulling her away from a glass of Bordeaux and plate of formage, Molly compiled her favorite Parisian organization inspiration complete with photos! Enjoy the journey!
The first stop on her list was Colette. This photo alone tells you that the clean lines drew her in!
Besides the fact that they have an unmatchable array of clothing and beauty products, Colette also has some amazing home gadgets. This notebook was one of Molly's favorites. The waterproof outside zips open to reveal lined paper. If you carry a bag that also holds your water, or have a tendency to be a bit accident prone, this notebook is sure to do the trick! This particular pattern was Molly's favorite, but if you go to the site, there are plenty more to choose from.
Next on her list is Merci. Think Anthropologie meets ABC Carpet and Home and you've got Merci. Besides having an adorable cafe inside, this store carries some of the best storage pieces! The linen bags are so soft you will never want to see a plastic bag again!
This cylindar basket particularly caught her eye. There were a variety of sizes in the store that could hold anything from children's toys to office supplies. And to top it off, it's made out of recycled materials, washable, AND folds down to nothing for easy storage. Amoreux!!
On her way to Musee D'orsay, Molly was completely taken with Les Arts Decoratifs (also known as the Decorative arts museum).
The NEAT girls are always into suggesting a good tray to put your keys when you enter your home so you never lose them. At this museum, Molly thought the "piece de resistance" were these trays by Clara Von Zweigberg. Lucky for us, you can find them at Design Within Reach :)
Have a favorite place that steals your heart when abroad? Share it here in our comments! Au revoir!
