" Je vais faire du lèche-vitrines "
If there's one thing I like to do,
besides eat the local cuisine, see the glorious sights
and wondrous architectures of each city.
the side trip would be to do some window-shopping.
and here we were along the 6th arronsiddement of Boulevard St. Germain,
while passing time on the way back to the hotel.
I was literally beginning to get bored by all the walking
as my feet was getting tired already.
It was already passed 10 in the evening and the option
of taking the metro seemed like
a good idea at that time, but then,
considering our safety, plus not being familiar with it.
we took the former instead.
Even when the shops are closed during the night.
The window displays would light up and direct your attention to their merchandise.
I reckon this side of the boulevard sells high end furniture and antiques.
Now me, I like looking at these sorts, as an ex- Interior Design graduate. ^0^
sadly, I didn't got the chance to use my degree.
I can't stop my 'oohs and aahs' whenever there's a cute chair, a vintage chest
or even Starck inspired lamps and chairs.
Suddenly, my agonizing feet seem to be up and going again. ^0^
and anytime this year,
when I do own this white fluffy chaise and this comfy sofa or
this minimalist kitchen motif, I'll let you know. ^0^
and this has got to be my fave,
I love the how the linens are nautical inspired.
Not sure if this is a day bed or a sofa for the little ones.
how about you? found any favorites? ^0^
happy weekend everyone!
