Pleasure is Paris’s Raison d’Être; it is known for its famous buildings and works of art, its chic fashion scene and its modern literary, artistic, and intellectual ideals, and is a must for anyone wishing to experience the best of both contemporary and age old European culture.  Paris is named after a group of people called Parisii. They built a small village on an island in the middle of the Seine River about two thousand years ago. This island is called Ile de la Cite. It is where Notre Dame located. Today around eight million people live in the Paris area.

Paris is called the City of Lights. It is an international fashion centre and what stylish women are wearing in Paris will be worn by women all over the world. We all know that fashion influences home & decor, so when a woman in Paris chooses a beautiful rich red scarf to wear, in one way or another she’s influencing that red wall we’re putting in our dinning room or the red pillows we’re adding as an accent to our space.

Ernest Hemingway once said “Paris is a holiday, which always stays with you”. Taking the opportunity to visit Paris and experience it is something that will provide you inspirations to last a lifetime.  There’s something magical about the city that quickly forms this ever lasting love.

Shades and light in Paris are constantly in a unique game, at night and in the afternoon, at any time of the year. Light can fill a space small or large with the sun reaching its very depths, however it can quickly all disappear in a dense fog, creating for us a surprising medieval atmosphere.

We often see designers taking the influences of light and architecture and bringing them into the spaces their designing. There is never a loss for beauty when you’re dealing with the City of Love!  Find an image that inspires you and make it work. Take various tones, architectural influences & pops of colour to create you own love affair with Paris.
