C'est trop beau!

Because I have a Frenchy-sounding name, I've had people assume that I'm French my entire life. (I'm not, but that's okay.) This may or may not be the cause of my resulting Francophilia -- I love the French language, Parisian architecture, the fashion, the FOOD, oh man, the FOOD... Sadly, the one and only trip I've had to Paris was a little National Lampoon's European Vacation in nature, and what's worse, my years of French classes are slipping away from me... Thank god for Chrome's auto-translate feature, otherwise I might not have been able to navigate this awesome French decor site, Du Côté de Chez Vous. The ladies at Desire to Inspire recently posted about the site, and I found myself lost in the pics they shared. What really won me over were the shots taken from Du Côte's "petits espaces" section. After all, when you're in an urban center as old as Paris, you're going to find ways to live in the tiniest of spaces -- but, being French, you're going to do it with style. Take a look at the pics below, check out Du Côté de Chez Vous (and Desire to Inspire, of course), then kindly please send funds for my "Parisian vacation fund." I promise to take lots of pictures and bring back croissants for everyone.

  1. As a parisian and TAA dweller, I must say Du Côté de Chez Vous is a great source of inspiration, especially when you're looking for videos. But you can also find beautiful things here : http://www.marieclairemaison.com/petitsespaces,200241.asp2

    (by the way, do not hesitate to e-mail me if you need help for translation! :) And please come to Paris so you can do a special subject on french TAA!)

  4. This is really great stuff... I must really say this style can be used in India as well....where people do have tiny homes and would like to incorporate all the stuff.

    Great work..Cheers

  12. Small apartments aren't bad. It's good to live in small apartments sometimes because they're easy to clean and rearrange to whatever you want. It's easy to maintain too.
