Book review: Paris style

Well hello again, my lovelies. As promised before, a book review is what I have prepared for you now. Just in case you’re wondering, it’s not a new book, but an old, utterly inspiring one, filled with Paris atmosphere and French style and as you could guess it’s Paris style by Angelika Taschen. I found myself flipping through its pages today and couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by the beauty, sophistication and all the chicness I found in the book. Now don’t get me wrong, I had the book in my hands a while ago, but today was like a new wave of inspiration and emotions (I guess books are under ‘every time like the first time’ principle). So, if you’re in need of some French touches in your life or home then Paris style is the book you should stick to: romantic bedrooms, country kitchens and royal, all-golden living rooms – that is, my friends, a dream come true. And if before I said my dream home is a Scandinavian styled place, now I’m not so sure…

The play of the colors in these pictures are making this style even more charming: mixing pale, natural & bold colors it’s not something we can see everywhere. What do you think about this style? Would you go with it in your home?

I hope you enjoyed this tiny review and I’ll see you back here tomorrow! xoxo

    I adore pictures 5, 6 and 9. I love the juxtaposition of the modern elements(furniture and accessories) against the traditional architecture in 5 and 9,and i just love that bed in #6.
