Paris’ Prettiest Cafe

Ah, Le Nemours.  Paris’ prettiest cafe, conveniently located just beside the Louvre, guarding the pathways and gardens of the Palais Royal.  In the summer this place is packed with tourists and locals alike, both on the stunning column-lined terrace and in the equally beautiful and quintessentially French interior.  I was dubious about the quality of their food – any cafe this cute is usually horrendously bad – but I have to say, the delicious chevre sandwich I had here was one of my all time favorites.  It’s a pretty picture-perfect place to grab a midday snack and glass of wine in between a long day of museums and shopping in the 1st arrondissement.

Rainbow over the Eiffel Tower

It has been a rainy mess in Paris these last few weeks, with rainstorms popping up nearly every day, punctuated by brief bits of gorgeous sunshine.  It’s certainly putting a kink in the picnic-ing plans, but on the plus side, when it brings moments like this it’s hard to be unhappy!

Lovers in Paris

The great thing about the French is that they don’t see passion and love as something that has to be kept private, and they happily and proudly put their passion on display anywhere life takes them.  It’s beautiful and inspiring to watch, and it’s quite contagious.  Being in Paris just makes you want to pull your loved one close, which means you can find sweet, intimate moments like this all over the city.  Lovers in a Paris Garden

Paris Pastels

Ile de la Cite on the Seine River in Paris

I love the pastel color palette of Paris on a sunny day.  Light yellows, soft greens, baby blues, antique browns, and weathered ivories.  I call them “map colors” and that palette inspired the design of this website and my entire brand.  It’s so calming, peaceful, and beautiful.
