Many of you know that I am a frequent Paris visitor. Yet I am a pretty bad source when it comes to good hotel recommendations in Paris. Why? Well because I have something like a second home in Paris. Traveling is perfect and staying in hotels is grand too. But nothing beats a little ‘chez soi’ in Paris, right? So here are just a few peeks of my home away from home.

Since I am not living all the time in Paris, the home has its own style and vignette. I helped styling bits and pieces, but it is important to me to keep it personal and individual for the actual dweller there. The colour palette is pretty obvious. Teal and various shades of turquoise mix with dashes of yellow and orange. It is a pretty warm and cheerful colour combination.

Like all rented places this one has its shortcomings too. The flooring is an abomination and the wall paint is difficult to say the least. But life is rarely about perfection. It is about compromises and making the best out of it. The most important fact is that it is cosy and a lovely home. That’s all what counts.

Some aspects, however, I have copied from Munich. The latest addition is the Smood mattress, which I also have in Munich. I love to sleep on this mattress and the best solution was to have it in Paris too. Which is what I did. It even feels more like home now. And no hotel bed can beat that! I also have bits and pieces from my various design trips. For example, I added the Wing chair in yellow from the Spanish design brand Actiu. To keep warm I brought back the blue Loom blanket from Muuto.

Last but not least I also have some more important facts for a happy home: plants, good music and coffee. In Paris I have my coffee ritual too which is French Press of course served in some favorite coffee cups from Studio Arhoj. A few sturdy succulents are being taken care of with my cute Xala watering can and a record player takes care of the good vibe. What else can you wish for at home away from home?

    I am so jealous now that I can hardly go back to my work 🙂
    Having a second tiny home in Paris is like a dream!

      I admit it is rather charming. And it allows you to experience Paris from a non-touristy point of view which is the best.

    Hej da, zaboravila sam da ti kažem da sam još pre neki dan, na trenutak na onoj slici sa gramofonom pomislila da je moj stan ahah. 🙂
