Hello my friends! What a busy week it’s been! After the great trip to the imm Cologne with lots of design inspiration and blogger meet-ups, I headed last Friday to Paris to chase more interior design inspiration at the Maison & Objet (more on this later this week). Moreover, I had the big pleasure to experience Paris as an enchanting winter wonderland: Paris experienced the heaviest snowfalls in years the past weekend!
Most of you know that I spent Christmas and New Year’s in Paris too so I’ve decided to compile a mix of highlight pics to showcase the difference of Paris – with and without snow. Experiencing Paris with a lot of snow is simply magical – I was literally walking around with a big smile on my face. I just couldn’t help it. On every corner there were jolly kids making snowmen and having snowball fights, people taking pictures everywhere and the parks were absolutely full with kids sledging, people walking under the snow, I even saw guys skiing and snowboarding in the park Buttes Chaumont! I love this city!
As this post is a sort of second part of last Monday’s Paris report, I will share again some of my highlights from the last two Paris trips. So if you happen to be in the City of Light anytime soon, make sure to check these out:
- Excellent French food and impeccable service at Le Comptoir de la Gastronomie
- A refreshing walk in the park Buttes Chaumont
- Shopping home accessories, textiles and decoration at Bensimon
- Indulging in the most creative éclairs at L’Éclair de Génie
- Experiencing the plethora of jams, marmalades, honeys at La Chambre aux Confitures
- A stroll through the Rue Mouffetard
- A fresh pain au figue
Voilà! I hope you enjoyed my little virtual tour through Paris and I hope to welcome you again on my blog tomorrow!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that photo above you in the b/w. It’s completely magical.
Well, I have you know that we also experienced the same in London… Winter Wonderland.
Glad you had such an amzing time and glad you got back all right:-)
Hi Igor, lovely to meet you. I’ve been following everyone’s instagram – Cologne sounded amazing and liking your wonderful pictures of Paris 🙂
Must have been magic 😉 I saw pictures from Karin from Bodie and Fou this weekend of them near the Tour Eiffel Amazing as well 😉
Everything looks better under a layer of bright white snow, right? Around here (up north of Paris) lots of shops & the post office were closed today. I love this quiet start of the week! Looks like you had a great weekend!
Such great photos of you and Paris…so magical in the snow!
Wonderful atmosphere Igor, it seems you had wonderful time. But it’s Paris, it’s impossible not to have fun 😉
Paris covered in snow is just as beautiful … keep those photos coming!
Love the pictures. You really DO look happy! Wish I made it to Paris but that just means you’ll have to come to New York next !
Igor how fantastic!!! Paris looks amazing in the snow!! Looks like you had a great time!!
I don’t think I’ve seen one bad photo of the city in the snow! You look like you had an absolute ball – I’m just so bummed we couldn’t have our breakfast 🙁 La prochaine fois, sans faute!! xx
C’est noté mon amie!!! Je t’embrasse!
That first photo says it all, Igor! And I’d look the same way if it were me experiencing Paris in the snow. Looks so stunning! Well, snow or no snow, really. I mean, it’s Paris, right? 🙂
love your pictures Igor and what a fantastic time you had in Paris! I will for sure save all the links you have here so I know exactly where to go when I come visit Paris in 11 months!!
Can’t wait to read up more on your finds from the show too! Will have to compare note from IDS 2013 here in Toronto this weekend!
Happy Monday Mr!
Wonderful. I think I need to go to Paris very soon!
Beautiful photos of Paris and the snow!
You’re so handsome!
I LOVE a frosty white cover over everything… so magical!
Oh thank you – you make me blush:-)
Beautiful pics! The city of Paris should hire you as an official advocate 😉
Hi Igor, love these amazing Paris images. The one of you jumping is fantastic 🙂
Fab snaps, pal. I especially love the one of the waiter and how he is blurred because it brings movement to the shot and brings it to life.
Hello dearest Igor. All of this looks so charming and fairytale-like. I do so need a trip to Paris… has been quite a while.
I love the first pic… the man behind is giving you a curious look… probably thinking he’s one happy guy 😉
Merci my friends!!
Your photos are awesome! Don’t you just love Paris? I’ve never been in winter but judging from your photos it was magical. You’re one lucky guy!
Στο Buttes Chaumont ειχα βρεθει τυχαια, πολύ ομορφο πάρκο. Στην Αθηνα υστερουμε σε αυτο τον τομεα.
