Will be adding more vintage stock to the shop this afternoon. Stay tuned!
We’ve been busy around here with THIS, but we wanted to stop by and share a few photographs from our trip to Paris last year. We have a few more places and spaces to share from the trip and hope to add them to the blog shortly. In the meantime we’ve added some of our favorite photographs we took around the city below if you’d like to see:
Beautiful book store and doorways in St. Germain.
Loved this antique shop we strolled by on our way to do some shopping. Unfortunately it was closed but we did manage to get this nice shot from the window. Those antique globes are amazing!
Staircase in Nissim De Camando.
Fruits and vegetables at the market. Although we ate out for most meals (with the exception of Daniel making a few delicious breakfasts), we still had fun photographing the various goods in the markets.
Place Des Vosges, in one of our favorite districts.
Bus going by at the intersection by our rental apartment.
Eiffel Tower peeking out the back. We loved the buildings in the area. So much character!
Classic cafe chairs.
We came here for dinner our first night. It’s a French/Moroccan restaurant with the most amazing French Onion Soup and Crème brûlée! The food and service was excellent and the owner was very friendly! We’ll definitely be making this a regular visit when we’re here.
So many dessert and pastry shops.
Staircase in our apartment.
Paris at night. We spent quite a lot of late nights wandering the streets and couldn’t believe how dead it was! No people out after 10pm, but also no restaurants open either. So strange to see in quite a large city. Midnight in Paris is indeed magical!
From the top of Montparnasse. Not sure if you were allowed to bring drinks outside the bar area, but we did anyways and enjoyed the view with a few glasses of wine!
Notre Dame at night. During the first night we decided to walk back to the apartment after dinner instead of getting a taxi. We grabbed a bottle of red wine to go and wandered the streets taking in the sights the which we had all to ourselves at night!
More to come…
E. Dehillerin has been selling kitchen, cooking and baking supplies in Paris since the 1820′s and has an impressive stock of cooking pots, utensils and pretty much any kind of kitchen gadget you can think of. We had originally come here for an oyster shucker and some copper pots but spent quite a while browsing through their inventory.
The extensive collection of copper pots and original antique cabinetry.
Pastry tins in all different shapes and sizes.
The store was packed from floor to ceiling with products and utensils stored in rustic baking tins and hardware boxes.
More baking goods.
Cute little tart tin. We wish we could have bought them all!
E. Dehillerin is located between the 1st and 2nd arrondissement and is a perfect place to visit on a lazy weekend. We suggest stopping by Rue Montorgueil for some crepes or fondue while you’re there!
Coutume Cafe was one of our stops in the St Germain district in Paris. The cafe has been around for a couple of years and we liked the food and coffee so much that we even debated doing back again for brunch or a latte to-go a few times during the trip.
One of the best lattes we’ve had!
The interior is a nice contrast of modern with rustic elements like raw walls and dark wood flooring.
Black Rye Sandwich with Fresh Goat Cheese and Vegetables.
Love these pyrex beaker water pitchers.
Buckwheat Pancakes with Smoked Salmon and Mustard Dill Sauce.
If you’re looking for a place to eat in Paris, Coutume Cafe is a great spot for brunch or to pick up a coffee and snack. We’ll definitely be back!
We visited Conran Shop while in Paris which is a furniture and home accessories shop originally from London which stocks mostly iconic designer pieces for the home. We were impressed by the huge selection and managed to pick up a few things for ourselves while we were there.
Classic Eames molded plastic chairs with a variety of bases.
Huge selection of housewares and kitchen products we had fun browsing through.
Love this “Penguin Donkey” magazine rack by Isokon Plus.
Modern hourglasses in different shapes and sizes.
A selection of chairs and furniture pieces.
We’ll be sharing some of our finds from the trip shortly but in the meantime still have a lot more Paris posts coming your way so stay tuned!
