Today I moved into my lovely new apartment near Place des Vosges in the Marais. I woke up at 7am to brave the snow and cold to cross the city and meet the moving guys at my place of storage. It took a few hours but by early afternoon, my 40 boxes of books (amongst other boxes of possessions!) made it through the door of my new home. With the white snow and bluish skies outside, it was even more luminous than I remembered it - and I knew I had made the right choice. This is the first home since the mews house in London (when I lived with my 3 best girlfriends!) where I really feel that there is a lot of good energy in the space, and that makes me excited to come home.
It's littered with cardboard boxes everywhere at the moment, but I wanted to share some glimpses of it in the meantime, so here is a compilation of a few of the agency photos that I first saw online. Let these serve as the Before shots! I'm looking forward to eventually sharing the After. :)
Last but not least - thanks to everyone who participated in the January Giveaway. According to Random Number Generator, the winner is ... #9! UshaJoy, congratulations, and please drop me an email with your mailing address so I can ship you your chocolat chaud à l'ancienne toute de suite !
