A Paris retreat...

Located on one of my favourite Paris squares, Place des Vosges, is this beautiful feminine and romantic apartment. Once home to a famous mistress to nobility everything about this residence says 'you are in Paris'. This is an apartment I would escape to for the weekend....

Beautiful fabrics, wonderful textures, antiques and books fill the apartment giving each of the rooms the most wonderful character and detail.

The exquisite bedroom with its views over the blue slate rooftops of the square.

Looking down the hallway to the powder room...I love the contrast of the dark wall and the timber parquet floor.

I would invite you over for some afternoon tea and macaroons.

Just step outside to explore the fashionable galleries surrounding the square or just stop for a moment and enjoy the beauty of the gardens....Ax
