When I researched for my trip to Paris this Spring at Le Cinq Codet, I knew I would be close to the Eiffel Tower. I always plan a walk to see her sparkle at least once every trip. Since I was starting my trip here, I assumed I would walk over after dinner my first night. I checked into my room and I was given the biggest birthday surprise of my own private terrace and view of the Eiffel Tower. I arrived back in the room after dark after meeting a friend and I walked out onto the terrace to admire this very special view to watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle. I was very happy to share a little preview on stories. Did you know the Eiffel Tower sparkles every hour on the hour for 5 minutes after dark?
Good News! The apartment is painted...finally it is a color palate or black, white, and gold. The walls weren't awful before but now that this place is finally white it makes such a huge difference and I am happier in my own space. I still have a lot of things back in their places which I might be doing some rearranging and hopefully some purging. Once my body stops aching the bathroom and kitchen will get a fresh coat of white too.
When I decided to paint the place white I immediately knew I wanted a gallery wall. I have wanted to hang my own art for quite some time but I just haven't because life gets busy... and it is so hard to choose what will go up on my walls. I have a catalog of thousands of Paris Photographs.
The wall behind the couch will be all black and whites with black frames. Simple but classic Paris. I have narrowed it down to the following. Let me know what you think. Also if anyone has gallery wall tips please comment below.
