Friday French Lesson: Macaroons (big surprise there!)

Though this p√Ętisserie, Theurel & Thomas, is located in Mexico they specialize in French Macaroons (as you can very well gather from these photos). Not only do their colorful macaroons look heavenly but the store itself is lovely. I am always falling for beautiful furniture painted white, so this decor definitely speaks to me. With the all white surfaces and pops of colorful (edible) items this store must be a joy to enter!

Friday French Lesson: Gorgeous Home

I have been so busy that it has been hard to come up with a good French Lesson for today, but this house is wonderful. The moment I see a beautiful French home (like the one below) I begin to dream about being there. This home is especially easy to picture oneself in!

Learn French:

Kitchen- Cuisine

Bathroom- Salle de Bain

Terrace- terrasse

Cafe…

Daydreaming about sitting in front of a cafe in Paris such as this one below, sipping tea and munching on a hot and tender croissant while watching the city wake up and come to life.

Friday French Lesson: Merci

Merci (thank you) is the store to go to in Paris, France. Located in a former fabric factory on the edge of The Marais District this 16,ooo sq. foot “general store” was founded by Marie-France and Bernard Cohen. The store’s merchandise is comprised of everything and anything- an assortment of the eclectic and unexpected. From vintage furniture, household linens and used books to flowers and classic clothing. It’s a place where you can pick up tin picnic plates, a YSL classic, an African Violet, and clay-bead chandelier or disposable plates made of sugar pulp. The best part is 100% of Merci’s profits go to children’s charities in Madagascar.
