The Paris Apartment

Claudia is a trailblazer in the "Paris Apartment" Decor style. Around the time that shabby became chic I discovered Claudia and The Paris Apartment. I remember when she had a store in NYC and I loved looking in the window. A few years later I found her again and bought her book, The Paris Apartment: Romantic Decor on a Flea-Market Budget and wanted to move into one of those wonderful rooms. And then I found her again recently through the blogs! One of my dreams was to go on one of Claudia's fabulous shopping trips to Paris but there was never a good time. I moved out of NYC, went back to school (which meant constant studying and no job which meant no money) and started another life. I am so excited that this is going to be the year!

Claudia decorates rooms that make me swoon and also takes the most spectacular photos of Paris that make me yearn for another trip to the City of Lights - in fact, if all goes well, I will be in Paris avec Claudia in May :-)

I particularly love this interview with her from NY Magazine a couple of years ago. And she is spot on, you either have it or you don't. Clearly she has IT. Oh and her blog is here. Stop by and say hello. It's wonderland.

Not only can you shop with Claudia in person, you can shop with her online. Check out these fabulous notebooks or a pretty moire covered French notebook!
