City of Light

If you were able to go on with the weekend in a per-usual fashion, I envy you. As soon as I heard the news break on Friday afternoon about the evil and horrifying attacks in Paris, I felt a knot in my stomach. Dinner cancelled. Eyes glued to the television. Appetite lost. It was, needless to say, a sickening situation that made me mourn for a city that is the epitome of all things chic and a beacon of light. Sadly, the whole world seemed dark.

Today, I feel it fitting to showcase one of my favorite Parisian apartments by Frederic Mechiche photographed by Jean-Francois Jaussaud in Elle Decor. It is a bold apartment, classic in taste and striking in its aesthetic. After all, that is exactly how Paris and the whole world should react against evil- bold and striking. Keep praying for Paris, for peace, and for a world that believes in loving one another above all.
