Happy Wednesday everyone!
I hope this belated post finds you all well, and enjoying your summer days?
Now back from our wonderful few days in Paris, I hit the ground running this week with a current work design project and I can't believe we are half way through the week already!
There is nothing like a few days away to top up on inspiration, and of course, there is no lack of inspiration in beautiful Paris!  

Leaving my usual camera behind this trip, here are a few of my iPhone snaps, which some of you who follow me on Instagram @sophiahomelifestyle 
will recognise.  

Paris for me inspires in so many ways…..

The gorgeous patisserie, and sweet treats…

The elegant architecture….

The strolls through beautiful parks….especially the stunning Jardin du Luxembourg...

The hidden courtyards and squares….with Place des Vosges my absolute favourite.

The romance….love and padlocks on every bridge!

The delightful cafés and coffee break stops...

The refreshing mid afternoon Citron Pressé…

The wonderful restaurants….delicious french onion soup and a glass of rosé anyone?

Shopping heaven!

Endless inspiration, with beauty and style at every corner…not forgetting the stunning choice of galleries and museums.  Paris never disappoints.
A special place that I never grow tired of, and I can not wait to return for my next Parisian fix!


Look in again soon, for some kitchen garden updates and healthy summer recipes we have been enjoying here at home, that I would love to share with you!

Thank you so much for popping by 'Sophia Home' and wishing you a wonderful rest of the week, whatever you have planned...

  2. Beautiful Paris! Your photos make me want to go back - if only it was a 2 hour journey instead of the 24 hours it takes to get there from Australia! Thank you for sharing.

  3. Hi Sophia,

  4. Beautiful photos Sophia. The weather looked good too.
    I know Paris well, but can I ask.....where is the next to last photo taken with the wickerwork looking igloo?
    Thank you xx

    1. Thank you! That last photo you mention is of the Hermes flagship boutique store….well worth a visit! In fact, I am thinking of doing a blog post just on this fabulous store, so will share soon!

      Have a lovely week,
