So many Choices!

So, for today I couldn't decide between two choice pieces of real estate for us to visit. Both spectacular in their own right. I think the second one is very much my favorite! I don't think I have any complaints about either one!
This bedroom is fit for royalty! So very pretty!

Sumptuous corner piano niche on the Champ de Mars with incredible view of the Eiffel Tower. Exquisitely decorated by Jacques Garcia, this home features a grand reception room with exceptional vistas, a dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom with a bathroom, and a magnificent master suite with a walk-in closet and bathroom. Wonderful condition. Elegant and refined decoration. Air-conditioned

Look at the view from the window! This is all too much for me!

I know I'm a little bit crazy but a pretty bathroom for me could very well be the selling point to make up my mind! I love this!

That silk curtain hanging in the doorway is just stunning, I'm going to have to try to copy this look at my home.
Okay, here is our second option which I think is a bit more what I am looking for (oh, who am I kidding, I'll sleep in the metro station if it means I'm sleeping in Paris)!

Could you just imagine all of us meeting right here for our vacation! I think I'm beginning to be serious about this! I know times are hard right now but we can all look forward to better & brighter times!

I'm a sucker for those beautiful walls! Like a mini Versailles. Those windows! *Sigh*

Rue de Verneuil. In an exceptional building, this is a rare reception apartment in use as a private residence. The courtyard features a private entrance with a grand staircase to the piano area, a hall, a reception room, and a dining room with a four-meter ceiling height. Four bedrooms and a living room. On the ground floor, a huge dining kitchen, a pantry, and a fifth bedroom are found. All of these open to a private garden courtyard. Original fireplaces, parquet floors, and wood panelling

Those doors are spectacular! I don't love the carpet but we can make it work!

Sold! How pretty is this! I have issues, why is it that this image could make my day a little better!?! I'm in awe of the beauty.


Bisou Mon Amis!

  1. Okay, I'll take this one. It has just about everything I need!

  2. Hi Dear Judith,
    Is a Paris apartment on your Christmas list? I hope Santa is good to you! Thanks for your thoughts on my healing...It's coming along but I'm doing some excruciating exercises everyday - I call them torture-cises. A series of 6 arm movements at 30 reps each, three times a day!! Still can only raise my arm half-way, which means I can't take the photos I'd like to take because I can't reach the release button! But it will happen. Take care, my dear.

  3. Oh my gosh - what utterly exquisite spaces you've found. You always provide the best eye candy!

  4. Judy, I'm right with you! I'm absolutely LOVING all the Paris apartments and manors you've been posting lately. They are also my dream come true. I'm constantly tortured by the fact I can't just drive to Paris from Sydney. I'm dying to back for a longer stay however I'm torn cause I also really want to go back to America. It's been 13 years since my last visit. I'm working as hard as I can trying to make money whereever I can, even market research jobs to save for a holiday somewhere next year.

  5. Yep, this is the one...oh hang on! didn't I say that about the last one? You really have GOT TO STOP this torture!!lol. I love it.

  6. Hi Judith~ What a lovely post! There is so much to love in all those images. All the breathtaking architecture!!! I simply love the beautiful window treatment dividing the hall from the dining room. Beautiful!!!

  7. OK, you are officially killing me!
    I love the photos and dreaming but it is pure torture. :)

  8. Both such beautiful choices .. . but I must say I'd just love to play Scarlet and sweep down that staircase in the second apartment!
    (another ) - Judith

  9. You make the choice harder with each find! I would be happy with any one of them. Let's just hurry and decide so we can put in our bid.


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you!
