Postcards from Paris: {Sουs Ιes tοits de Ρaris}




My favorite thing about my bedroom, other than the location, is my little attached balcony. I can step out and know without a doubt that I am in Paris. My view doesn't look out at the Eiffel tower, the Notre Dame, or the Sacre Coeur, rather I see a sea of rooftops. I love the Parisian rooftops. I love their different shades of grays creating a pixelated skyline. And the little embellishments of terra cotta red from the chimneys that add a warm element to the cool-tones.

I was continuing with my french lessons, (watching french films) and with my decision already made to mention the rooftops I came across this clip completely at random.
Another exceptional attribute to these roofs, are the people and their stories, who live under them.
Bisous,
Reba

My fantasy is to live in one of those wonderful apartments that look over the square infront of St Sulprice . There is one I remember that has a wonderful balcony . I think seeing the zinc roofs with or without that tourist view would be wonderful!!

How coincidental. Just yesterday, while eating macarons from Pierre Hermé, my friend and I sat in that square discussing all of the beautiful residences.
