pretavoyager Fun summer window display by Season Paper at L'Illustre Boutique, a shop that only sells work by French illustrators + it's in the cutest passageway, Passage du Grand Cerf! #paris75002 #lillustreboutique #seasonpaper 4d
  •   pretavoyager @mikodesign I so love the attention to detail in French window displays :) Also that this is all paper cut and not a digital display. Every few months this boutique invites a different illustrator to design the front window. Small shop but makes me very happy! 4d
  •   mikodesign I love that too, so different from the Netherlands, i will put this shop on my list to visit next time in Paris! Thanks for sharing! 4d
  •   pretavoyager @mikodesign other fact is by law you have to have prices in windows when showcasing goods! This is a nice workaround + inviting. 4d
  •   helloashleymoe Ooo! I'm visiting paris for the first time in a few weeks and definitely want to stop by here (I'm a letterpress printer and looove printed goods). I'm staying near the gare saint lazare-- any tips on the best way to get there? Merci 4d
  •   pretavoyager @helloashleymoe it's in a passage way that's covered and pedestrian only but it's on the map... FYI I do offer a Paris Design Tour on Vayable.com 4d
  •   amyfeezor Best passage in all of Paris! Love that shop. @nicholerobertson 4d

pretavoyager Yesterday @laurenloubate gave me an awesome tour of her neighborhood #paris75017. The area around Parc Clichy-Batignolles-Martin Luther King would have become the Olympic Village had Paris won the bid. It's definitely an area growing on it's own and I'm still jealous of these kids with the water jets that turn on and off every few minutes. Another HOT one in Paris!! 6d

pretavoyager Every summer I get bummed when boulangeries, boucheries, & cafes renovate to become more "modern" and gut all the original charm from the space. I hope the original signage stays. #paris75001 1w
  •   floridaamy Agreed. 1w
  •   absomorzalutely What a bummer 1w
  •   edwardmills Well, when it comes to boucheries, beef and chicken maybe it's good that they install refrigerators, instead of "ice boxes", ? Maybe? 1w
  •   pretavoyager @edwardmills they can install new fridges, but all the tiles and cool stuff is replaced with soulless furniture that feels boring and generic. . . I often feel like rather than just doing a deep cleaning places think it's easier to gut and start from scratch. 1w

pretavoyager Enormous @omy_studio coloring wall chez @mercishopparis! Signature red Fiat is the only thing colored in, but hope they open it to the public to color before they take it down... Starting point for my @Vayable Design Tour today with a couple who lives in Panama and are opening a gallery/concept store this fall. Explored #paris75003 + La Jeune Rue! Fun times!! 1w

pretavoyager When your regular pools are closed/under construction/on strike you have to go with what's open - and it even happens to have a retractable roof!! Surprise -so happy to see the sky! May be a fluke - since it's a holiday - but the swimmers today were actually decent and yielded to faster swimmers at turns (a true rarity in Paris!). That didn't stop me from cruising past all 10 men in my lane. 😎 37,5m longeur #piscine #mentalhealth #paris75020 2w

pretavoyager To celebrate Bastille Day (start of vacation season in France) + 7 years of blogging, I compiled a BLOGGERS GUIDE TO FRANCE with over 100 posts by my favorite bloggers as a follow up to my BLOGGERS GUIDE TO PARIS! Of course I had to make a map too. It's live now on pret-a-voyager.com! Please share any links I missed in the comments on my blog. Happy Travels! #France #bastilleday #14juillet 2w
