I recently made a trip to Paris to get some thinking space, time out and to take in the breathtaking french charm which I find so inspiring.
Monmatre is my favourite area of Paris, for it's bustling streets full of fabrics and fine bakeries (with crepes to die for). Not to mention the Basilica de Sacre Coeur which happens to have beautiful weather whenever I have visited there.
I thought that staying in Monmatre would be a great idea, although I did not realise how hilly this area is. Rather than taking the uphill cobbled street route each time I returned to my hotel, I took the back route via the Basilica which meant climbing the hundreds of steps to the top, although the view more than made up for it.
The friendly hotel staff upgraded me to a top floor room so that I had the best view over the city.
From my hotel view I could spot the Eiffel tower, which added a bit of Parisian charm to my stay.
Now that I am back from Paris, feeling refreshed, inspired and all stocked up on beautiful silk and trims. I can't wait to get back in the studio and create the vision I have for Laced With Love.
