Pictures from London & Paris

March 8, 2012 Notes from Nicole

Two colorful front doors in Kensington…

 Last month I spent a week in London with a quick jaunt to Paris at the tail end of the trip and I had such a wonderful experience! I took a ton of photos so I thought I’d share a few here. The architecture is quite stunning and there’s so much history and charm in these two beautiful cities! Here’s a quick photo tour of my adventure! 

These little red phone booths are so charming!

The Regent Street shopping area by day…

And by night…

The fabulous home decor shop Graham & Green in Notting Hill…(I have a weak spot for bone inlaid furniture & I loved this chest!)

Portobello Market…

The crowds at Portobello Market…

Flea market finds…

Crepes!

Colorful houses in Notting Hill…

The best culinary book shop I’ve ever seen! It was so charming and it has a little cafe in the back…

The Eiffel Tower by day…

And by night…

Flowers for sale on Rue Cler

Beautiful pictures. I particularly like the colorful Nottinghill residences.

And I stayed on Rue Cler when I was last in Paris (a decade ago… I need to go back!)

Love the rowhouse colors and the picture of the colorful doors. I also like the night time pics. Lighting does wonders.

I love, love, LOVE Paris!! My favorite city in the world. I’m hoping to return this Fall for a week. I just love walking around and looking in the windows. Thanks for the photos.

Can’t say the same about London.

I love the houses in Notting Hill. Must have taken ages to find those. Last time I was in London it looked pretty much all the same :)
Well, China Town and Leicester Square were slightly different, I love these areas.
