Paris From The Heart

By LuAnne Silvia, ASID
We are wrapping up our week on inspiring finds about Paris... 
We are excited to host local author Jan Dolphin tomorrow at the first of our inspirational design series Spring Into Paris! Ms Dolphin's book, Paris From The Heart: Ultimate Walking Tours to Fun, Fashion and Freedom, is actually a series of guidebooks. Small enough to tuck into your purse, they are designed to grab and go and act as a personal guide to the city. They read like a conversation and it feels like you are traveling with a friend. Six volumes in all, with each one a new adventure awaits. I love my set!

A Woman's Paris is a blog by local artist Barbara Redmond for and about women who love Paris. Barbara Redmond writes about adventure, travel, arts, culture, cuisine, fashion, home and garden. She also lists other fabulous French inspired blogs she follows. Her artwork is sprinkled throughout, capturing the romance of Paris through her colorful illustrations. And one of her recent entries is about Ms. Dolphin's book: http://awomansparis.wordpress.com
Artwork by Barbara Redmond, we love her playful spirited watercolors!
