Villa & Demeure, Paris


Paris is literally overflowing with unique boutiques
Villa & Demeure is one of those special stops where you can pop in 
to find the perfect cadeau (gift).

Located in the 16th arrondissment, Villa & Demeure is next to lots of 
cafés, boulangeries and boutiques. 

The boutique owner, Patricia Bigot, has a flair for creating stunning displays to showcase the fine collection of wares for you and your home

I popped in to do some Christmas shopping and had to 
start snapping some photos of this gorgeous table



The creamy dishes are mixed with touches of red and crystal goblets. 
Santa even makes an appearance, the perfect gift for your guests to take home.



Patricia kindly lit the candles to set this holiday table off to perfection.
She also speaks English! 
 One of my New Year's Resolutions - improve my French...

 


The soft green is a nice background for these reindeer dishes 
(Is that Rudolph)? 


Silver accents 

The furniture and chandeliers are also for sale. 


Crystal cubes are the finishing touch to your table.  

Merci beaucoup Patricia pour votre hospitalité!   





Looking for the perfect gift?    
Stop by and do some shopping at www.BelleInspiration.com 
 and be entered in a giveaway at the same time.
'The Holiday Edition' is now online! 






Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!

That table setting is stunning, but the chairs got my attention - love the shape and the large nail head trim.
I think I spy a blackamore on the floor behind the open cabinet door - photo #8 - love him too.
The formal china is great, but the green reindeer set stole my heart.
Sweet!

Hope this finds you well rested for the holidays.

I love the reindeer dishes
even if I am all muted with tones, they would be that perfect touch of holiday cheer to any Joyeux Noel French setting.

Thank you for sharing a bit of Paris with us.

Still enjoying the wonderful GiveAway you featured, I have added it to my French holiday decor :)
