I was offered (yes it was a present ) a swiffer base but the wipers are a huge waste of money compared to microfibre, I just put a washable microfibre mop.

If this column was a competition that would be a WIN ! What a remarkable story, I admit my eyes teared up a little.

Best thing about furnishing a tiny flat in Paris: I found most of my furniture on the sidewalk, people here are generous with their midcentury heirlooms : http://smalletbeautiful.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/amenager-un-petit-appartement-avec-un-petit-budget-2-choisir-la-recup-de-rue/

i'm into gallery walls a lot but a majestic painting would have complimented this amazing set of table and chairs. And the paper templates look much better with the room than the actual pictures.

Yes. Hopefully a brilliant entrepreneur will start up a French take on this in Paris too!

A panic house, huh? Well I guess if you're a warlord or in a witness program you might enjoy it.

It's so great to have built a space where the little one can play ball indoors. It's so important in a rainy city. In a regular house parents would worry the kid could break stuff, that's not an issue here.

Wow it's brilliant those pieces are museum worthy. You are very lucky, they are beauties. I look forward to see if they can be restored while keeping their patina. Keep us posted.

Beautiful craftsmanship. The bench and coffee table are a total success. The most cohesive rooms are the ones where you have art : the nursery, bedroom and office. It takes time to find the perfect piece for a room, keep up the good work.
