Are you moving to Paris at the end of the month? Well even if like me you don’t, let’s just dream all together for a minute about our ‘new’ address in the city.

Le 81 avenue Victor Hugo, Paris XVI

First of all it sounds like a chic place to live no matter what. This entirely newly renovated Haussmannian building is located – right here – 30 apartments (from studio to the 5 rooms – note that in France we consider the living room a ‘room’ so that means 4 bedrooms for the largest) within a relative walking distance to the Arc the Triomphe, the Tour Eiffel and Avenue George V for $hopping. Being from France, those are not my favorite places to go when I am in Paris, I rather walk around le Marais or the Tuileries Garden and St Germain but let’s not be too picky here. I will take a view on the Eiffel Tower over my dream location.

The best thing about living in Paris is that you can walk everywhere, even to your top floor apartment. Oui, Oui. I mean look at those gorgeous stairs, it would be a sacrilège to use the elevator. Also that is one chic and sexy way to burn some extra calories. Why do you think French are so thin? We do walk a lot, mostly because we don’t always have the option not to.

Now the WOW factor or should I say the OHLALA factor:

Just imagine opening your door after a long day going from cafés to boulangerie-pâtisseries and various little shops around the city to Parisian rooftops and and the Eiffel Tower! How magnifique is that?

This walk-in closet is pretty amazing not to say incroyable for a Parisian apartment, it is such a rare thing to have!!! Our former Parisian bedroom was almost smaller than our current Los Angeles closet. I am not kidding you. The sad thing is that I now find our closet way too small #NotParisianProblemsAnymore.

The bathroom is nice but I’m gonna be honest, not my favorite thing. I hate those heated towel racks, they may be useful but totally bring back memories of cold Parisian winter mornings that I have been trying to forget. Also I do not like, I repeat, I do not like when bathrooms walls are half covered with tiles. This was the first thing I did in our Parisian condo. Cover those walls all the way up to the ceiling. I still do not get why someone would decide to cover half a wall. Anyway …

The kitchen is super white and modern, like a really super futuristic white Ikea modern kitchen … not the French kitchen of my dreams where I would want to spend hours cooking, but it is large and seems functional. Also the OCD in me cannot look over the fact that not a single person would have had the genius idea to mop the floors before taking the pictures, god I love my country I think things would never change but I love it.
