Hi Dianne,Lovely post you have shared.An apartment we rented in le rue Poncelet back in 2007 every time we opened the shutters, you could see the flakes of paint dropping down into the street below.Happy weekendHugsCarolyn
Bonjour dear Dianne,I'm always enchanted by windows, and this picture is very beautiful with charming windows!HugsLéia
Somehow it all adds to the old worldly charm. I love it! x
I absolutely love the shabby chic look. I may have seen this actual wall when I was in Paris. It looks so familiar. Thanks.Linda
I like the shabby chic look, but I'm thinking perhaps it's gone a little past shabby and now less chic. A little peeling is fine; too much is too much. Just my two cents.....Sam
Sam:- you could be right! as Carolyn said when you open the shutters and the flakes of paint flutter down to the street -perhaps it's time for a sand and re-paint.
Super lovely blog!xoxo,colormenana.blogspot.com
I had the same thought when I was in Venice but now I definitely think it adds to the charm. But there is a limit! Love your photos of the Musée D'Orsay, too, Dianne. What a magnificent setting for such incredible works of art. Wishing you a lovely week! xo – g
Somehow I suppose that the inside is cozier because the shutters show a little wear.
Shabby chic just works so well in some places, such as France and Italy. Here in the UK such a style can just looks shabby- it is all to do with the light and style I think- lovely blog!Chrissyhttp://mancunianwave.blogspot.com/
