my dad’s favorite store in paris



It’s where the rugs in the house in mexico came from. Dad loves the briht colors, fun patterns and low low prices. La Compagnie du Sénégal et de l’Afrique de l’Ouest is in the 3rd arrondisement in Paris, but you can also order things online. Dad sent these images the other day along with a bunch of others seemingly designed to make me feel jealous (?).

oh, and now he’s in Portugal, in case you weren’t jealous yet.

    Thank you for the tip! Your dad is truly a man with great taste and someone to be jealous of. Not only because of his travels and his house in Mexico, but also because of his daughter who makes beautiful and inspiring photographs. I love you blog and your style and have featured some of your images (WITH links to your blog and website, of course! :-)) several times on my own blog. I even devoted a complete post to your dad’s Mexican house (http://iladyoracle.blogspot.com/2011/05/interior-love.html) I hope that’s okay? Keep up the lovely work!

    Hi! I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now. Between this post and the Todos Santos house I’m having heart palpitations. Seriously amazing stuff.

    CSAO is one of the best boutiques in Paris. My all time favorite is Caravane which has three stores in Paris. One in the Marais and two in the Bastille. I’ve photographed both and the people who own and work in each store have been so helpful in changing my view of interior design. You have to go there! Great blog, by the way.

    Felicia–I will definitely go to caravane the next time I’m in Paris, thanks for the tip and for stopping by!

    It’s so nice when people speak well about our country! I’m Portuguese and I live near Porto so I recognize most of the places where your father took those photos. I hope he is enjoying his stay! If he ‘s in town next week he shouldn’t miss the night of Saint John’s (São João). Great time to be in town!
