The grandeur of an historic Parisian home
For centuries, Paris, the City of Light, has been at the heart of influence in terms of culture, lifestyle, economy, politics and literature. In the heart of the city, you’ll find the Marais, a well-preserved medieval quarter full of narrow cobblestone streets, secret courtyards and serene gardens. Formerly an aristocratic neighbourhood which was home to famous figures like writer Victor Hugo, it is now filled with the best art galleries and museums. We take a look at how a local home draws endless inspiration from its surroundings.
