Design Residency: Parisian Prep Kitchen

A lot of my fellow bloggers visited Paris this summer. I spent a week in Paris in 2006 and it was hot hot hot! I'd love to go back with Ian and really experience the romantic side of things. Today's post brings the Parisian style into a quaint prep kitchen! Inspiration: Style Me Pretty is one of my favorites to source out inspiration. From gorgeous weddings to beautiful photoshoots it is always full of eye candy. SMP is where I discovered the stunning photography of Lexia Frank. After you read this post visit her site...and swoon.


Translation: What's Paris known for other than style? OH yeah, the food! Noms - for real. Lace, cream, fleur de lis, pastel pinks and some culinary talent create the Parisian style in your own kitchen.
