"La Carrotte" Apartement, Paris. We Miss it...

Apartement "La Carotte" certainly was a place that will forever be in our hearts. The view of Notre Dame out of our window amazed us every morning.

This is not a postcard shot. This is the actual view with the window open on a sunny day in January 2010.

Robespierre back from the Maubert market with haricots verts. Note: Chef is testing wine glasses for leakage...... and to make sure wine is A OK. He's very dedicated.

The fireplace in the living room with books and a little crown from one of the king cakes at a local patisserie.

A little plate of macaroons and sauternes our last treat before we left. Not from Laduree, but from another bakery we will expound on later in the Marais. We liked these better.

View at night......Seagrass and white slipcovers....Gold accents.

Who wouldn't be comfortable in a place like this?

Robes hard at work checking e-mails ( you can't see the wine glass.)

I forgot to rotate this before it was stored DUH but this is the bedroom fireplace.
My Apologies, just turn your head......:) Whatever...I don't blog for a living....No Arianna Huffington here thank you very much...

The bedroom with the silk fabric headboard and cherubs...

Robes bidding adieu, adieu, to you and you, and you. Already inked it for next year.
Thanks, Jenny.


  1. This apartment is so amazing! What a view you had here.

    Thanks for sharing your Parisian bliss with those of us less fortunate to be there!! :)


  3. I am so very envious! What a marvelous place!

  4. It looks like a real home away from home. A much better idea then a sterile hotel room.

  5. MaryAnne - how divine! And the best way of living. I bet you felt like it was really your home. Love the last image. Now that is Paris! Glad you are back and safe. (Also loved the photo of you and Greet over at B. Pearls!). Happy week, dear! xx Mon

  10. Hi Maryanne,

    I loved seeing your photos of your apartment in Paris. What a lovely place and view and it must have been hard to leave.
    Renting an apartment is such a great thing to do, when in Paris. That is what we also did for 8 days.


  11. Maryanne!

    You are so welcome! I am very happy it turned out so well for you and Peter. Plus, it looks as though the weather was pretty nice (for January at least). Again, so glad you enjoyed your stay. Jenny C.

  12. I can see why you will miss this amazing home. What a great experience in a fabulous city. I know you will be to even greater adventures!
