Parisians are smart when it comes to their wardrobes and also their use of space in their apartments. The main focus of any living room comes down to two pieces: the coffee table and the couch. A coffee table can we well styled in a few easy steps and with a Parisian theme you can have your living room feeling French in no time.
Fresh flowers or a plant. In Paris the Winter months can be especially gray. This is also true in Chicago where we are based so adding a little touch of something fresh goes a long way.
