Ah the French

I have been working with a couple on their beautiful home in Lake Oswego for three years now. They are some of the nicest people I have ever worked for. While they were celebrating their anniversary this last week in Paris they indulged my request for some photos of interiors. Ah the French...

                           The French do chandeliers like no other (Ritz Carlton.)

The bar at the Bristol. (Woody Allen was spotted in the lobby...he was also staying here.)

The French give new meaning to the words Over-sized! This floral arrangement in the Ritz commands your attention and it almost completely covers the 30' tall mirror.

 This last photo is of chandeliers surrounded by hanging crystals in the restaurant Alaine Ducasse at Plaza Athenee. What a brilliant must look like a constellation of stars at night. 

If you would like a little dose of all things French subscribe to Vicki Archers blog French Essence.
