Paris Perfect by Georgianna Lane

Hello, dearest friends and bright New Year wishes to you! You are always in my thoughts and heart.

I so hope that 2017 offers windows of wonderful opportunity for each of you and that the year is filled with health, happiness and fulfillment.

My year has been eventful and full of travel and very fulfilling professional projects. I’m officially able to share with you now details about my upcoming book release, Paris in Bloom by my wonderful publisher, Abrams Books.

 

Paris in Bloom by Georgianna Lane

Photographed in early December this year at Cafe de Flore with David.

I wrote and photographed Paris in Bloom to transport you on a sumptuous floral tour of the city, just as if we were strolling together through the streets on a perfect spring day. An unashamedly romantic celebration of her floral charms, Paris in Bloom was inspired by my first visit to the city as a teenager with my Mum. Picnics in flower-filled parks along the Seine, up-close viewings of Impressionist paintings, observation of the Parisian art of presentation and wonder at the magnificence of the architecture all had a profound effect on my artistic journey.

In addition to hundreds of photographs taken over the last several years, inside I share my personal recommendations for the best flower markets and floral boutiques, parks and gardens. Along with a guide to locating the prettiest spring blossoms in the city, I include a field guide for identifying the most common flowers and blooming trees. You’ll even find a step-by-step lesson to create your own Parisian-style floral arrangement for your home and much more!

Much thought and care was put into making Paris in Bloom a book for you, as a Paris and flower lover, to savor again and again, one to keep on your nightstand to inspire dreams of your first, or next, visit to this glorious city.

Since many of you have been with me from the early days of this blog, I feel that it is our special project together, one that your support has inspired and encouraged me to pursue and finish.

I’m so excited that book is already available for pre-order now right HERE. I’ll have final copies in my hands very soon and will share a sneak peek of the interior with you then!

And a few weeks ago,  I edited together a video of clips that I’d been shooting over the last year and am happy to now share it with you here! Take a look and let me know what you think!

2016 has been a roller coaster ride, hasn’t it? But no matter what is happening in the world, with politicians or governments or the economy, the important thing is our personal connections. I’m proud and honored to have dear friends in Russia, Korea, South Africa, India, Indonesia, Dubai, South America, Europe, Canada, Asia, the US – really all around the globe. You make my days brighter and I love hearing what’s happening in your part of the world.

I’ll be back in a few days with a special giveaway for each of you. Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!

    Oh Georgianna,
    On this chilly January evening, I’ve been transported back to my dear Paris, and truly Paris while in bloom is the most magical time of the year. You have captured the magic in this video. Can’t wait to see the book!
