Rose Gold Autumn in Paris

Autumn in Paris by Georgianna Lane

Although I adore Paris in spring, autumn brings its own enchantment in shades of copper, rose gold and pale green. I thought you’d enjoy seeing the splendors of the season through the parks and gardens of the city.

Notre Dame floats above the many-hued trees of the Square Jean XIII. I love that patch of red Virginia creeper that covers part of the wall at the end of Île de la Cité, and that little burst of chartreuse from the tree at the opposing end of Île Saint-Louis.

Dawn at Luxembourg Gardens fills the trees with a luminous atmosphere.

A favorite stop in autumn – the carousel in the Tuileries.

The empty chairs in the Tuileries are always so evocative – bearing the ghosts of endless conversations and memories of silent contemplation.

In November, the urns at Luxembourg are filled with colorful mums.

This golden chandelier at Versailles seems a perfect counterpoint to the natural gold of the leaves.

The chairs in Luxembourg have their own style and personality.

Another wonderful aspect of autumn in Paris is that the summer crowds have left and a palpable quiet descends. I hope this sets you daydreaming of this wonderful season in beautiful Paris.

À bientôt!

Book Review: London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

In the course of my career, I’ve been very fortunate to personally connect, via social media and in person, with authors whose work I’ve admired for years. Among my very favorite and most respected is Janelle McCulloch, author of Paris: An Inspiring Tour of the City’s Creative Heart and numerous other travel, decor and lifestyle titles. Thus, I’m thrilled and honored to share with you her latest release: London Secrets. How gorgeous is that cover?

London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

As with her other books, London Secrets is a rich mix of luscious photography and thoughtful, in-depth writing based on exhaustive research into lesser known gems of this fabulous city. I’ve been traveling to London since I was a teenager, and lived in the city on two different occasions, so would say I know the city well. But this book introduced me to a fascinating array of new delights.

My favorite section (of course) covers botanical spaces, which can be found in unexpected locations throughout the metropolis.

Gardens, florists, bookstores, fabric and decor outlets, antique shops, boutique hotels and beautiful restaurants are abundantly featured. I’ve just returned from London but this book makes me want to jump right on a plane back. As a guide for planning a visit to the city, you’ll find more than you can fit in even a lengthy trip. And if traveling to London is not in your immediate schedule, this book will give you a marvelous armchair adventure. As stylish and fascinating as the city itself, this is a must-have addition to any travel library.
