Parisian Doors

Paris may be known for delectable macarons and amazing museums, but I can never get enough of the gorgeous doors that line the city streets.

Here are a few of my favorites from our recent visit. The first two were just down the block from our hotel on the Boulevard de La Tour-Maubourg. It took us 10 minutes just to walk down to the adorable corner cafe for our morning coffee and croissant, since I kept stopping to snap pictures.

Here are a couple of addresses I specifically sought out - and Scott sweetly indulged my desire to do photo sessions in front of them.

74 Rue du Cardinal Lemoine - a third floor flat at this Latin Quarter address was the first Paris home of Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley.

Finally, 81 Rue de l'Université, which was the first Parisian address for Julia Child and her husband Paul. You can read more about our Parisian cooking adventures here, and a bit more about my fascination with Madame Child.
