un Singe en hiver.. garden shop in Paris

Posted October 01, 2014 by Christina


Okay friends..  this is kind of a repost from one of our trips to Paris..  I loved this shop and shared it on the blog last summer but was not able to find the card that I had picked up with the name and address...  while I was searching through my Paris books and travel goodies I came across the card.. I highly suggest a visit if you are in Paris!

6 Rue Paul Bert
93400 Saint Quen

While shopping the flea markets in Paris on our trip we happened upon this sweet garden shop in the area.  I am not sure if it was part of the flea markets or not but it stole my attention in less than a second.  The creative displays made my heart skip a beat.  I snapped a picture of the flower box hedge before I had a chance to see how many inspiring spaces they had created.  
Each was a simple collection of vintage pieces but they were done so well, maybe it was the repetition or the negative space around them I am not sure even now, but I know it was they type of display that sticks in your memory.  I left feeling extremely inspired.  I loved everything about it!

Love it all. The cement tiles are beautiful, you don’t get more French than that.
Great vignette idea’s.

I am going to Paris in a few weeks and I will absolutely be stopping by this place. I love cobalt blue and one of those babies just might find it’s way home with me, and maybe a few more items. Thanks for the heads up.

Oddly, there is a shop like this in Birmingham, AL. Client took me there, alas, owner may have had to retire.

He had traveled the globe for decades, buying.

Who couldn’t create a beautiful garden from this shop?

Thanks for knowing to share it.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
