High ceilings in Paris

I've been busy lately, but couldn't let this beauty pass by unrecorded. The home of architect Jacques Gourvénec, with 14-foot-ceilings, and lots of books and art.

And it's in Paris. I'm hoping to have a trip to Paris this year.

Also, he builds his own furniture — which is something I totally wish I could do! I mean, mine wouldn't look like this, but there's something to be said for getting things exactly the way you want them. Unfortunately, my technical skills aren't so advanced. (Extra shoutout to those herringbone floors!)

A hearty yes to the herringbone floors and of course, the bookshelves. And Paris. Sigh.

You're back, you're back! Love the ceilings, and ready to head to gay Paris, post haste.
