Behind the scenes of Paris - Atelier Choux

Behind the scenes of Paris

Adorable creatures are starting their day in the city of lights. Parisians and tourists alike are walking around with their breakfast baguettes, lounging in cafés sipping coffee and smelling the fresh croissants emanate from the boulangeries. It must be a weekend because the farmers market is already bustling. Tourists are consulting their maps, rushing to see all the landmarks. A fashion photoshoot is taking place, while little further there on one can spot a movie being filmed. Such beautiful weather calls for a delicious picnic or a boat ride along the Seine. A group of friends is playing pétanque next to Eiffel Tower and a mischievous visitor is sending off a paper plane from the top of this magnificent landmark. Where will the paper plane land? In this romantic city, you can always spot few “love birds” here and there. Can you spot the lovely couple holding a heart balloon?

Paris, the city of lights, is the home of Atelier Choux. The atmosphere and the aesthetics of Paris is close to our hearts. That is why Paris is one of our most beloved prints. All the little details are bringing the Parisian feeling into nurseries everywhere. The fountain of Saint Michel is one our favorite details – it is a landmark that is next to the Atelier Choux boutique in the 6eme arrondissement.
