We’ve been staying warm out in California for a few weeks now but this doesn’t mean that we’re not tremendously missing our beloved Europe and more precisely our second base, Paris. We are still in the middle of apartment hunting. Not as easy to find a place out in the city when you keep flying in and out and barely have time to squeeze in a stop at Le Bon Marché. But we are getting there. 2015 was the year of settling down in Los Angeles and hopefully 2016 will finally mean finding our dream Parisian home.
Until then, we are still exploring the city and enjoying stays in different areas to get a grasp the different vibes each has to offer. I am a huge fan of Saint Germain. It just simply breathes art, poetry and creativity… I can imagine, as I walk by the small intimate brasseries and little boutiques, all the various fascinating stories that the places have lived an old writers or painters sit quietly on a terrace, sipping on a glass of Muscat while getting inspired by the magical atmosphere of the place.
So far, we’ve tried renting a few Air Bnb’s here and there, one especially memorable in Mont Martre. It was so tiny we could barely move in the bathroom but so charming. As soon as you step out the condo, you discover this absolutely mesmerizing part of the city and you just feel transported to a completely different impression of Paris. I always feel like I am in “La Valse D’Amélie” with the musicians playing accordion and the colorful window displays. It’s one of the most charming parts of town.
Of course, we also had the most amazing hotel experiences too. I am a huge fan of lifestyle and especially hotels that provide with a complete experience. Even if we do have our favorite spots in town, from time to time, it’s nice to go through a change. Especially if you spend most of your year staying in hotels. This year in fact, we counted, we stayed more than 6months in various hotel across the world and spent 60% of our time in Paris. Which makes it obvious that we need to find a certain comfort to be able to stay productive during our stay.
I always enjoyed discovering beautiful, charming and chic boutique hotels. One day as I was shopping around on Rue Saint Honoré, I stumbled upon this beautiful entrance which indicated me that there was a restaurant called “Le Baudelaire”. I was so intrigued by the beautiful gold finishings, the black and white aesthetic. It didn’t take long before I made our first reservation for dinner and instantly : fell in love.
It is only afterwards that I understood that the Baudelaire is the restaurant part of the hotel : Le Burgundy. Hidden away from the city’s craziness, Le Burgundy is one of the most beautiful and luxurious boutique hotels I’ve stayed in Paris. Every detail is perfectly refined and it’s hard to have a better client service. Especially in Paris. Everybody is so caring and you’ll always find a chocolate on your pillow before going to bed. One thing that I am particularity sensitive to is the scent. They have their own distinctive scent which makes it so nice as soon as you step inside. The breakfast is a dream and the restaurant even better. I highly, highly recommend you guys to try it on a special occasion as it is a very beautiful, gastronomical high food experience. That is where the team and I celebrated the L’Oréal announcement! We spent the night laughing and crying while eating the most fabulous deserts and cheese. Call it a heaven on earth. Last but not least, the hotel also has a spa and pool : imagine swimming at 2am after a long day of strolling around. There’s truly nothing better than that.

Congratulations on your article Kristina ! I love it! The way you talk about him and what makes you feel reminds me of how I feel when I am in Marbella (Spain ). It is a small place by the sea (I love the sea ) but very cosmopolitan with a mix of cultures really interesting. So I decided to start my business image consulting, personal shopping , event and wedding planning in Marbella. http://susanasanjose.com/ image consultant, personal shopperhttp://susanasanjose.com/

Felicidades por tu articulo Kristina! Me encanta! La manera en que hablas de él y lo que te hace sentir me recuerda mucho a lo que siento yo cuando estoy en Marbella (Spain) es un lugar pequeño junto al mar (I love the sea) pero muy cosmopolita con una mezcla de culturas super interesante. Por eso decidí montar mi negocio de image consulting, personal shopping, event and wedding planning in Marbella. Enjoy the life! http://susanasanjose.com/ image consultant, personal shopperhttp://susanasanjose.com/

Love the photos and your style. So amazing.
I also think it's admirable that you write so much.
Oh please Kristina, tu passe tellement de temps à Paris et tu parle français alors les accordéons pour Paris sont bannis, c'est tellement cliché de cinéma étranger que je n'en peux plus! Alors tout le monde mais pas toi, sinon tu passes pour une touriste.
Love the photos and I'm so happy for you! Paris is a wonderful city and living there is the dream. So exciting!http://www.blushinbrunette.com/
You have beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing your journey with us!http://www.stylnova.net

Over 6 months?! Wow! I wouldn't mind 6 months of hotel stay if it's in a beautiful hotel such as this one, Kristina! The feel of the photos is amazing so I can't imagine what it's like in person. I hope you are able to find your Paris apartment soon! xohttp://huongctvo.com
House hunting here too. Found ideal place in a leafy spot, roomy with loads of space, but something came up and someone else might grab it now...Having to deep breathe to keep from filling the air with expletives, hah. Pressing on with the game though. Good luck on your side!
Tu es championne pour dénicher les petites perles parisiennes, décidément, cette ville est faite pour toi. En lisant ton livre, je découvre ce côté 100% artistique de ta personnalité, je ne te pensais pas si créative, mais du coup ça ne m'étonne pas tant que ça. Paris ne peut que t'aller à merveille. Cette ville respire l'art.
Love the architecture! =)http://www.looksbymc.com

Seems like you had a great time in this hotel.
I have heard of Le Burgundy but have never been, looks really beautiful!
Six months in hotels sounds like a dream to me if it wouldn't cost so much!http://inspiredinsanity.com.au/

6 months in hotels is hard. I used to travel on business & it's not as glamorous as it sounds to others. I love the vibe of the Burgundy in your shots. Good luck with your continued search on a base in Paris.
Hugs Adele xoxo

Love this artist meets classic style hotel, which seems to be a great comparison to your own personal style, Kristina! I particularly love your outfit here, with flat, slightly chunky boots, with a feminine, structured jacket. I'm glad you introduced this hotel, because I will be stopping by Paris this Christmas; I will have to check out the restaurant!http://www.mlmuse.com

Seems like such an amazing placehttp://fashionbackyard.blogspot.fr
I'm crossing my fingers that you'll find the perfect spot in Paris to settle down but I guess that by now you should know the city like the little pocket inside of a Chanel bag :)
That is an amazing hotel, looks great really. It's fantastic that you're going to live in between my two favourite cities LA and Paris. Now you should also include New York and everything would be complete :D I wish I could do that one day!
This may seem kinda strange but I could not stop looking at the sunglasses they look so good in you !!!
Totally love your sunglasses!http://www.thefashionplaybook.de

I love Montmartre, if I ever moved to Paris, I would live there…. the streets are so cute. You really feel like you're in Paris in that arrondissement!
Hopefully you will have the opportunity to visit Europe and Paris soon again ... Wish you many luck for finding the right apartment. You look wonderful on the pictures!http://dressedwithsoul.com
