We have a new home in Paris. It’s a lovely 2 BR in the 15th arrondissement. We get the keys next Tuesday.
When I envisioned my first Paris apartment, this is pretty much what I had hoped for us. I will say that I had low expectations for the kitchen and it did not exceed them. We have to supply everything (stove, oven, cabinets). There is a nice cut out for that washer/dryer or a refrigerator and another small area for a small fridge. We’re going for the larger washer/dryer since there is not a laundry in sight and with the small oven/stove in the other area. There are also no closets so we’ll be heading to BHV (one of my favorite stores in Paris) or good ol’ Ikea for some wardrobes. Luckily, this is pretty standard in Paris so there are places to go to get everything we need.
I will be getting my blog organized in the next week but with terrible jet lag and just getting our “house in order” and am a bit behind.
We can’t wait for visitors once we get all our stuff (mid-May if we’re lucky). I’ll keep everyone posted.
