First to feature, Talisa Sutton, Sydney-based graphic designer/illustrator shares with me her guide to Paris!
l'Hôtel de Ville - The square in front of the Hôtel de Ville plays host to different attractions throughout the year. During winter there is an ice skating rink which is absolutely amazing, especially at night accompanied by the twinkling lights of the hotel.
Pl. de l'Hôtel-de-Ville, Marais, Paris, 75004
Centre Pompidou - The 'inside-out' design of this gallery is amazing in itself. What is even more impressive is their contemporary art collection. It was amazing to see work from artists like Cy Twombly and Yves Klein in person.
Place Georges Pompidou, entrée par la piazza, Paris, 75191
Chez Omar - This is Sofia Coppola's favourite restaurant in Paris and with good reason - the cous cous is to die for! In fact, North African food in Paris is pretty amazing in general.
47, rue de Bretagne, Paris, 75003
Poilane - I first read about Poilane in The Gentlewoman, sadly while I missed having brunch there (weekends only), they still have a lovely selection of fresh bread and pastries.
38, rue Debelleyme, Paris, 75003
Rose Bakery - That carrot cake! I recommend going on a weekend when they have the full breakfast menu; the banana smoothie and pancakes are a must-try, especially if you're a big fan of the cookbook.
3, rue des Rosiers, Paris 75004
Chez Hanna - One of my favourite cheap eats. The falafel special is a must try and they have cider and banana smoothies. My two favourite beverages!
54, rue des Rosiers, paris, 75004
Andy Wahloo - A very cool 70s Moroccan style bar. I recommend going for an after dinner drink just to see the venue.
69, rue des Gravilliers, Paris, 75003
Merci - An Incredible concept store which is like a boutique meets gallery. There is a library cafe and a canteen downstairs, I recommend trying both!
111, Boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris, 75003
COS - My favourite high street store; go for the beautiful and simple sleepwear, lingerie and cashmere basics.
4, rue des Rosiers, Paris, 75004
Bonton - A very sweet children's store which has a fun vintage photo booth.
5 bd. des Filles du Calvaire, Paris, 75003
Isabel Marant - Always a favourite, the store has such a great selection and is beautifully merchandised.
47, rue de Saintonge, Paris, 75003
Yvon Lambert Bookshop - So many special books and zines here. The space has a small gallery room attached to it and everytime I went back I discovered something new. So much so that my hand luggage was 10kg over!
108, Rue Vieille du Temple, Paris, 75003
A.P.C - For breton stripes, a classic trench coat and those lovely candles.
112, Rue Vieille du Temple, Paris, 75003
