A dose of "Styles Parisiens" in 30 minutes

The great thing about living in Paris is that you'll always find an excuse to leave the house and explore. Being the cultural hub that it is, you are never at a loss of options.

When we talk museums it does not always have to be the Louvre or the Musée d'Orsay, there is an array of little public museums that you can check out for free.... and you can get your daily dose of culture in 30 minutes if you wish.

Not feeling very energetic I decided to pay the Hotel de Ville (City House) a visit. I was not disappointed. To celebrate their 50th anniversary the magazine Marie Claire Maison invested in an exhibition called "Styles Parisiens" that showcased and valorised the impeccable Parisian style.

Associating archive images of Marie Claire House and pieces of contemporary design, "Styles Parisiens" made me go back in time and rediscover the unforgettable trends of the Parisian decoration! The emblematic atmospheres were staged in boxes that associated the archive images of the magazine with contemporary furniture, loaned by major design brands.

You don't need to be a connaisseur to enjoy a half an hour stroll through these inspiring spaces.

 A little souvenir to take home: une carafe d'eau!
