{j'aime EXTERIORS...and some interiors too!}

For this week's edition of j'aime EXTERIORS, I couldn't help but to include some interiors as well. In the past I've focused on homes, but it was nearly one year ago that Heritage Days in Paris took place. And...the Journées Européennes du Patrimoine will recommence (9/20 & 9/21)! Therefore, why not "celebrate" with the beauty that Paris offers. There are SO many exteriors that "j'aime", but these are especially unique due to their inguaration into Paris Heritage. So... here we go to Paris!

Palais de l'Elysée - Official Residence of the President of the French Republic

Maison internationale

rear façade of the Maison internationale

Hôtel d'Avaray, Dutch ambassador's residence

Cité universitaire internationale

Manufacture nationale de Sèvres

Hôtel de Roquelaure - Ministère de l'Equipement

Château de Vincennes

Musée du quai Branly

{And for the interiors...} Palais d'Iéna - conseil économique et social

Palais du Luxembourg- Sénat

Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine - Palais de Chaillot

Galerie d'Architecture Moderne et Contemporaine (GAMC)

Galerie des Moulages

Manufacture des Gobelins

Musée des Arts décoratifs

Hôtel de Béhague - Romanian ambassador's residence

The historic beauty found in each of these photos completely inspires me! After looking through these and talking about traveling to France last night with Mr. Murphy, I can't help but long! Oh, how I long to get back there...{sigh}!

We'll be sure "visit" Paris/France again soon with some fun photos. Hopefully for now, these will bring you some unexpected mid-week inspiration!

::Lovely Wednesday to you all::
