A Favorite Blog (& shop): The Paris Apartment
There have been 'Share the Luv' blog awards circulating the internet, so I thought I'd share 10 of my favorite blogs with you, one-at-a-time, so I can give attention to each.
Let's begin with my longtime friend, Claudia Strasser, from The Paris Apartment. You may already know Claudia, as she is kind of a well-known gal. She authored a favorite book, The Paris Apartment in 1997.
Claudia is one of the nicest, fun, and creative women I know. Her beautiful blog is brimming with amazing photos, stories, her adventures in Paris (she plans trips there annually), flea market finds, and just about any subject you can think of.
Claudia is one talented lady. Artist, decorator, furniture designer, antiques dealer, writer, photographer. Have I left something out?Above: just some of the hundreds of Claudia's photos from her trips to Paris. She is an amazing photographer!
Claudia is working on a book, Boudoir Noir, based on the forbidden Hollywood film sets and stars. Read more about it on her blog!
Claudia is also a movie buff. Her blog is filled with glamorous old movie stills that serve as her inspiration for her furniture creations. AND, she just loves old movies!

Additionally, Claudia's website, The Paris Apartment, has a boutique where she sells her custom lines of furniture, as well as, gorgeous vintage finds. She also offers design services.
