Inside the Parisien Home of a Chef / Photographer

Tjena! Hur är läget? I often think some of the most unique homes come about when two cultures collide, how about you? This is definitely the case with Carrie Solomon's lovely abode. Carrie moved from Michigan, USA to Paris over a decade ago and describes herself on instagram as a "breakfast cook, author, mother, and a photographer" (i.e. one busy, yet very creative lady!). Her lovely home is light and airy and filled with natural textures and cosy, one-off pieces set against a backdrop of white. Constance Gennari of The Socialite Family paid her a visit and snapped these images of Carrie's perfect oasis in the bustling 10th arrondissement: 

I get such a warm and inviting feeling from these pictures, how about you?! I especially love the light-filled sitting room which is separated from the bedroom with a glass partition.

Do you have a favourite spot?

Although you get a great idea of the relaxed vibe of the home from these pictures, there's a short film (in French) over on The Socialite Family where you get to see how it all hangs together (and a glimpse of the lovely kitchen where Carrie developed some of her recipes for her books An American in Paris, Inside Chefs’ Fridges and Food with kids.  Well worth a look!

Such a lovely space. I'm a big fan of the simple white and wood look - it's so calming!

Have a lovely day!

PS If you're visiting Paris I can so recommend Hotel Henriette - I stayed there last autumn when I was in town for the launch of the French version of my Lagom book and was in design heaven!


  1. I love the stool with the pompoms on it - sweet.

  2. This definitely must see on display homes. Would love to see these physically.

  3. This is really easy to have the hack here and how to get unlimited gems in brawl stars is thing we all need to know here. Brawl stars is soft launched in some countries and it is yet to be released in many more countries.
