It’s no secret that I love a good colorful house portrait in the city: there’s just something about a well-kept facade amidst the chaos of crowded city streets that appeals to me. So Rue Cremieux was my favorite find on my recent trip to Paris: it’s a completely surprising little lane in the Bastille neighborhood, one of those gems that you would be so easy to just walk right by if you’re not paying attention.
Not only is it lined with carefully positioned cobblestones, accented with tiny urban gardens and colored shuttered, and painted a vivid array of colors, the houses boast tons of quirky details. I think my favorite might be the subtle painting of a cat leaping from window to window!
