Fabulous Reads: Paris Made by Hand

Exciting news - Pia Jane Bijkerk has released her very first book, Paris Made by Hand featuring the very best in Parisien boutiques and handcrafted goods - all taken from the blackbook of a talented stylist.

Consider this your insiders guide to fifty of Paris' best boutiques and studios where stylists and decorators find the chic and unique. The book features charming vignettes and products that will have you looking at flights to Paris...

I loved the blend of old and new used throughout, antiques juxtaposed with modern, graphic patterns. This book is dedicated to the 'fait de main' or handmade movement in Paris and the notion that there is a great value in craftsmanship and artistry that can never be replicated or replaced by an assembly line.

The book is beyong charming, no doubt you will be as smittened as I was at first glance.
