BEST OF 2014: PARIS’S TOP 10

Los Angeles was the capitol of the culture in 2014 but Paris remains one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Old cafés, beautiful historical places, amazing stores, nice walks…

Here are ten of my favorite events and places of the year:

1. Church of Saint Sulpice

On the right inside the entrance, there is the Chapel of the Angels with two beautiful frescoes made by Eugène Delacroix: Jacob Wrestling with the Angel and Heliodorus driven from the temple.
2 rue Palatine – 75006 Paris

5. Chez Nenesse

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Paris. You feel like you are in the countryside in the middle of Le Marais, and the food is excellent.

8.  Decorum: Carpets and tapestries by artists at Musée d’Art Moderne

This exhibition featured a hundred rugs and tapestries created by modern (Francis Bacon, Pablo Picasso) as well as contemporary artists (Dewar & Gicquel, Vidya Gastaldon). The London based artist Marc Camille Chaimowics designed the exhibition in collaboration with architect Christine Ilex Beinemeier. A beautiful show!
