Luxury Inspiration / FlipKey
I don’t know about you, but I am not a big desk person. Ever since I was in high school I’ve always clung to the kitchen table – I like to feel there’s space in front of me, I suppose. So anywhere I’m to stay I’d definitely want a big table where I can spread out.
This place in the Luxembourg/Latin Quarter in Paris isn’t so much luxury, but welcoming and cozy. The table is big enough for my working space, the chair and lamp is great for reading, and I just love the soft grey color palette.
Meanwhile, this place in the 3ème is a good reminder of how important natural light is to me while I’m working. If I can’t be outside, I may as well pretend I need to keep the sun out of my eyes.
That same apartment has this lovely balcony. While this week has been a brutal reminder that winter is coming in full force, I can still dream about warmer days and creating my own private cafe. It’s still working from a table!
After having bit of back trouble when I first started freelancing from learning to set limits of chair time, I find myself yearning for a standing desk. This island table is the perfect size to spread out and I love that I could easily move from sitting to standing. The Louvre/Chatelet location of the apartment is super central too.
But if I was truly going to splurge I’d go for this ‘Alesia Villa‘. I love the natural light, greenery (you don’t get much nature in Paris) and style. Or maybe I’d save this place to have a big party to celebrate my latest breakthrough! But if I was working here, I like that it’s a bit outside the major hustle and bustle of Paris.
What are your top qualities you’d look for in a place you’d work/stay?
