La Vie a Paris: Parisian Living in Vancouver featuring Faubourg, Joue Design and PAPYRUS

Summer is nearly upon us, and naturally, we’re daydreaming of escaping the city. We may not be privy to the hustle and bustle of L’Avenue des Champs Élysées, but thanks to FaubourgJoue Design and PAPYRUS, we’re able to enjoy authentic Parisian living right here in Vancouver. From original watercolour throw pillows to delicate, artisanal macarons, these handcrafted, Parisian-inspired goods will transport you the Eiffel Tower – without the cost of a plane ticket. We have a feeling this may just be the je ne sais quoi you’ve been looking for.

A Parisian adventure just wouldn’t be complete without the macaron. Pop by Faubourg a Lavender Earl Grey treat – we bet you can’t eat just one.
