Serge Gainsbourg + Paris {moodboard}

You know I love Paris and I know that many of you love this city too. And even more of you might be dreaming to go there one day...  Yesterday on Facebook someone was 'teasing' me by telling me he went to Paris this weekend (It is the weekend of Maison et Objet) He also added a link to a French chanson of Serge Gainsbourg on my wall to listen to. I fell a bit in love again with Serge Gainsbourg when I was in Paris this summer.


For the first time in my live I bought a beautiful real picture in a gallery in Le Marais. A picture of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. Made by the photographer who also did the shoot for their album in 1969. Shot au bord de Seine (on the rivers of the Seine) some days after the real photoshoot....

I think it was a bit love at first sight with this picture because I could not forget it and before leaving Paris I went back to the gallery to buy it. I think music is a great thing that can really bring back memories and atmospheres ... and listening to French songs is bringing back the feeling I have while being in Paris that I so love.


I recently framed the picture I bought and thought it would be cool to add some more Serge Gainsbourg to my home, so I started to collect a few images from that area to be printed later on. Aren't they gorgeous together.

Here are some 'Parisian' songs for you to listen to and to dream about Paris... Serge Gainsbourg and this typical 'cheesy' one de Michel Fugain   Enjoy your weekend.. I will do some more painting around the house... but I would love to hear what your favorite French song is !

Well as we're on the Serge subject, I absolutely adore La Chanson de Prevert, a real treat for the ears and the heart.

I love the photo & am a tough envious. Have you seen the film Gainsbourg, which is also out on DVD. It's a "must see" for fans of Gainsbourg, of which I am one. Jane Birkin's distinctive relaxed style is aslo to be admired. She is definitely bien dans sa peau!

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

PS not tough but TOUCH.....I've had a frantic morning and am a touch stressed too!

Jadyn said...

Mooie fotos's! Ik kan me voorstellen dat ze je niet los wilden laten...en mijn favoriete Franse muziek is van hun dochter Charlotte Gainsbourg!

Groetjes en fijn weekend,

Serge Gainsbourg is definitely the best :o)
My favorites from him: Je t'aime moi non plus, L'anamour...
Beautiful pics, so alive! We feel so much love between them!
And yes, Paris is great, especially when it's so sunny like today (yeah!).

Hey there, do you know the song of Charles Trenet: Que reste-t-il-de nos amours? This song has been used in the movie Something's gotta give. A very romantic movie but also nice to see for the interior of the beach house.

Fijne avond nog!

I am right back in Paris in the late seventies when Birkin was the provocative "it" girl of the days and Gainsbourg the voice of a generation. I love the style and the mood they bring back, well done !

Hi Desiree, I'm french, so I have too many songs to share only one of them ! but, if you like Serge G, you will probably like also Benjamin Biolay (actually, I didn't know his music 'til last week-end!). Love "de beaux souvenirs" (some beautiful memories), a perfect song to get with my family pictures.
I'm a fan of your blog!
