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 !
