Editions de Paris is a series of books on Parisian interiors by a Japanese publisher. I found them tucked away on a bookshelf at Sonospace bookstore in Qingdao. Before I left China I made to sure to buy as many of them as I could afford – they’re usually 28USD, but I got them for 35RMB each (that’s about 5USD, fyi). The perspective is quirky and charming and the homes, offices and people featured are effortlessly chic – so effortless that I don’t even need to read the Chinese text, of which every fiftieth character is legible to me (this…man…home…that). If you want a little more info, read up on the series over at apartementtherapy.
