In September, not long after Maude arrived in Paris, she called me and said, “Mom, you would LOVE Alix!”
Alix is the mother of the boys Maude cares for, and as you would expect, Maude spends a lot of time with the family. “She’s a designer and she has the best taste,” Maude told me, “She has a product line too, and you can find her wares at Merci!”
Merci is one of the most stylish shops in Paris (it’s the one you seen in photos with the tiny red car in front), and definitely one of my happy places, so of course I wanted to know more. I emailed Alix, and she sent the link to her site, and then my jaw dropped because everything is so dang beautiful.
Alix designs gorgeous wares — porcelain light fixtures, dishes, candles, tumblers, and more — all handmade in France. And she sells them in a charming Paris shop (the kind you daydream about when the wanderlust kicks in).
The wares are also carried in shops across the world. (Maybe there’s one close to you!)
When Maude came home for Christmas, she brought me the Tuileries candle — a sweet gift from Alix. And oh my goodness, I am obsessed. Gorgeous to hold, gorgeous to look at, and the scent makes me catch my breath.
We were already so pleased about the adventures and growing experiences and adulting practice that Maude has enjoyed during her time in Paris, and you can imagine how over the moon we are that someone as talented as creative as Alix is her hostess.
I thought you’d enjoy getting a peek at Alix’s work too!
P.S. — A perfect day in Paris with kids.
