A Shabby Chic Window in Paris

Paris. It's the city of lights. For many, the city of love too.

When I think of Paris I think of movies I've seen. 'Moulin Rouge', 'Amelie', 'Before Sunset'. Quirky and romantic, and a little bit mysterious.

It's a mood that this lovely print captures with its photo of a window overlooking the Eiffel Tower. What a view to wake up to in a hotel room!

Of course, it's the iconic tower that says 'Paris', but the attractive arched window with peeling paint and the ornate opening mechanism (hmmm, there's surely some technical term for that) along with those sheer floral print curtains is also very evocative of a French hotel somehow.

FenĂȘtre sur Paris
Fenetre sur Paris is available from Allposters.com


I think you'll agree that this is also a sensational work of photography. It creates drama with those strong contrasts in the interior, the sky and the architecture. The detail is so sharp too. It works perfectly as a black and white art print.

I've tried to find out more about the photographer, Mauricio Hellerdani, but the man is less well known than his Fenêtre sur Paris and is something of a mystery.

The photographic poster is available on AllPosters as a 19.5 by 25.5 inch art print, and of course you can opt to have it framed if you wish, or can choose it laminated, mounted or on canvas. Whatever way you present this one, it's sure to be an eye-catching artwork on your wall.
