Bonjour, mes amies!
Ever wander around your town or city and think “For the love of Crayola, why is every house white, beige, or gray when there are thousands of other colors to choose from?”
I mean, honestly there’s no reason why our homes shouldn’t be a rainbow of colors as unique as the people who live inside.
That’s why my favorite street in Paris isn’t one filled with shops or museums, but one filled with color.
Rue Cremieux is a pedestrian street located in Paris’ 12th Arrondissement, just a block and a half off of the Seine. Each home is painted in pastel hues, from pink to mint and even a cheerful lemon yellow. Look closely and you’ll find charming little details like a hand-shaped bronze door knocker, or a hand painted cat leaping toward birds over number 28.
Rue Cremiuex is Paris’ version of Portobello Road in London, or Charleston’s Rainbow Row. If you’re into words like “Instagrammable” I’d definitely say that Rue Cremieux is Instagrammable AF. The women on my last Paris trip were lucky enough to have a gorgeous day to stroll the street (showing off their newly purchased scarves, of course).
More pastel-colored eye candy? Sure!

p.s. This is a real street with real residents. Please be mindful of that when visiting Rue Cremieux. Take notice to some homes which have posted “no photography” signs in the window, and be sure to respect the property and plants of others when taking photos.
