Here is another post for you folks who plan to travel to Paris soon. And for all of you, who can't travel to Paris anytime soon. I am taking you to a very cool and pretty new patisserie on the left bank of Paris. In the vibrant sixth arrondissement you will encounter a new type of patisserie. It is unlike the traditional Parisian patisseries: it is cool, it is designy and very inviting for leisurely spent hours. But Colorova is way more than just a patisserie. You can enjoy the artfully prepared sweet treats by chef Guillaume Gil, but you can also enjoy a fine lunch during the week, tea in the afternoon and sweet and savory brunch on the weekends.
The food and the service are impeccable. But this is Happy Interior Blog and I can't help but talk about the ravishing interior design.It starts with the big glass front that elicits views from passengers into the open space with wooden furniture. The counter is very cool and reminds me of the game Jenga, the lighting is spacey above the counter and industrial in the other corners. The retro Smeg fridge in pale turquoise sets a colour accents as do the fabulous armchairs with vibrant upholstery made of Tunisian woven textiles. An indoor window opens the view into the kitchen slash food lab while the backwall is wallpapered with a bold geometric pattern and colourful art ties the whole visual concept together.
With other words: Colorova is a treat for your palatine and design-loving eye. You can find Colorova on Facebook and in Paris at the address Rue de l'Abbé-Grégoire 47 in the sixth arrondissement. Enjoy and happy Monday!
