is a French all-around creative, working in graphic design, interior design, photography, writing, blogging and coding. She’s been running her beautiful for the past seven years and , her project about French weddings, for the past two years. Overall, she loves the freedom of being her own boss. Eleonore lives in the 11th arrondissement of Paris (same as me!), which is a vibrant area with designers, great cafés and forward-thinking restaurants. There are also many artisan workshops and brick buildings with beautiful hidden courtyards. When Eleonore bought this apartment two years ago, it was in rough shape, so they destroyed everything and rebuilt it from scratch. From there, Eleonore was able to put her degree in interior design to use. The goal was to create a warm atmosphere by drawing attention to the natural light and creating a space that wasn’t too girly (though she’s not so convinced that she achieved the last part!). Merci beaucoup, Eleonore! —
