Paris and New York City: A Love Story

Patisserie and Pastrami

4 years ago, I had a short break between tv gigs and spent a summer in France.  To me, France was like one giant pause button in the middle of Europe – I lost all track of time, I consumed troves of art and music, and I fell heartbreakingly, irrevocably in love with French culture (and a few older men).  I like to joke that France is my spiritual home, but – the truth is – I’ll never master the French pout and red wine gives me hives.

And so my heart will always have two homes: one in Paris and one in New York City – the city where I can count on a chorus of cat calls from any construction site, where an egg and cheese from the bodega is my soul food, and where cars honking make me feel safe.

Whether you’ve visited either city or just like to fantasize about a walk along the Seine or a kiss on the Brooklyn Bridge…I think you’ll enjoy some of my favorite designs from Vahram Muratyan’s book Paris vs New York: A Tally of Two Cities below (available here on Amazon)!
