3 Favourite kid's shops - Paris

I love Paris, but that is probably pretty easy to work out! Here are three of my favourite kid's boutiques in Paris... all feature a typically French design aesthetic - soft muted colours, retro 'revived' furniture and boho styling.

1. Pic Nidouille - a new store on the left bank of Paris, a short stroll from the Sorbonne. Lots of old school functional (it really was old school!) furniture, soft toys, wall hangings and a gorgeous French font tying the look together.

Check out this wonderful shop at 22, rue des Ecoles, 75505 Paris. 
Metro Maubert Mutualite.

2. Lillibulle - A treasure trove of kooky kid's clothing, decor, books, stationary and mostly hand-crafted soft toys, all crammed into a teeny tiny store just down from the Metro Ledru-Rollin. I loved the Clemence G toys, wall decorations and t-shirts, Oilily bags and suitcases, and the wonderful Fifi Mandirac cards, badges and writing paper. Check out their blog here!

3, rue de la Forge Royale, 75011 Paris
Metro Avenue Ledru - Rollin

3. Serendipity - Pre-loved furniture revamped in a refined colour palette that the French do so well - dark berry colours, khaki, greys and mousey browns. Simple puff comforters, silver printed cushions, Minilabo rabbits and hand-crafted felt wall decorations create an understated but very chic French children's boudoir.
