Two of my favorite things

When I saw these photos of the IKEA advertisements in the Paris Metro, my heart fluttered and my knees felt weak. These are two of my favorite places: spots perfect for casual afternoons, people watching, and feeling instantly happier. When I spent my summer in Paris, I would often ride the Metro around town and discover hidden and beautiful places to sit, eat, and shop. It was a perfect way to quickly and conveniently absorb Parisian life. As for IKEA, I find myself going there on weekends to simply walk around and look at their displays. It’s one of my favorite places to relieve stress and rearrange my thoughts. Check out these amazing IKEA installations at recognizable Metro stops.
