One of my favorite parts of our Europe trip was finding colorful spots in the wild and taking photos! Of the 4 cities we visited, Paris surprised me with color more than any other. So when I found out that one of my favorite color-loving brands, Mixbook, released a Paris photo book template, I knew we had to partner together to showcase this colorful city. I'm listing the 3 most colorful spots here and sharing how I displayed the photos in a beautiful Mixbook travel photo book.
1. Pigalle Basketball Court
My favorite colorful locations are the ones that seem to appear out of nowhere. They surprise and delight and make your jaw drop with just one look. The Pigalle basketball court is a retro technicolor surprise in the midst of an unsuspecting residential street. If you love color, design, graphics, or just sports in general, the Pigalle basketball court is a treat.
2. Rue Crémiuex
Stroll down a few blocks from the Gare De Lyon train station and you'll find the most charming and colorful pedestrian street, Rue Crémiuex. With houses and doors in every color of the rainbow, quaint window boxes, and bright bikes at every doorstep, Rue Cremieuex is a pastel-lover's dream.
Put on your cutest sneaks and head to Montmartre, one of the most colorful neighborhoods in the city. One catch - you'll need to climb some stairs and steep streets to get there, but I promise it will be worth it when you see the view from the top and the vibrant, ivy-covered buildings along the way.
The Photo Book
The Mixbook Paris theme, "J'adore Paris" designed by Molly Hatch, really makes the photos pop! The pink Paris map illustration and the hand-lettered French phrases are my favorite elements, and they're easy to add with Mixbook's editing tools. I'm pretty sure these travel photobooks will be the go-to holiday gifts this year. One for my parents, one for the grandparents, one for the future in-laws...the list goes on!
