Paris isn't nearly as colorful as Berlin or London, but we do have our own Notting Hill-like street! La Rue Crémieux is one of the most Instagrammed streets in Paris and it was fun to see it in person in stead of on millions of Instagram shots. It's actually a very very regular and small street near Bastille. But with lots of potted plants and flowers, color and quirky details. Have a look:
As you can see, la Rue Crémieux was empty when I visited, but I've been told it's usually the place to be for fashionbloggers and selfie-stick tourists… There's also a small hostel-like hotel on Number Fifteen, called L'Hôtel Particulier, with double rooms starting at 80€.

If you would ignore the typical Parisian terracotta chimney pots, this could be Portobello Road in London:

It wasn't 5:43, but never mind, it's a cute detail of the Rue Crémieux:

And some more neutral hues, like pale green and white at Number Twelve:

Would you choose the yellow, pink, blue or this peachy blush house as your home?
