Welcome to the house of my novel~
partially set in Paris.
It's just a few blocks from our apartment so easy access.
And right on the Champ de Mars.
I love the arched doorway in grapevine relief,
the mini columns and the heads also draped in vines.
I've had it in mind for some time
but on this last trip I took some photos so I'd have them for description.
Notice the wild cat licking a leg above.
And the pine cones over the window...
and in the corners.
It's actually a couple of apartment buildings
but in this job, I get to take creative license.
It also happens to be the home of the Cesar Academie
(of which a friend has been nominated for an award-
but that's another blog post).
The backside looks right out on...
the Eiffel Tower.
Imagine having this as your living room view.
That's what I did so (besides the tenants of the building)
my characters are the lucky ones.
