Rose Bakery at La Maison Rouge

La Maison Rouge is one of the smaller, less traveled galleries in Paris. Which is why I like it. It has a little more personality and a less strict curatorial team than the bigger ones. It's a non-profit.

Most Parisians already know the two Rose Bakery's, rue des Martyrs (9th) and Debelleyme Street (3rd).

It might seem that setting up an English bakery in Paris would be mad, a certain failure. Surely a city stuffed with patisseries full of perfect little tartes au citron is hardly in need of Eccles cakes? Not so, as it turns out, and as Rose Carrarini (who is English) and her husband Jean-Charles (who is French) have proved. They opened Rose Bakery in Paris in 2002. From the beginning they've had queues out of the door.

This time, supported by the decorator-designer Emilie Bonaventure, three times a year, visitors can explore the fleeting scenery, designed by be-attitude. Every season, its decoration and limited edition items will be reinvented.

From October 23rd
