// PARIS // 10e // 


a flower forward cafe

Part flower shop, part coffee shop, PEONIES is low hanging… flowers for the blogger type. The space is built for instagram with aesthetic deep green tiles contrasting with millennial pink terrazzo. It’s a store that has a solid sense of self, and of its target consumer. The cups are custom made and on brand with the pink and green color scheme. The baked goods in the pastry case are topped with florals, even the avocado toast (of course there’s avocado toast) is adorned with pretty petals.

One cute spot where you can get your caffeine fix, get some work done, get brunch with a friend, pick up a bouquet or pick your own stems to make your own. What else could you possibly need?
