Book Giveaway: Nichole Robertson’s Paris in Color

by Nichole Robertson

We have been fans of Nichole Robertson ever since we first discovered her blog, Little Brown Pen, many moons ago. She manages to capture details of our favorite city that render it accessible, touching, intimate — even to those who haven’t walked her streets, ogling marché produce and perfectly coordinated café chairs in many years. We’re delighted to be offering a copy of her latest book, Paris in Color, to one lucky reader today — simply leave a comment below and we’ll pick a random winner on June 29. Want an extra entry? Pin this post and leave a link to it below in a separate comment (to ensure you have two entries!) – Geneviève. UPDATE: We have now selected winner. Congratulations to Jessie K. from Nova Scotia!

In January 2009, I moved to Paris with my husband, and two young sons. Despite the damp cold and relentless gray, we enjoyed exploring our new neighborhood. One day, I noticed a few objects in a similar shade of red, and shot them. As I walked, I found other things I liked in that shade and photographed those as well. When I returned home and uploaded them to my blog, the response was, “more!”

I quickly became obsessed, and spent weeks singling out different shades. Searching for colors is a surprisingly democratic process, as it’s just as likely to appear on something spectacular (Notre Dame) as it is on something pedestrian (a trash can). I didn’t question whether the object was famous, old, or important, I just shot it. The serendipitous nature of the process meant that I never had a plan, and that was part of the fun.

She also does postcards and prints! These are from her Valentine’s set

About a year later, I realized I was taking the kind of photos of Paris that as a raging Francophile I wanted to see, but could never find. There are plenty of photos of the Eiffel Tower and sunsets over the Seine, but when I wasn’t in Paris I wanted to BE in Paris–on the streets, sitting at a café, peering into a cheese shop, admiring the light on the cobblestones, noticing a charming sign for a €10 bouquet of tulips. I didn’t want the dressed up, tourist version of Paris, I wanted the Converse and t-shirt Paris. The Paris you see when you step out of the shadows of the monuments.

I’m consistently drawn to the way color contrasts Paris’ neutral facades, the way layers of paint erode into a form of abstract art, and to the details that are often overshadowed by the Eiffel Tower and other iconic landmarks. And that is what the Paris Color Project is about.

To win a copy of Paris in Color, simply leave a comment below and we’ll pick a random winner on June 29. Want an extra entry? Pin this post and leave a link to it below in a separate comment (to ensure you have two entries!)

Oh, I would love to have this!!

Hi, I am new to your blog (via viki archers last post). I have subsribed via email. My husband tells me I am O.C.D when it comes to books about Paris and France- I would love Paris in colour to add to my collection and he wouldn’t be able to yell at me if I won it! Also, I have been longing to visit France most of my life- tried to get there last year for my 40th but finally this year I am travelling there with hubby and two small kids in tow- heres a challenge for you and it would help me- My youngest son has severe allergies to gluten, all dairy and soy. How can we navigate this. I know how to speak a little French but would be grateful for good resturants/cafes etc in at least in Paris. And how to ask about the ingredients. If you can help in any way? We leave at the start of september.xxCorrina T

Prettiest book of the year!

Brianne Chabassol

I have always felt I should have been born in Paris. Reading your blogs and winning this book would keep my soul satisfied until I finally am their <3

cover very cute

Wendy in Kennewick

I’ve been following Nicole’s beautiful blog for awhile and have been fascinated with her eye for color and lovely photos. I would love a copy of her book.

do I need an excuse for wanting a beautiful book on Paris?

a beautiful book!

Love Nichole Robertson’s work. Her photos inspired me on a recent trip to Paris. Thank you!

i would like to win

I have just recently discovered Little Brown Pen and find it utterly inspiring – it would be wonderful to win this!

Love it! This will make a great gift!!

As a travel photographer, I’m drawn to color everywhere I travel. I love that you took the concept above and beyond!

I love Nichole’s photograpy–it’s so evocative of Paris without being cliche.

A truly wonderful Book that brings Paris alive. We all love the architecture of Paris but this has introduced us to the spectacular colours of Paris and the simple pleasures that colour offers us.

What a treat!

Beautiful book, I love the work!

I love the pics.

I am so happy for Nichole ~ to have ‘Paris in Color’ at Shakespeare & CO., Musee Dorsay, and Anthropologie shops is a dream she deserves in every way.

Beautiful photos.

I am adoring that book cover!

I would so love to win this! My dream, from a very young age, has been to visit Paris and I’m closing in on age 40 (in August) and have still yet to go, would live vicariously through these pictures 🙂

Love how every single shot makes you smile with a memory of Paris. And really love her scooter photos.

Would LOVE to win this book. Everyone needs more Paris in their life…

I discovered Little Brown Pen through their Etsy site, and adore all the photos. Grouping them in color schemes just makes them all the more appealing, though I also love the set that is food themed!

It is, of course, more than pin-worthy:


Nichole’s work is so inspiring and always reminds me of time spent strolling the streets of Paris. She has an incredible eye for color and ability to get just the right photo to capture it! The beauty of Paris goes so far beyond the monuments and tourist sites and Nichole does a stunning job of capturing what you see when “step out of the shadows”.

Paris is my favourite place, this book looks beautiful, like it will take you to Paris through the images.

Malvina Beatrice

I’ve never been to Paris, having this book will probably make me feel closer. Love the colours!

Hip Paris Blog is usually the first email I open each day as it is sure to please and put me in a good mood–the sumptuous photos, the au courant commentary. I don’t consider myself a city person, but I love visiting Paris. Like many, I am happy just to wander. The Hip Paris Blog gives me the vicarious thrill of meandering there because it captures the je ne sais quoi that is quintessentially Parisian.

Can’t wait to read this book!

Would love this book seeing as I’ll be there in approx 16 hours!!

It’s been a year since I was in Paris. I just loved it and would adore to go back. Nichole’s beautiful photos are a lovely reminder of the essence of this fabulous city.

Paris – tu me manque! I would love to win this beautiful book, as I can;’t find anywhere to buy it in tiny New Zealand!

I would love to win this book- it looks absolutely fabulous! Maybe one day I’ll get to visit Paris in person rather than wistfully dreaming about it whilst pouring over all of the gorgeous photographs haha.

Nichole’s photos are stunning… everything is perfect, colour, tones, composition… amazing!

This book will let me dream I’m in Paris until my next trip

I’ve been dying to buy this book for my new apartment. The perfect coffee table book!

I fear I have a Little Brown Pen problem….calendar above my desk at work, framed photos hanging in our home, notecards in my desk drawer. I think I need the book to complete the set!

… wonderful photos, love her style very much and would be glad to win such a fabulous book !

Wow, love it, love the idea of sorting my travel photographs by colour story. This book just looks divine! Jennifer

I would love to own this book – I am moving to Paris in 5 months, and this book is just what I need to give me a Paris fix untill I leave:)

This is exactly the book I want to read, and reread and dream with. Thank you for offering it as a giveaway!

I would LOVE to win this, so fingers crossed…am obsessed with Paris, photography AND colour.

Lovely post as always.

The same sights capture my eye, but I haven’t the eye to capture the sights. Nicole seems to have that ability. Thanks for sharing.

What a perfect way to get lost in the city!

Would LOVE to win this book! I’m travelling to Paris for the very first time in September, my dream travel destination is about to become a reality with the love of my life!

Such beautiful work! I am going to Paris for the first time in December and am so looking forward to experiencing all this beauty firsthand.

Great giveaway. Nichole’s book has been on my wish list since it was published. I love her work and would really like to see this on on my coffee table. Thank you.

I hope I win! I need a beautiful book like this on my coffee table.

love this blog, hopefully should be haeding to paris in october can’t wait to check out some of the recommendations.

Been following her blog and yours for quite sometime now! Fabolous! <3

Fabulous idea. I find Paris can be so elegantly neutral in its colours but there are times when I am hit by a wonderful rush of colour.

Black never goes out of fashion – but nor does colour as the fantastic Nichole Robertson proves in this book.
Having visited in May I’m having serious withdrawals from the beautiful city – this book would help ease the loss.

Paris – je me manque!
