Bonjour - Cecile Boston's gorgeous French-inspired retail store in Albert Park

Eclectic details

Love the shelves of French ceramics in neutral tones

There REALLY is nothing more cheerful and smile-inducing than a heartfelt 'Bonjour!'  in a genuine French accent - and that is exactly what greets every visitor to Cecile Boston's fittingly named shop, Bonjour, in Albert Park!

After seeing her fabulous home last week... it will come as no surprise to see that Cecile's shop is equally picture perfect.   Bonjour is styled like a Provincial treasure trove - on entering you really do feel like you've just walked into a shop in the Marais!

Since opening just a few months ago (in November last year), Cecile has worked tirelessly to source a unique collection of  pieces from Europe as well as local suppliers.  Her varied product range includes stunning European ceramics and homewares, classic ladies fashion, antiques, jewelery and some truly special finds for the little ones!  So many beautiful things under one roof - many exclusive to Bonjour.  Cecile says it all  - 'I only sell what I love !' (again, best imagined in her fabulous French accent!)
