Arty Hotels

Art defines the design of hotels.

Paintings, drawings on the walls, precious fabrics as tapestry … Among the growing number of boutique hotels in the capital, a good number of establishments have built an original identity: that of a hotel by a designer, where art is predominant.

More than just somewhere to stay, some hotels are veritable works of art. Frescoes, canvases and motifs on the walls, bespoke furniture, sketches, etc.  Art at the heart of the conception of these establishments.
 ‘As in couture, where harmony is created in a puzzle of inspiration, where the atmosphere of our time feeds on elements from the past, where modernity lives the tradition of the present …’. Christian Lacroix adapted the world of haute couture to devise the decoration of the Hôtel du Petit Moulin. Fabrics, wall coverings and motifs decorate the 17 individually styled bedrooms – like many different views of the Marais district.
At the hotel Le Crayon, the young artistic decorator Julie Gauthron used her passion for drawing and second-hand markets to create the interior of the establishment. Each of the 26 rooms has its own particular character and is furnished with customized pieces of furniture or those sourced from second-hand markets. The great originality of this boutique hotel remains the diversity of styles and colours that decorate each room and which make this place a veritable patchwork. As for the most surprising room … ‘Exquise Esquisse’, whose walls are papered with drawings carried out by … the decorator’s children!
is predominant.

Hôtel Notre-Dame

A view that rivals that of the Champs-Élysées, the Eiffel Tower or the Tuileries Gardens: that of Notre-Dame Cathedral and the river Seine. And it is this wonderful view that the Hôtel Notre Dame offers its guests. The decoration of this boutique hotel, situated in a 400-year-old building, was carried out by the celebrated French couturier Christian Lacroix. Flamboyantly coloured interiors with furniture in fine fabrics and walls decorated with large printed motifs, etc.  Blue velvet, a carpet imitating the flagstones of the Middle Ages, marble, slate, stone and beams of the period decorate the hotel’s 26 rooms. This little neoclassical gem has without doubt the stamp of haute couture.

Bellechasse

Situated in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, the hotel Le Bellechasse pays tribute to the intellectual and artistic scene that previously flourished here. This historical heritage inspired French couturier Christian Lacroix to think about the design of the place. The result? A neoclassical gem that takes its originality from a multitude of trompe-l'œil and printed motifs – on the walls and even sometimes on the ceiling! The decorator has even incorporated elements of haute couture (buttons, fabric, jewellery, etc.) into the interior decor. Each bedroom has a Parisian theme (‘Saint-Germain’, ‘Tuileries’, ‘Mousquetaires’) or an exotic theme (‘Patchwork Persan’).
The unique charm of this boutique hotel stems from the multiplicity of styles displayed here – including on the 4th floor, where the modern design contrasts with the other styles. On the lower ground floor, guests are served breakfast in a ‘garden’ of printed carnations (the couturier’s favourite flower), under a magnificent glass roof through which daylight shines.
