I have no idea why, it just happened. I came across the magnificent Hotel Henriette and fell head over heals in love. My obsession for this city has begun and this place is on my hit list as well as a few others. I cant tell you how much I am lusting over this Hotel’s decor. Located in the centre of Paris, just 10 minutes walk from the Latin quarter in a small cobblestoned street close to Mouffetard district.
The hotel has thirty two individually designed rooms. A bohemian and intimate house, full of emotions, with a soul; a story. Oh gosh, why wouldn’t you want to stay!? Once you see the interior you will be just as in love with Henriette as I am.
My second find was Hotel Panache, it was the sight of a headboard, thats the problem when your obsessed with interiors, everything goes out of the window and you cant think of anything else, and that headboard is one of mine. Hotel Panache sits on the corner of rue du Faubourg Montmartre and rue Geoffroy Marie. A bubbling delight day and night not far from the Grands Boulevards and at the crossroads of trends and multiple destinations.
All good things come in threes, and if you’re going to flash that mustard velvet at me then I am going to fall hook line and sinker for you, what a glorious hotel the Hoxton Paris is. Opening in August 2017 and what a place. The neighbourhood is packed with food, Parisian style and historical architecture. Cobbled streets house open-air markets and stylish boutiques, and by night, the area transforms, buzzing with busy bistros. We’re in easy walking distance of Le Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, and the pretty streets of Le Marais.
So with the hotel sorted and booked get yourself in the mood with music and yep I’ve done that whilst drooling over Parisian life, apartments and fashion. I’ve even dreamt that i am suddenly fluent in french now that is commitment for my new obsession. Ok have you got your spotify ready and prepared, I hope you enjoy.
