I am going to France for a holiday in October!
Yes we have a bad habit of always planning a holiday in a short notice. I guess that will give us more motivation to plan, and more excitement look more forward to the trip.
But you know I love the modern French interior. Before even planning on the attractions or museum to visit, I just couldn’t wait to dive into researching on the hotels available in Paris.
And true enough – I found heaps of hipster boutique hotels that I really really drool over. Honestly, they are not within my budget for accommodation. But they are really too pretty to forget.
First of all, is this refreshing, willfully colorful hotel – Hôtel Fabric.
Located at the heart of fashionanle 11th arrondissement of Paris, in the Oberkampf district, the Fabric, which opened a year ago, is set in a former textile factory (hence the name – fabric!)
The hotel is designed by architect Vincent Bastie, and has 33 rooms in total. Appropriately for its origins, the 33 rooms make use of lots of different fabrics and patterns. Think high-backed headboard upholstered in colourful fabric against stripy walls.
The common area like the lobby lounge has more of a post-industrial vibe, with interesting architectural details like the exposed brick walls, unconcealed ducts, and large metal windows that bring in the natural light. In my opinion, the Parisians have really perfected to art of mixing furniture and accessories of different style and era to create the eclectic look that is so effortless. This is the space where you can admire the Eames chairs, opulent chandelier, industrial style hanging light, vintage storage trunk, and contemporary art all at the same time.
