I will be going to Paris again in May, and too bad that I’ve only discovered Hotel Henriette (via Remodelista) after booking my accommodation with one of the charmless budget hotel chain.

Paris is an absolutely beautiful but expensive city.

Situated close to the Mouffetard district (metro: Les Gobelins), the rooms at Hotel Henriette appear to be unbelievably affordable (single room starts at €69 per night; double room from €89 per night). It has 32 individually designed bedrooms and they are great examples of how thoughtful paint selections (think mustard layered against pastel) and simple furnishings are often more than enough to infuse charm and character to any space. Everything is très chic here.

Loads of bedroom images ahead, hope you find some ideas for your next bedroom remodelling!

Paris – The Decadent La Maison Favart

Favart 00

Continuing on my hunt for affordable accommodation for my Paris trip, but I found myself continue to be lured into looking at images of the luxurious hotel that are not within my budget!

Like this one, one of the top ranked Paris Hotel in TripAdvisor – La Maison Favart.

La Maison Favart is named after the famous Favart couple (founder of the Comic Opera in Paris). It is a beautiful building dated back to 1824 and was reinvested by  Architect Atelier Architects Atelier Jean-Luc Bras in collaboration with Exclusive Interiors.

I think every lady will love the interior of this hotel. It’s like a jewel box in the prettiest Ladurée macaroon hues. Delicious.

How could you not like this?

Paris – Hotel Fabric

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.
