A NEW HOTEL IN THE MARQUIS’ MANSION

Chic black living room with marble fireplace via @thouswellblog

In an old mansion on one of the most fashionable streets in Paris, Michele Bönan infused his contemporary-classic fusion in an eighteenth-century mansion-turned-hotel. This former home of the Marquis de La Fayette survived Haussman’s redevelopment and has a rich history serving as the home and stables for royalty and Parisian elite. The home has now reopened as a boutique hotel that still feels like a chic private home thanks to Bönan’s direction. In the hotel lounge below, the black and white palette sets a sophisticated scene with black velvet banquettes and built-in bookshelves. You may recognize this vignette from my favorite stone fireplaces post – the white marble sets a clean contrast with the walls. I also love the touch of gold introduced by the brass sculpture on the mantel…

I love this vignette of a bust framed by a mid-century arc sconce – it’s playful yet not too studied.

Mirrored paneling opens up one of the suite living rooms, with playful red stripes moving from a curtain border to the carpet. Again in this vignette, mid-century lighting and simple, contemporary seating brings a sense of modernity to the room.
