I’m subscribed to a fantastic newsletter called Jetsetter. It’s made by the same people who do Fab.com. Jetsetter is their travel division and they find and review the cream of the crop of hotels.
A little while ago they featured the unbelievably gorgeous La Maison Champs Élysées in Paris. The hotel is minimally decorated and the rooms are all in white, and then in contrast to that there is the dramatic Cigar Lounge, all in charcoal and black.
17 of the 57 rooms are designed by Maison Margiela, and they also did the restaurant, reception, cigar lounge and bar.
And if you manage to peel yourself out of this exquisite hotel you’re in for a treat because it is situated right in the heart of Paris’ Golden Triangle, a shopping hot spot.
Don’t know about you but I think I’m going to be dusting off my old piggy bank so that I can pay this place a visit!
