my scandinavian home: The perfect boutique design hotel for a surprise?

The perfect boutique design hotel for a surprise?

Tuesday, 16 June 2015

Did I tell you that the man and I have made a deal to surprise one another with a weekend away this year? It could be anything from camping, or an overnight stay in the world's smallest hotel to a long weekend in a beautiful Riad in Marrakesh (here's me hoping!!). Naturally, my travel radar has gone into over drive (cue hours on Pinterest). And then I came across Hotel Henriette Rice Gauche in the Mouffetard district of Paris. Hotel Henriette is a new boutique hotel with thirty-two individually designed bedrooms created by interior designer Vanessa Scoffier, as well as a vintage winter garden and a library. If you're looking for bedroom inspiration, this post is for you! Better still, if you're going to Paris, could this be your home from home? Let's take a peek inside....

What do you think? A good hotel for a surprise weekend with P?!

The most inspiring thing about these rooms (for me) is the paint. I thought geometric / half painted walls were reserved for a modern-cool look. But seeing the bedroom painted half and half in pastel green and pink makes me think it could be the route to a pretty, romantic boudoir. I'm of course loving the vintage finds and retro pieces too.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Other dream hotels on my hit list include this little piece of paradise in the Philippines,  and a beautiful oasis on the Greek island of Mykonos. *sigh*, imagine?!

More bedroom inspiration here and here.

Have a wonderful day!

PS I'm on a whirl wind tour of New York right now for my book - so exciting! Things are a little hectic so I apologise in advance if my posts appear a little later than usual...or perhaps not at all on certain days!


  1. I too really like the modern cool vibe softened by the vintage finds and fabrics. I think I need to go antique-ing today. Thanks for the inspiration once again. Oh and I love the terrace with the glass walls and ceiling! I would sit out there reading a book and drinking tea!

  2. This boutique hotel is so nice!! It's a pity I just came back from Paris a few days ago! ;-)
    (anyway I loved my hotel as well, have a look at Hotel Caron, really nice, and in the marvellous Marais district ;-)

  3. The color-blocking for the paint could easily be done in a home. I like the idea of pop designs in soft tones. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This hotel looks brilliant, very European and reminds me of home. Such a shame there isn't anything like it in Sydney as its an easy look and feel to achieve.

  5. I love this hotel and would love to stay here! (We couldn't do it this time because the rooms only go up to 2 people and we are 5.) Have a wonderful time in NYC! We NEED to grab that coffee when you get back and catch up! Love from CPH!
