My stay at the beautiful Hotel Henriette, Paris

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? I'm still reeling from a magical weekend in Paris where HarperCollins France organised a tour to celebrate the launch of my Lagom book in French. My days included an inspiring meet-up with bloggers and journalists at La Trésorerie, a book signing at Galeries Lafayette and a soirée at Nordik Market  - I have to say, it all feels like a dream now! The weekend was made to feel even more special by Hotel Henriette - a small boutique hotel with a chic pied-à-terre feel tucked away in a quiet cobbled street in the 13th arrondissement. Designed by former fashion editor Vanessa Scoffier, the entire space is decorated with second hand pieces, mid-century finds, and fabulous art deco light fittings set against a back drop of deep, rich hues, soft greys and pretty florals (oh la la!). It's somewhere I've been wanting to stay ever since this post - and I have to say it was even lovelier in real life! Of course, I had to snap every detail so that I could take ideas home with me, and share the space with you! Here's a sneak peek...

Isn't it just the most beautiful place?

Vanessa spent over 15 months trawling Paris flea markets to find pieces for each room and the communal areas. The good news is, that this means if you look hard enough, you could achieve the same look in your own home on a budget - hurrah! Here's a quick guide:

Bedroom - Gubi Grasshopper Pendant in grey,  source pretty handmade floral pillow cases here, this is a great place to pick up vintage school chairs and antique mirrors. This gold flower wall sconce is similar. Conservatory: source a similar seagrass basket here, vintage tripod table. Sitting room / reception: mid-century credenza, Togo ottoman in yellow alcantara by Ligne Roset, pick up a set of vintage cranes here.

You can see more of the rooms (all of which have been decorated in their own unique way) here.  

Thank you so much to HarperCollins France for believing in my book and organising the trip (what a fantastic, genuine, kind group of people you are!), La Trésorerie, Nordik Market and Galeries Lafayette for being so accommodating, to all the wonderful people I met over my time there, of whom, sadly, there are too many to mention by name, and Hotel Henriette for a memorable stay!

Have a great start to the week!

N.B. This is not a sponsored post - I just wanted to share this little gem of a hotel with you in case you're ever in Paris!


  1. WOW! I love this hotel!!! I take note of it for my next trip to Paris. Next year (May 2018) I have a scientific meeting in Orleans, and surely I will stay a weekend in Paris.... I hope I could stay there!
    Have a wonderful week, Niki! Cheers from Argentina!

  2. You must stay here if your in Paris María! :) Have a wonderful week yourself! x

  3. oh my! Love all the finer details, what a beautiful place to stay x

  4. Hello Niki ! I bought your book last week (French edition) and I really like it so far. I'm trying to not read it too fast since there are a few things I would like to apply and my boyfriend is already complaining ^^ We already decided to leave our shoes in the hallway in a basket as soon as we get home, instead of keeping them for 2 hours before thinking of the slippers... One change at a time :P

  5. How fun to hear Lise! Thank you! There's a saying in Sweden which I was reminded of when I read your comment - 'a journey of a thousand miles always begins with a single step' - :) PS I'm trying to be better at asking (I do find it awkward, but I've heard it's important!) - if you have the time I'd love it if you could write a quick review at the source you bought it from (if online of course!), I'd be one happy girl if so. Thanks again, and keep me updated about how you get on!

  6. Wonderful. Would love info on the geometric wallpaper.

  7. Hi Niki, looks like a nice place to stay. Stylish, retro and I love your images ;-)

  9. The photos you took are amazing Niki! I was there last year and I loved the hotel so much!
