Maximalist designer Luke Edward Hall has concocted the interiors for Paris’s Hotel Les Deux Gares, which are imbued with an alchemic potion of floral prints, bold stripes and vivid colour-blocked walls.
Located in the city’s 10th arrondissement, the Paris hotel has taken over five floors of a building set between the Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est.
Guests can admire views of the capital from the comfort of their beds inside the colourful bedroom suites – which start from €98 per night – which Hall has decked out in contrasting shades of heritage green, pastel blue and soft pink. Candy-striped headboards add a hit of pattern, while bathrooms are drenched in primary colours via glazed subway tiles, offering their own vibrant experience.
Communal spaces meanwhile mix art deco heritage pieces with patterned wallpaper and chevron marble floors, in a mishmash the hotel describes as ‘English chic with French soul’.
For a taste of French cuisine, and a glass of natural wine, guests can head to Cafe les Deux Gares, which fully embraces the classic bistro atmosphere with its bent wood chairs, striped banquettes and marble countertops.
