le marianne, paris ... boutique hotel style

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, February 01, 2015

Just off the Champs Elysees and Avenue Montaigne, Le Marianne Hotel is more like a very chic pied-à-terre.


This graceful Haussmann period building sets the scene.


Bedrooms with stylish dipped dyed curtains and smart colour palette of mustard yellows and charcoal.


Furniture with elegant lines and the latest in lighting design.


Like any stylish boutique hotel, it is all in the detail.


And just so Parisian.


london's boutique hotel style

Deirdre Brennan - Tuesday, October 14, 2014

San Domenico House,
in my very favourite part of London, was a great find recently.
Both the architecture and orange brick are synonymous with certain areas of London and I have always loved both. This boutique hotel is tucked in behind Kings Road and Sloane Street and only a short walk to Sloane Square.


There is probably no further criteria for me on my hunt for accommodation in London, apart from of course, the style and ambiance of the interior.  I have discovered that I can really only relate to classic cosy English town or country house style.  Not contemporary minimalist which is prevalent and extremely uninviting !!


Even Kit Kemp with her Firmdale Hotels of which there are many in London, does classic English style with a modern edge, to perfection. If I am in London I like to feel that I am living there, not staying in a hotel .. if you know what I mean !!


The first of the boutique hotels in London to make one feel as if you were actually staying with friends was Blake's and it remains an icon.
