Hôtel Thoumieux, Paris
Every person gets dressed in clothes that reflect their personality and they also decorate and design their homes according to their tastes. For example I like animal patterns, but I would never wear them because they do not represent me, but I admit I saw other people wearing them beautifully and looking spectacular. This is the same with home design – some homes can look like belonging to the baroque style, but they look great nonetheless. Maybe you wouldn’t dare do this at home, but you might want to experiment a different look when travelling and when you have to stay in a hotel room. This is the Hôtel Thoumieux, Paris, France. What is striking about this hotel interior is its unusual design, the way in which different styles, fabrics and colours that are apparently totally mismatching, can stay next to each other and look great in an almost crazy combination.
The interior design of this hotel is the work of three designers: India Madhavi, Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak. It is absolutely amazing to see how latest technology gadgets like flat screen TV sets can stay next to art deco style furniture in a blood red room that also has a faux animal skin thrown on the bed.
Flowery wallpaper comes in combination with a checkered floor and everything is completed with some gold home accessories like mirrors and table lamps. Nothing is too much and all the rooms and also the lobby, the hallway and the restaurant are richly decorated.
