Rich colours combine with classic shapes at Paris’ Hôtel de La Boétie, which sumptuously layers styles, eras and influences.
London-based designer Beata Heuman oversaw the Parisian hotel’s interiors, retaining existing elements of the building, such as its vintage reception sign, and adding to these with a palette of fresh colours. Heuman describes her approach as a mix of ‘restraint and exuberance’.
Rooms at Hôtel de La Boétie start from €200 per night, and many feature patterned rugs pinned to the wall in place of traditional headboards. These are paired with bright green carpet, pink satin bedclothes, and pastel-tinted bathrooms with retro checkerboard floors.
Heuman has made a few other quirky additions to the hotel, which is located not far from the Champs-Élysées, installing feather-topped, Dodo egg-shaped pendant lights – designed by her and part of her homeware range – as well as lights shaped like creeping vines in the lobby.
The designer has also created a silver lounge with reflective walls that can be glimpsed by passersby outside.
