The hotel du Petit Moulin relooked by Christian Lacroix

Start

Testifying to the transformation of this historic and popular part of the Marais into an arty, discreet and trendy district, the Hotel du Petit Moulin is a former bakery transformed into an inspired and colourful hotel thanks to the generous drawings of Christian Lacroix.

Facade from another century, 1900 front listed as a Historic Monument, period counters, original beams, an eclectic mix of mirrors, images, furniture, colours and materials, the Hôtel du Petit Moulin has an unclassifiable little side lined with an aniseed candy: always surprising, always intimate, always a little nostalgic and yet like a waking dream.

"I've always liked the idea of the hotel, of traveling around a room. Each of the 17 rooms corresponds to an approach to this part of Paris where you don't just come down by chance, attracted both by History and the air of time. We thus go from a Rustic Marais in toile de Jouy to a more Zen or design Marais, from a historical Marais in damask to a more playful Marais. One room may have cornices, brackets and mouldings, another is more pop or rustic. Some are a little Grand Genre, others a little kitsch or a little Zen to symbolize all the facets of the Marais, from the toile de Jouy to the design sixty. » Christian Lacroix.
