This is the latest collaboration between Adrian Gloaguen – the man behind Paris’ charming Hotel Paradis – and decorator Dorothée Meilichzon. Quirky, all angles and corners, the Panache Hotel has already the cards to become the new trendy hideout. So, in case you’re finding it hard defining where to stay in Paris, since there are so many beautiful hotels, designed by la crème de la crème in the interior design industry, you probably should consider this.
The Hotel Panache is located in the 10th arrondissement, on the right bank of the River Seine, and comes with 40 bizarrely configured rooms, unwittingly giving the property its stand-out charm.
Dorothée Meilichzon has smartly made the most of the curved walls, tight angles and irregular alcoves with carefully placed furnishings and art deco-style bevelled-edge mirrors that are a departure from her usual retro style.
What this project tells us is: refusing to easy repetition, Dorothée Meilichzon, inspired by the Flatiron Building in New York, monument in terms of corner building, prints on the walls geometric rhythms, asserts her with arrows, scatters its shots heart, plays with lines laying a carpet patterned mini triangles, and shuffleboard games with its amazing mirrors on offices and nightstands. A new modernity tinged with a slight retro parigot.
In the lobby, there’s a beautiful marble table and velvet sofas. Inside the bedrooms, a vintage breeze twists the room.
A true perfectionist, and with a researcher’s mind, Dorothée is always seeking out new trends, and takes her inspiration from everything around her – and that’s what she did at the Panache Hotel in Paris. She puts the finishing touches to her historically charged decor with a few contemporary pieces, often from small craft collections.
Hotel Panache is ready for the spring, where Meilichzon plays on the wedge-shaped building with a triangle motif in the carpets and mirrors. A beautiful place to stay.
