The Hotel Bellechasse re-imagined by Lacroix
The Marais District of Paris has always attracted a colorfully design-minded set. Filled with artful additions such as the Hotel du Petit Moulin, whose interiors were imagined by Christian Lacroix, there has been no sign of fading affection for the region. Now, in addition to the Petit Moulin, Lacroix has put his personal affection for design into a second endeavor, the Hotel Bellechasse in Saint Germain. With its kaleidoscope of colors, dainty stencil drawings along high sky-lights and surprising touches such as fabric lined walls, Bellechasse's boutique sized accommodations are attracting every sort of taste maker to Paris' left bank.
