Channeling Picasso: Honoré Décoration in Marseilles

Issue 96 · The Urban Kitchen · October 28, 2013

T Magazine recently called Marseilles "The secret capital of France, a magnet for bohemia, like Berlin." Visitors in search of the bohemian vibe would do well to stay at Saint Honoré, a small guesthouse in the VIeux Port, which features an adjacent home furnishing shop called Honoré Décoration.

In a converted studio off a narrow alley in the seaport city's oldest quartier, Annick de Lestrohan, owner of Saint Honoré, and her daughter, Ingrid Giribone, weave Moroccan influences into their Honoré Décoration line of furniture and accessories for the home. To see the full line, go to Honoré Décoration.
