Hipster Paradise: Hôtel du Temps in Montmartre

June 4, 2013

If this were Paris in 1969, you could bet that Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin would be staying at the Hí´tel du Temps, the latest boutique hotel in Montmartre.  A project of Lionel Benesmoun and Alix Thomsen, with branding by Laura Leonard, the understated hotel is comprised of 23 rooms, a piano bar and lounge.

At its opening in February this year, Alix Thomsen debuted her Fall 2013 collection with a party; the interiors, featuring palm printed textiles and hallways blocked in woven rattan, served as a tropical backdrop for the Parisian cool festivities. Visit Hí´tel du Temps for more information.
