Hotels & Lodging: Les Sources de Caudalie in Bordeaux

Christine Chang Hanway October 21, 2011

We fell hard for innovative Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela's Line 13 Collection installation a few years back. So when we spotted Margiela's work for Les Sources de Caudalie, a hotel and spa in Bordeaux, we took note. For this particular project, Margiela waved his white wand over the hotel's signature suite, using a palette of antique white and gray, trompe l'oeil wallpaper, and mirrored surfaces to create a calming, though slightly surreal, oasis. For more information, go to Les Sources de Caudalie.

Above: The suite, called L'Ile aux Oiseaux, is housed in a rustic lodge. The hotel itself is located among the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, across from the winery itself. Image via wego.

Above: The designer uses tactile materials to great effect. Twelve pillows affixed to the walls create a large cloud-like headboard while white calfskin rugs on the floor speak of softness and warmth.

Above: Carefully placed mirrors heighten the illusory feeling of this fantasy room.

Above: A trompe l'oeil aficionado, Margiela used photo-printed tiles of pebbles on the bathroom floors.

Above: Mirrors of different sizes bring an element of playfulness into the bathroom.
