Hotels & Lodging: Les Sources de Caudalie in Bordeaux

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.
