Steal This Look: A Springlike Pastel Bedroom in Paris, DIY Edition

May 7, 2019

The genius of the Hotel Henriette is in the details—done on a tight budget, no less. Designer Vanessa Scoffier of Les Nouveaux Decorateurs turned the 30-year-old hotel into a “vintage, bohème, and très DIY” sanctuary. In the 140 square feet of the Double Chambre, also known as the Glamour room, vintage-doors-as-headboard and a pastel palette offer serious inspiration for any guest bedroom or small space. Here are the resources to get the look.

The Double Chambre starts at an affordable (and unheard of for Paris) price of €9. Visit Hotel Henriette for more information, and see our post on the space The Très DIY Hotel Henriette in Paris (Starting at $97 a Night).
