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.
Above: The Double Chambre starts at an affordable (and unheard of for Paris) price of €109. 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). Paint Above: A similar color to the light gray on the walls is Farrow & Ball’s Purbeck Stone. Above: A close match to the color on the DIY headboard (made of reclaimed wood doors) is Benjamin Moore’s Santa Monica Blue.
Lighting Above: The Grossman Grashoppa Pendant Light in Blue Gray (shown) is $359 at YLighting. Furniture Above: A similar Mid-Century Nightstand in an acorn-colored finish is $299 at West Elm. Bedding Above: One of many good choices for simple white bedsheets is the Merci Optic White Linen Fitted Sheet (from €99) and accompanying Optic White Linen Flat Sheet (€150). For more options, see our post 10 Easy Pieces: Simple White Sheets. Above: The Merci Azure Washed Linen Duvet Cover for 2 People (86.5 by 94.5 inches) is €250 at Merci in Paris. Above: The Optic White Linen Cushion Cover €39 at Merci. Above: The Linge Particulieur Linen Standard Pillowcase in Scandinavian Blue (shown) is $50 at Collyer’s Mansion. Above: The Ligne Particulier Curry Flowers Linen Euro Pillowcase is $65 at Collyer’s Mansion.
Accessories Above: For a similar classic brass French-style light switch and dimmer, Meljac’s Classique Switch (shown) is your best bet. We also like Forbes & Lomax for something similar in unlacquered brass as well. Above: The Large French Triple Mirror is an oversize version of the small vintage mirror seen on the bedside table here. This one is £185 at Cox & Cox.
