This small hotel on the left bank is not far from the Manufacture des Gobelins and blends several eras with precision and charm. The nineteenth-century wallpaper and contemporary coloured tiles in the entrance hall go together wonderfully. The majority of the decorative objects come from the personal collection of Vanessa Scoffier, the former editor of Marie Claire and a complete accessory queen. Think Guariche coffee tables and Platner armchairs.
The lovely patio is the perfect hiding place for reading and relaxing among a plethora of fresh flowers. The beautifully wrinkled armchairs are a pleasant throwback to yesteryear. Each of the 32 rooms is unique, with graphic and geometric wallpaper in navy blue, mustard and white. Room 32, for example, is jazzed up two fluorescent pink strips on the wall, Mondrian-style.
The cosy dining room offers a nice view onto the patio too. If the graphic furniture in pastel and wood is anything to go by, Hotel Henriette is heavily influenced by Scandinavian style, which is already a big hit in the capital. With its calm and soothing atmosphere, you will feel straight at home at Henriette’s.
