A ‘Hotel Particulier’ in Paris

I  hope that you all have had a wonderful Mother’s Day! If you want to drop your family a hint for next year’s Mother’s day, then maybe you could show the images of this elegant Parisian hotel , to hopefully be invited to spend a Mother’s Day weekend here!!!


Browsing the magazine Elle Decoration, issue Mai 2011, I came across this hotel that recently is been given a new look by the American-in-Paris designer Bambi Sloan. With an English humour she redesigned the interior of the hotel in her personal bright version of the French 19th century Napoleon III-style.

This beautiful hotel Saint James Paris is a magnificent chateau built in 1893 in the center of Paris, protected from prying eyes by high walls and a wrought iron gate.

It was previously known as the Saint James's Club and has been in private French ownership since 1992. Now it is run as a lovely chateau-hotel.

It was here that the Montgolfières launched the first primitive airship.

Interesting to know is, that the hotel has its own blog : Le blog Saint James Paris, where you will discover all the upcoming events and news about what is going on at the hotel and in Paris! Really worth a visit!


I wish you all a happy new week!
