Paris must have the most beautiful hotels in the world.
I have written a number of posts about Parisien hotels on +deco but there is always something new to show you, like the Hotel National des Arts and Métiers, a real gem designed by Raphael Navot.
The hotel is elegant, timeless and masculine which, in a period characterized by pink and gold abuse, is refreshing.
The use of colors, from the light blues to the earthy red and green, is masterful .
The grey marble staircase is a sculpture. The geometrical design makes the granite floor look like a soft rug.
The linen tapestry painted (picture below) with Japanese ink by Gael Davrinche is a poetic representation of the mood of a sea sky.
The rest is elegant and sober, for a calming experience.
