Weekday Wanderlust | Places: Brach Hotel & Restaurant, Paris


Brach Hotel and Restaurant

I probably should be the last person to should talk about Brach Hotel, as I only spent one hour in their restaurant for breakfast, but I think it’s more than enough to get a feel for the atmosphere and to absorb this chic Parisian experience.

The design is incredibly beautiful, with influences from Africa, Asia and South America, but so well-blended that everything in the place feels super cosy and refined:

"Philippe Starck, the designer, used this clever wallcovering to seamlessly blend built-in shelves—featuring art, African masks, and other objets d’art—into the decor, creating a rich yet intimate space that makes the most of the small square footage." (domino)

"The look is polished and sumptuous, with high-quality materials – think marble, polished metal and leather – and the kind of individual touches popular on Paris’s more low-key boutique hotel scene. Furnishings mix Deco and mid-century elements with contemporary artwork (including a ceiling canvas by Starck’s daughter, Ara, on the first floor and one of her murals in the ground-floor restaurant) and imported pieces from across the world. Each public space has its own custom scent.

A curated selection of French novels and art books, and flower arrangements tucked away in wall niches." (The Telegraph)

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
