THE STORY: In Paris’s quiet 7th arrondissement, surrounded by cushy brasseries and antique shops sparkling with golden objects, De Beaune knows how to stay discreet. Behind a small door with no visible sign, this haven dreamt up by the Bouaziz sisters at Studio Yeay boasts six extraordinary pied-à-terre-style apartments, done up with the chic bohemian style so beloved by the neighborhood. They all cleverly combine the comforts of a hotel with the intimacy of a cozy apartment, from the suites (light oak floors, warm tones, marble bathrooms) to the duplex with two double bedrooms and a living room bathed in natural light. Making it all even better, there are works on display by some extremely talented artists and artisans, like Karla Sutra and her lustful and poetic pottery, Amca Oval and their hypnotizing tapestries, or Étienne Bardelli and his monochromatic murals, which enhance the private terrace upstairs. And just like that, Paris is yours! Apartments starting at €250 a night.
TOILETRIES: The Naked Shop body wash and shampoo.
BREAKFAST: Not served, but a Welcome Box is provided upon arrival, which contains freshly-ground coffee from Cafés de Mick, Kusmi Tea and a snack made fresh by Casa Lea, in addition to a neighborhood guidebook. Otherwise, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare your breakfast or add to it with your own groceries.
LITTLE LUXURY: Take a stroll through Maison Gainsbourg, a stone’s throw away, maintained and presented to the public as if the artist were still living there.
