Eclectic Paris hotel takes cues from '70s soul and funk music

Idol Hotel is located in the 8th arrondissement

Leave it to Paris to play host to some of the most stylish hotels in the world. Here’s another design-forward, not-afraid-of-color-and-quirk boutique landing pad in the 8th arrondissement by designer Julie Gauthron. Situated in a so-called music lovers paradise—right next to the Municipal Conservatory of Paris and countless makers of instruments from guitars to violins—the Idol Hotel takes its design cues from the funk and soul music scenes of the ’60s and ’70s, with groovy colors and forms informing the 32 rooms and suites.

Each bold, unique space is named after a song, like The Doors’ “Light My Fire,” “Moon Blue” by Stevie Wonder, The Temptations’ “Lady Soul,” Blue October’s “Blue Sunshine,” The Chakachas’ “Jungle Fever,” and George Benson’s “Give Me the Night,” to name a few, with bathtubs and sinks integrated into the compact rooms. Graphic tiles, vibrant wallpapers, and classic architectural elements like picture frame moldings, for example, create an eclectic but decidedly Parisian atmosphere. Have a look below.
