I was reading Jan Shower's new notebook post about her recent trip to NYC where she stayed at The Mark Hotel on Madison Ave. Apparently, it is an older hotel that was completely renovated by the renowned Jacques Grange in a style inspired by Paris circa 1930. You know I had to research this further since vintage Parisian design is so up my alley! I was not disappointed by what I found.

The yellow of the curtains is the perfect accent to the neutral room without being overbearing.
|I adore the coffered ceiling and the use of chunky moldings to frame-in the walls.|

The piece de resistance of the entire hotel, in my opinion, are the bathroom vanities. They were all custom-made for the hotel in a elegant Tiffany blue with stainless steel accents. These would have looked as good 50 years ago as they do today and will continue to look just as fabulous for years to come. This is what one strives for when designing permanent fixtures such as counter-tops, cabinetry, floors, ceilings, etc.
