Located in the Rue d’Edimbourg in a music loving neighborhood, the Idol Hotel is a colorful Parisian boutique hotel that pays homage to its neighbors, like the Municipal Conservatory of Paris and nearby instrument makers. It’s no surprise that renowned hotel designer Julie Gauthron is the woman behind the bold and unforgettable interior, which meant we had to take a look for this Destination Design.
Gauthron designed the interior around music, particularly funk, soul, and jungle music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, which you’ll see throughout. The hotel has 32 rooms, including 5 suites, each centered around a different color palette and theme, helping to immerse guests into a full-on music experience.
The dramatic rooms, each appropriately named, inspire vibes of Parisian playfulness with showers and tubs on full display.
