François Champsaur renovates the Vernet Hotel in Paris.
On the eve of its 100th anniversary, the Hôtel Vernet entrusts François Champsaur with its renovations. Truly a secret garden, the Vernet also revives the traditions of great Parisian establishments by paying homage to elegance and French savoir-faire. From the entrance hall to the bedrooms, the accuracy and precision of the design converses with the spirit of the hotel and its history. This contrast between two different eras is a cause for dynamic and light discussion. François Champsaur, as a passionate collector of contemporary art, has chosen an amalgamation of paintings, original watercolours and sculpture, both establishing an aura of an art collector’s home and reinforcing the private and intimate side of the collection.
