Irwin Weiner ASID - Greetings from Paris! Jay Johnson and I are on Day 2 of our vacation in the beautiful French capital, and that of course means that we're on "assignment" for Design2Share. We never go anywhere without reporting back on residential and home trends, and that includes the latest international hotel scene and other looks in public spaces that will soon influence the shape of home style. Our second featured video is a Red Visitor interview with public relations and media local Camille Benech, and she gives her recommendations for restaurants and cocktail/bar spots, including The Raphael Terrace, Hotel Costes (photo below), Mathis Bar, and L'Experimental Cocktail Club (top photo).
You'll note the trend in these restaurants and watering holes for luxury, shine, and Old World glamour - or else a completely opposite low-key, quiet, darker elegance.
