I wasn’t planning on writing about a destination. When I first saw images of this print factory turned house I was in love. I have a thing for industrial spaces, for reinvention…. and the polished concrete floors, the slate bathrooms, and the Moroccan riad-inspired design are pretty okay as well. Upon further investigation I came to realize that not only is this the home of creative Annick Lestrohan, of the Honoré brand, but it is also a mini-hotel, named Casa Honoré located in the heart of Marseilles.
With the spirit of the New Year in mind I am looking at the element of slate in design as a nod to the clean one with which I am starting this year. I love the raw, rustic, serene feeling which it lends to a room. It is elemental, earthy, and dark – but not cold – the blackish gray is warm and grounding. I love how it is used in these spaces.
