The Birth of a Vocation

‘Everything changes, yet nothing changes'. This little hotel at 15 rue de la Grande Chaumière has maintained its homely style since the 1920s. Its new proprietors, Mr and Mrs Inchauspé, have an even stronger desire to conserve one thing: the love of art still lingers through this little Montparnasse street which was so dear to artists at the start of the twentieth century.

This love of art, combined with a passion for hotels, initiated a vocation for the Inchauspés. Mr Inchauspé, an enthusiastic Basque, forged his career in two very different worlds, auditing and audiovisual production, whereas his wife is a former broadcast journalist. Their former careers mean that they have maintained a preoccupation for good and honest work : Charlotte and Laurent know how to launch various artists onto the scene with rigueur.

Having opened the hotel at the start of 2007 and accomplishing the dream of a lifetime, the proprietor's first love was the surprising white figures of Jérôme Mesnager, which are painted in different positions on numerous walls of the hotel. Sculptor Sophie de Watrigant's white acrobats accompany them with joyful pertinence. As well as these artists, the hotel offers art films and cultivates its Parisian soul thanks to a style of décor which combines bistro chic with contemporary boudoir.

Surrounding some twenty rather small bedrooms, designed by Charlotte Inchauspé in collaboration with the interior designer Vincent Bastie, the hotel has four different atmospheres, both sober and sensual, evoking the refined forms of the 1920s and the glamour of Parisian velvet. All use fabrics from the grand Parisian houses. Service is especially welcoming, with a classic and beautiful elegance.
