This is a quickie today guys, as you can tell from “Inspiration Monday” and “Organization Wednesday” faltering as of late, I’m a disorganized mess! More on how to fix that on Wednesday, hopefully! I spied this backsplash on Jetsetter.com (I love to peruse the gorgeous hotels they have on there and dream about trips that will never happen). This one’s from an apartment that was for rent in Paris:

The backsplash is made of vintage postcards. I think because everything is so slick and shiny and the cards are lined up perfectly it doesn’t look kitschy or cluttered. Love It!

Flickr Faves on Friday: A New Hotel in Paris

This week’s flickr fave is making me want to hop on a plane to Paris. It’s from the Hotel La Belle Juliet, and it looks like a good antidote to some of the boutique hotels gone wrong that seems to be proliferating the hospitality industry lately. I’m thinking of a place in NYC that’s a little too cool for me, where I kept expecting to see Sid Vicious on the floor with a needle sticking out of his arm (I’m not going to name names, but let’s say it’s name is also a good card to draw in Blackjack.).

It looks like this Hotel will be opening just in time for New Year’s. The interior was designed by Anne Gelbard. For more information, click here.

Yesterday I found myself caught up in Before Sunset, and at the end, we get to see Julie Delpy’s large bohemian Parisian studio apartment. It’s something straight out of an Anthropologie catalog about ten years ago, and it’s fantastic. The apartment makes clear that music is as big a part of her life as it is John Cusack’s character in High Fidelity. The sense of color seems Moroccan-inspired, a few years before one could buy a Moroccan-inspired side table at say, West Elm:
