Last month Home & Lifestyle Magazine collaborated with the modelling agency Scouting Division on a fashion photo shoot at The Peninsula Paris hotel.
Appropriately, for this special presentation, the Peninsula name is synonymous with romance, glamour and style. It is housed in an exquisitely restored 19th century French building that first opened in 1908 as one of Paris’s leading “grands hotels.”
After being dormant for two decades, this architectural gem on Avenue Kléber was meticulously restored and reopened as The Peninsula Paris in the heart of the French capital – within walking distance of leading museums, luxury shopping districts and fine dining establishments. In the evening, the rooftop L’Oiseau Blanc restaurant terrace provides 360-degree views of the French capital’s iconic monuments, including the Eiffel Tower.
The Peninsula Paris’s rooms and suites feature an accent on classic modernity which, according to the hotel, “adheres to the design tenets of simplicity and chic elegance… showcasing the finest materials and craftsmanship”.
The hotel’s eclectic array of restaurant and dining options adds a new culinary dimension to the City of Light. Open daily, six establishments offer the best of French and international cuisine: Le Lobby, LiLi Cantonese, La Terrasse Kléber, Le Bar Kléber, Le Lounge Kléber and the aforementioned L’Oiseau Blanc.
The Peninsula Paris is also home to a luxuriously appointed, 1,800 square metre spa and wellness area, allowing guests to refresh and revitalise body and mind, in a streamlined design ambience dotted with plant and mineral notes and exuding a sensation of refinement and luxury.
