PARIS VI

LOCATED IN THE HEART OF


THE 6th ARRONDISSEMENT OF PARIS, IN
THE HEART OF SAINT-GERMAIN-DES-PRS,
LEBAUME IS A FOUR-STAR HOTEL WITH
35 COMFORTABLE, ELEGANT ROOMS
DECORATED IN A REMIXED 1930s STYLE.

WHY BAUME?

All the elegant details of the era are present, including exotic wood veneers,
shagreen leather, satin fabrics and shot silk.

Her stories are constructed in the same way as


the story of the hotel, often featuring groups
of individuals whose paths cross over the
decades.

Telling the story of six fictional characters with six different themes for the interior
design, each room has its own feel, with luxurious and contrasting materials.
The attention to detail, refinement and quality of the elements used pay homage
to the modernity, elegance and positivity of the era.

Vicki Baum was an Austrian author during the


golden age of Art Deco. After a short career
as a concert artist, she began writing and
published Grand Hotel (1929), Shanghai
Hotel(1939) and Berlin Hotel before leaving
Austria for Hollywood, where she became a
famous screenwriter.

Le Baume pays homage to her work.

STORIES AND STYLES

6 STYLES, 6 CHARACTERS.
Imagine a group of friends growing up together, and whose paths cross and
diverge over the years. Each of them shows a facet of the 1930s, a time when
France developed its art de vivre, and living conditions were comfortable
between the two wars.
Jewellery, fashion, perfume, design, nightlife and cinema all thrived at this time.
Hotel Baume shows 6 different styles, all heavily influenced by the Art Deco period.

THE CORRIDORS AND STAIRS


THE PERFUME

A transition, the space between spaces that creates a link between


the themes of the rooms.
The theme here is perfume a growth industry in the 1930s and the
olfactory creations of the era. Black, chic and restful, the design is
highlighted by textures: ostrich leather, matt and glossy lacquer...
The olfactory signature of the hotel is stronger here. Images of perfume
from the era guide visitors to the door of their rooms. The design of the
doors themselves is inspired by the stopper from a Chanel perfume
bottle.
A photo of one of the storys characters is displayed on each floor.

SERGE

PERSONIFIED BY HENRI: SON OF A CHEMIST, HE DISCOVERED HIS PASSION FOR PERFUME


AT DROM IN MUNICH WHERE HE CREATED HIS FAVOURITE FRAGRANCE, NEVER COM
MERCIALISED: LE BAUME DU BAUME. TIRED OF LIFE IN PARIS, HE LATER BECAME A
HORTICULTURIST ON THE BANK OF THE MARNE RIVER.

FASHION JEWELLERY CINEMA

THE ROOMS
FASHION

A refined changing room, feminine and elegant Decorated with shot


silk - a fabric that came back into fashion in the 1930s - and original
drawings, the rooms with this theme use a variety of greys, pinks
and gold. Much like a haute couture fashion house, the seats are
upholstered, the lamps reference the bibi hats of the era and a mirror
with fake feathers evokes creations by Schiaparelli.
PERSONIFIED BY CLAUDINE: CLAUDINE WAS A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN WITH A LARGE
BIRTHMARK ON HER CHEEK. HER REMARKABLE SPORTSWOMANS BODY ALLOWED HER TO
BECOME THE MODEL FOR THE SCANDALE BRAND OF GIRDLES WHERE SHOWING HER FACE
WAS NOT NECESSARY.

JEWELLERY
Chic and slightly flashy. This theme is characterised by wallpaper that
looks much like golden corrugated iron, mirrors that explode into a
thousand pearls and necklace wall lights. The side tables use rings as
structural elements and delicate jewellery is shown in display cases,
much like a jewellery store window.
PERSONIFIED BY ODETTE: ODETTE, A FANCIFUL WOMAN, WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT JEWELLERY
AND INDEED HAD QUITE A LARGE COLLECTION OF IT. SHE MANAGED TO MARRY THE LOVE
OF HER LIFE CHARLES, BUT THEIR UNION WAS NOT A HAPPY ONE, AND SHE SPENT THE END
OF HER LIFE LIVING IN A LUXURY HOTEL ON THE CTE DAZUR IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE.

CINEMA
The transition from black and white to colour on a movie set We start
with stars of the silver screen in black and white, shown in profile and
framed. Then colour creeps in, with touches of beige, grey and pink.
The wallpaper references spools of film, the mirrors are inspired by
slide images and the lamps evoke studio lighting.
PERSONIFIED BY YVONNE: YVONNE DREAMED OF BEING IN THE THEATRE. SHE LIVED AT THE
HOTEL SAINT SULPICE (NOW THE HOTEL BAUME) WHICH WAS THEN OWNED BY HER PARENTS.
ONE DAY IN THE LUXEMBOURG GARDENS SHE MET AN AMERICAN WOMAN WHO HIRED HER
AS THE NANNY TO HER CHILDREN, AND TOOK HER BACK TO THE UNITED STATES. BECAUSE
OF HER RESEMBLANCE TO NORMA SHEARER, YVONNE BECAME THE ACTRESS DOUBLE IN
GEORGE CUKORS FILM LITTLE WOMEN. HER NICKNAME IN THE GROUP WAS BAUM.

ARCHITECTURE CLUB

ARCHITECTURE
A strong graphic style, contrasting and modern ArtDeco evolved and found a new energy in the United States. The walls of these
rooms are decorated with wallpaper reminiscent of the spire of the Chrysler Building, the
seating is leather and the furniture and lighting are the work of designers who have made
their mark in history. Geometric lines can be
found in the curtains.
PERSONIFIED BY JEAN-CHARLES: SON OF A VERY
WEALTHY FAMILY THAT LIVED NEAR THE LUXEMBOURG
GARDENS, CHARLES DREAMED OF BECOMING AN
ARCHITECT AND BUILDING THE VILLA BAUME, BEFORE
HIS DREAMS WERE DASHED BY THE WALL STREET CRASH
OF 1929.

THE CLUB
Like visiting one of the cosy nightspots of the
Roaring Twenties Back in the days, people
would stay out all night, dancing and drinking
in clubs with overstitched fabrics and contrasting exotic wood veneers. Blue, orange and
camel browns reinvent a chic, masculine atmosphere, with photos and certain details
bringing to mind the golden years of the clubs
of Shanghai.
PERSONIFIED BY SERGE: SERGE WAS THE MOST HAND
SOME OF THE GROUP. HE WAS A PARTY ANIMAL WHO
BECAME FRIENDS WITH JOSPHINE BAKER AND PARTFINANCED HER REVUE NGRE. HE EVENTUALLY LEFT TO
LIVE IN SHANGHAI, WHERE HE BECAME MANAGER OF A
LARGE HOTEL.

These 6 themes can be found on all floors of the


Hotel Baume and all categories of room.

Available in 6 categories, the 35 rooms of the


Hotel Baume all have the same high quality furnishings. The room size is the main difference.

THE INTERIOR DESIGNERS


Hotel Baume owes its atmosphere to Exclusive Interiors by
T&T, an interior design agency founded by Thibaut Fron
and Thierry Martin.

THE LOBBY

One of their strong points is mixing genres to create interiors


that are 100% exclusive.Specialising in interior design and
decoration, as well as furniture design,Exclusive Interiors
by T&Tadapts to each project. In this case, Thibaut and
Thierry took the stories of our six characters and used
them to create the 6 room styles found in Le Baume.

With a style all of its own, the lobby uses two of the elements
employed in the rooms - exotic wood veneers that remind
one of the clubs of the time, and jewellery-influenced wall
lamps that bring to mind the opulent creations of the
1930s. The tones of grey and mustard give a new twist to
the interior decoration of the times, married with touches
of shagreen leather typical of the period. The shape of the
furniture is inspired by the era, but with todays modernity
and comfort.

Some objects were found in antique shops


or flea markets, like the compacts displayed in
the lobby. The jewellery in the table displays
of the Jewellery rooms is the work of Anna
Rivka. The engravings in the Fashion rooms
are originals from the 1932 collection by the
maison Pernet, by Mme Jeannest. Some vases
are influenced by Egypt, a popular theme of
the time.
