Bridget Beari Travels to Marseille!


Bridget Beari Travels to Marseille France! 


I am preparing for my big trip to France next January so of course I am doing research on cool places to stay and things to do. 


I came across this cool hotel Au Vieux Panier that turns the tables on decor. Instead of using a designer for the rooms, this hotel uses different artists to create art in each of the 5 rooms. This not only makes the rooms completely unique but celebrates art as an experience not just art hanging on a wall. 



                  I love the breakfast bar with the juice and granola hanging on the wall. 





The XVIIth century building was formerly a Corsican grocery shop and has now turned into a well rated cool B&B. 



Here is a glimpse of the 5 rooms: 

#1   Fusion by Phillippe Baudelocque




  #2  Purgatory Palace by Mass Confusion



#3 Panic Room by Tilt, a renowned graffiti artist from Toulouse




#4 Matthias Olmeta



#5 Ciel by Mourad Messoubeur




#6 Land of the Moon by Eugenie Bergeon




                             This will be an awesome place to check out this winter!!!


                              Happy Painting ........

Isn't that graffiti room cool? I don't know if I could handle it but the concept is awesome!
