Until August 17th, at the Petit-Palais, we recommend the exhibition ‘Paris 1900, The City of Entertainment’. It is an invitation to the public to relive the splendour of the French capital at the time when the “Paris Exposition Universelle” was heralding the arrival of the 20th century.
The Petit-Palais is at walking distance from the Hotel Mayfair Paris.
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Late opening until 10pm on Thursdays for this temporary exhibition.
We are delighted to share with our guests a photo of the new common areas carpet.
We’ve selected a royal blue colour and golden heraldic lily pattern (Fleur de Lys).
Particularly associated with the French monarchy, and in extension to the House of Bourbon, this colour and pattern are also still present in the coat of arms of the city of Paris.
We believe this reflects European history, French history, Paris, French classic style and that it strengthens our decoration identity.
We hope you will all appreciated it. Please do not hesitate to share your comments with us!

Mayfair’s exhibition advice.
Text and Image Source Musée d’Orsay website.
A few days before the opening of a van Gogh exhibition in Paris in 1947, gallery owner Pierre Loeb suggested that Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) write about the painter. Challenging the thesis of alienation, Artaud was determined to show how van Gogh’s exceptional lucidity made lesser minds uncomfortable.
Wishing to prevent him from uttering certain “intolerable truths”, those who were disturbed by his painting drove him to suicide.
Based on the categories and the unusual designations put forward by Artaud in Van Gogh, the Man Suicided by Society, , the exhibition will comprise some forty paintings, a selection of van Gogh’s drawings and letters, together with graphic works by the poet-illustrator.

The Hotel Mayfair Paris is located in a small street, between Place de La Concorde and Place Vendôme. The street name is “Rue Rouget de L’Isle”. But who is Rouget de L’Isle?
Monsieur Claude Rouget de L’Isle was an officer in the French army but also a poet and a song writer.
In 1792, during the French Revolution (period from 1789 to 1799); he is the one who wrote the French National anthem “La Marseillaise”.
This lithography, located in the hotel’s lobby, portrays the first time Monsieur Rouget de L’Isle performs La Marseillaise.

Let’s discover one of the Mayfair’s rooms!
One of the Mayfair’s specificities is that a majority of rooms have a unique decoration.
The De Luxe room portrayed in this photo, is one of these uniquely decorated rooms.
Located on the 5th floor, its boats a black & white Mozart partition on its wall fabric.
The Mozart “Pentagrama” wall fabric was designed by famous French Designer Pierre Frey.
The “Lhassa” curtains, also from Pierre Frey, with modern stripe mixes embroidery and appliqué, and coordinates perfectly with “Pentagrama” wall fabric.
A red carpet gives to this black & white fabric combination a colour contrast and a touch of energy!

Our energetic cultural advice for this autumnal Parisian week-end: Tokyo Crazy Kawaii!
The word of “Kawaii” contains various meanings of Nippon cultures, like generous attitudes to others and generosity that accept different fashion styles. The mission of “Tokyo Crazy Kawaii” is to deliver and carry on the beauty of Japanese language and Nippon’s creativity to the world and to have local people accept “Kawaii Culture” as a part of their life style, not a one-time trend.
As the very first event location, Tokyo Crazy Kawaii Committee has chosen Paris, France!
