Schloss Hotel Korb: A Suite Decorated With Old

My spacious suite

is located in the central building of the Hotel Schloss Korb, originally an ancient castle (I’m not a huge fan of sleeping in castles). Upon entering, I immediately noticed a beautiful bouquet of purple orchids almost black, in the parlor bathed in sunlight and overlooking the rose garden (picture 4).

An old telephone, some beautiful books about South Tirol, crystal chandelier and old wood (pictures 2 and 4): like the feeling to break into scene of an Agatha Christie’s novel. Then I head to another room bathed in light: the bedroom, with two large windows opened onto a bucolic landscape of postcard…

The ubiquity of Dolomiti! I’m Charmed by the lovely bright atmosphere, the hangings, the bed (very comfortable, with German single duvets, I mean a single duvet for each one in a bridal bed! It has always struck me! Lol!). In contrast, the impeccable bathroom offerts space and comfort of today and I prefer.

Many thanks for this beautiful invitation to Suedtirol and Lufthansa. As always these opinions are my own.

Hotel Lancaster celebrates Helmut Newton

When I was a kid, I discovered photography by a small exhibition in Paris, with pictures of Helmut Newton : it was a shock that changed my life! But this is another story… What the link between the Hôtel Lancaster, the famous Parisian palace hosted the mythical Marlene Dietrich and the bigger than life Helmut Newton? In 1976, in the Marlene Dietrich suite  of the Lancaster, the fashion photographer shot for Hermès, the « Saddle » series. What a small world!

For the first French retrospective of the photographer in Grand Palais, from March 24th till June 17th, 2012, the small palace proposes an exclusive offer, for the duration of the exhibition, including:  

– accommodation in one of the newly renovated rooms or suites, breakfast at La Table du Lancaster, two tickets for the exhibition “Helmut Newton” at the Grand Palais (every day except Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.), the booklet of the exhibition and late check out at 15:00 to availability. Price from 480 € per night in Dreamer’s double room. Wifi access is available and the hotel offers its customers a courtesy car from 7:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m., 7 days / 7.

“Women Changing India”, The Exhibition in Petit Palais, Paris

A must see : “Women Changing India“. It’s a very moving exhibition full of promise about the status of women in India. 108 pictures shot by Magnum Photos‘s photographers : Olivia Arthur, Martine Franck, Raghu Raï, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Alex Webb and Patrick Zachmann. They have each chosen and shown a different topic, to discover how women contribute to “change the world”. And we discover stonished portraits of  active women and/or activists women. But all they have established themselves in Indian society, by their talent, determination and/or professional success, regardless of caste, age and difficulties. Some pictures are amazingly beautiful (like the Raghu Raï’s portraits) and the captions sometimes describe destinies that command respect. The short films are also very interesting. And we come out of this exhibition naively hopeful. Congrats! 

Till January 8 @ Petit Palais, Paris. womenchangingindia.pourunmondequichange.com
