The historic Parisian palace hotel, Le Royal Monceau, is going to be gutted and redone from scratch to transform it into a new Raffles Hotel (and considering how often they’ve tried unsuccessfully to redecorate it, it’s probably for the best). So in preparation for the demolition crews, this week they’re auctioning off the entire interior, from the luxury linens and porcelain to the antique furniture and the chandeliers.
You can go see what will be auctioned today and tomorrow from 10am-10pm, and the auctions take place throughout the day on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 19-22). Here’s your chance to get some Royal Monceau embossed towels — without sneaking them out in your suitcase, that is. 😉
A wonderful blog you have! Love it! I enjoy very much the way you describe life, things, events… in Paris! (Welcome to my Paris blog, if you feel like it!)
