From the website of this boutique hotel, it seems magical. I think this would be a great idea to those of you that may stay longer in the city. But keep in mind – it is pretty upscale!

Basically, its a collection of 10 serviced apartments that go from 150 to 300 squared meters ranging from 1 to 4 bedrooms. The service include a daily housekeeper, valet and an “extensive concierge worthy of a 5-star hotel”. It also seems like its packed with high-tech amenities (which is rare in paris), and the location is beautiful. It is located on the Place du Trocadero in the 16th district – this comes with an amazing view of the eiffel tower.

At first, I was a bit put down by the fact that they do not offer room service, but the location spares you that. You are basically in the heart of some of the best coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants. Plus, the apartments are equipped with fully-functional kitchens for those of you that like to do it your way.

In conclusion, I am a fan of the art deco/modern style this hotel has taken on. I like the surrounding location and the concept that is not the typical “see-and-be-seen” style that I’m a bit bored of. I would personally rather spend a couple of hours in the buzz of people but come back to a quiet and comfortable home, than constantly live in such a scenery. I will surely check it out as soon as I can!

Regardless of the technical specs

An Optical illusion the size of a village

Felice varini is known for creating illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces. These illusions play with the rules of human perception and constructed perspective, with painted lines aligning in space to look like a flat graphic from a fixed viewpoint.

Now, Varini has taken on the challenge of working at the scale of the village, superimposing perfect circles on the town of Vercorin in the Swiss Alps. From inside the village, the graphic is fragmented and impossible to read, but from a nearby vantage point, the lines come together to form a series of rings.
