Created by the talent and extraordinary imagination of interior designer Bambi Sloan, the opulence of the Saint James Paris is openly displayed by its décor, an innovative blend of genres, colours and patterns. Like an artfully choreographed ballet, all the elements of the décor, found here and there, give each room its unique character. The hot air balloon motif, a recurring theme in this decorative array, evokes the origins of the location, Paris' first airfield. Leopard print carpets stand alongside Toile de Jouy fabrics, 18th century furniture and fabrics with a very Scottish flavour with exquisite brazenness. By disregarding the rules, Bambi Sloan has made her mark with her own personal style of 'crazy chic'.
The Saint James Paris is mere minutes away from the Bois de Boulogne.

Playgrounds and picnic areas are on hand for the perfect lazy afternoon with your partner or family in this little slice of the countryside in Paris.
