What first caught our attention about Au Vieux Panier were images of its Panic Room designed by grafitti artist, Tilt. Intrigued by a property that would enlist artists to customize decor so guests could sleep in art, we needed to see more.

Located in the Panier district of Marseilles, France, this 17th-century hotel was once a Corsican grocery shop. Today, it’s a veritable work of art — six sleeping chambers designed by six different artists.

Making a statement on the welcome page of its website, Au Vieux Panier puts forth its House Spirit — “A comfortable and welcoming house dedicated to elegance and refinement. The building puts together Art and Decadence, which represents freedom of expression and lifestyle. In short it is timeless and audacious!”

After checking out photos of the various rooms from artists Tilt, Matthias Olmeta, Mourad Messobeur, Eugene Bergeon, Mass Confusion and Phillippe Baudelocque, we couldn’t agree more.

Itching to put your own stamp on a room. Check out the hotel’s call for entries on its website.
