Bad news, folks. Unfortunately we only won $2 from our Mega Millions lottery ticket this weekend, instead of the $640 million I had anticipated. Slight difference. Ahh c’est la vie!

If we had hit the jackpot, I’d be on a private jet to France right now to check out this mind-boggling room at the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille. The split between pristine white and absolute chaos is jarring to say the least, and I particularly love how the dividing line runs right through the mirror and bureau without stopping. This two-faced room was created by renowned graffiti artist, Tilt, and has been dubbed the “Panic Room”.

Hubs took one look at these photos and declared that it was a headache waiting to happen. I, on the other hand, think it’s kind of like having a piece of NYC in France :-) Would you check in here for a good night’s rest?

    WOW–what a wild room! I think I’d rent it for a little mega millions fête, but not for a good night’s sleep!

  3. Jessica says:

    I have to agree with your husband. I can totally see myself waking up in the middle of night confused and cranky.

  4. It’s amazing how stark the contrast is! The graffiti is really beautiful though – fun idea!

    That is cool. I’d make the hubs sleep on the chaotic side…just so I could get serenity.

    Wow…that room is intense! I’m not sure if I’d be able to stay in it…although very interesting concept.

    That room is seriously amazing…I don’t think I would ever get sick of looking at it! And I also didn’t win the big bucks…sigh. Next time!

  8. this place doesn’t read good night sleep to me at all… ha! happy monday!

    I don’t think I could stay in that room – I already have a hard enough time remembering where I am when I wake up because of all the travel

    I agree with Anna – $2 is better than nothing :) I love this room in theory, but not sure this is where I would go for some nice R&R :) It’s definitely fun though!
