The Panic Room at Au Vieux Panier
Want to sleep in the Panic Room? Book now. It’s only here for the remainder of 2012. At this boutique hotel, each room is awarded to a new artist to decorate annually. The Panic Room is the creation of legendary French graffiti artist Tilt. One half of the room is covered in every neon paint color imaginable, resulting in a unified-yet-chaotic canvas of Tilt’s urban art. The other half remains stark white, with the separating line cleaving the most of the furnishings in half. Tilt’s internationally acclaimed style began in 1988 as a youth tagging subway cars and skateboard ramps and grew into a respected art form that’s now recognized worldwide.
Bonus: Each room may be designed by a modern artist, but they all exist within the walls of a 17th century townhome.
Approximate Cost: $170/night
