Jean Paul Gaultier's carte blanche leads to LSD trip

Christian Lacroix and Martin Margiela have gone before him, and in 2010 it's Jean Paul Gaultiers noble task as the third designer to decorate the 250m² of Palais de Chaillot, the apartment in Trocadéro, to his tastes and likes. His nautique theme comes alive in one of the rooms where he seems to have 'dressed' every piece of furniture in blue and white sweaters. Located in front of La Tour Eiffel, the designer has gotten carte blanche by Elle Décoration magazine and Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine to revive this former abode of Jacque Carlu, the architect of le Palais in the '30s. La Suite Elle is open from May 8th 2010 to 2011, which gives you exactly one year to visit the almost LSD tripping stripey spaces.
