Trip to Maison Belle Epoque, Epernay

I was very lucky to be taken on a trip, with my fellow Salon Members, to the Maison Belle Epoque in Epernay.  It is the champagne house for Perrier Jouet.  It was an amazing trip, made even better as I could bring the BF along too.

We only got to stay there for one night, that is the rule of the house, but we certainly got to enjoy our time there.

Here are the Salon members, surprise surprise with a glass of champagne

The house is beautiful, full of amazing Art Nouveau furniture.  They have the largest collection outside of a museum.  The best thing is you get to use it all.

Here are some photos of the highlights of the trip.

First up a bed designed by Hector Guimard (worth 300,000 euros).

We also went on a trip in the cellars, my first time doing such a thing and it was pretty amazing.

So many bottles!

If you are very lucky you get a shelf all to yourself for your own special champagne

The house was also full of amazing textiles, I’m doing a separate post about those to do them justice.

    Lovely – you all look to be having a great time! I especially love the armchair, and the mosaic under the flowers in the pic below that. I’m looking forward to reading your post on the textiles.
