Vive La France, Day 2

A tour de force of pattern, color, and texture—would you expect anything less from a leading force in French fashion? Christian Louboutin, originator of the much-coveted, red-soled chaussures, opts for a softer hue in his bath [I'd peg it as being somewhere between periwinkle and wisteria] but turns up the drama in the materials selection. A wall of fan-shaped, irridescent tiles contrasts with slabs of bookmatched stone whose veining suggests—to me, at least—a waterfall.
