We get a lot of style inspiration from hotels. And we also get a lot of style inspiration from Paris, one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. So what could be better than to combine the two? Here are few decorating ideas to steal from three of the most stylish hotels in one of the world's most stylish cities.

The hotel Le Pigalle, named for the formerly seedy, erstwhile red-light district where it's located, mixes Parisian elegance with a bit of a punk-rock vibe. In the mix: a little bit of marble, lots of bright white linens, midcentury furniture, and, of course, lots of vintage photos and posters.

Looking at images of Paris' Hotel Henriette, the best word I can find to describe it is "sweet," but there's nothing at all sickly or cloying about this design. In one guest room, pastel colors meet minimalist furniture for a fresh, dreamy look, while the lobby provides a nice counterbalance to the pale colors used elsewhere.

The Hotel Panache in Paris' 9th arrondissement has a bit of an Art Nouveau feel, brought out especially by the elegant curves of the headboards in each room. The restaurant downstairs is a creature of two worlds — an elegant Paris cafe, but with a fresh update for the 21st century.
