I love when I get tips to check out unusual architecture and designs. This time, I owe credit to Home Owner Nut Iris, who tipped me off on the ultimate of Haute couture house exteriors designed for — who else? – the Elvis of Haute couture, Pierre Cardin. If you’re ever on your way to Cannes (of course), drop in for a gander at the Palais Bulles. The Bubble Palace was completed in the town of Théoule-sur-Mer with its astounding Mediterranean views in 1989. It’s been the mecca for Cardin pilgrims ever since.
Beam me down
Seen through a porthole of an adjoining room, the palais house exteriors seem an invention of a 1950s Sci-Fi movie colorist. You’ve got to visit the Palais Bulles home page and wander around…virtually.
Bubble dress architecture
And why wouldn’t the couterier to the stars who first designed the 1950’s bubble dress want anything less than fizzy pop for these interiors? It’s a pretty dreamy bedroom, don’t you think? Dornob has a good selection of Bubble Palace photos.
Room for all your trendy companions
I found this room with a view at Izismile. The Bubble Palace has 28 round bedrooms, all cushioned by wall-to-wall fluff and lights that change the mood of the room as the world turns. The villa overlooks a 500-seat cliffside amphitheater that leans out over the Mediterranean.
Passage to plush
The creator of Maxim’s loved circular shapes. The hallway resembles a passageway for the visionary race of Krel from Forbidden Planet.
