Motu Tane

Motu Tane is a private island in French Polynesia. It is still so hot here in London, that I am going to imagine being on this tropical island enjoying the heat instead of in central London not enjoying the sticky icky heat. I’m not complaining or anything. The best part is that it is designed by Christian Liaigre. You can rent the private island for $40,000 a night. Enjoy!

Functional use of dark woods to minimize the bright sun. The red chair gives a POP and some energy to the room. The natural abaca rugs add texture. Perfectly complimentary palate of materials.

This might be my favorite spot. I love the brightly colored pillows with the dancing fire in front. I am OBSESSED with Christian Liaigre furniture. This stool is crafted and conceived to fit right into the environment. I would like one for myself!

I am in love

Rees Roberts + Partners are absolute perfection. I love everything they do. I am obsessed.


The texture on the fireplace is out of this world. The color palate is soothing and simple, creamy white walls, bleached wood, soft blues, sandy linens. David Weeks chandelier.



B&B italia chairs. Taraxacum light fixture. Smooth fabric walls….so sooooooft.




I could die in this kitchen. The view…the materials, the cabinetry!


David Weeks light fixture. It’s all so simple but so elegant.


Another David Weeks light fixture and sconces. B&B italia bed…one of my favorites, but you need a ceiling like this! A never ending looooooong clean thin window seat.



This sculptural light fixture is called the 21.50. It is stunning!

These Floors

Just loving everything about this space. The spiral stairs, the soft grey floors, the detailing of the floor vent.


Winter Time

Getting ready for winter! This looks cozy, no?



For Today

A little lightness. This is one of my favorite sofas….the extra wall. Which, by the way, will be in my future dream mountain house in a camel chunky weave fabric. Loving the linear horizontal fireplace. From Monica Mauti.



Expertly Acquired

This is gorgeous. Rose Uniacke. The organic coffee table is calling my name. It is beautifully paired with a simple classic sofa and creamy white walls.



The totally gorgeous home of Megan Mullally.


B&B outdoor daybeds. They are so gorgeous I cannot get over them!


So light and airy. Love the rugs by Mansour modern. Latin chairs by Christian Liaigre. A stunning antique Indian recamier from Susanne Hollis.


Photograph is by Michael Eastman. This indian bench completes this room.


This is way too adorable…dog bed by  In the Company of Dogs.


CaesarStone countertops, and whitewashed-oak cabinetry in the kitchen. This DVF rug for the Rug Company is way too fab…adds a great pattern and feel to the kitchen.




The ideal mix of elements. Photographs by Sze Tsung Leong…I could not have imagined a piece of artwork that is more perfect than these.





In a beach state of mind

By Stelle Architects.






Beautiful walnut cabinetry millwork. Love how it wraps up to the ceiling.



Crazy for this bed! It kind of looks like a smile.



This is where I will end my day.

St. Barths

A gorgeous architectural endeavor by Wolfgang Ludes in St. Barths.


This view and pool are incredible! Please, can I visit?


Flexform sofa. Citterio designed wood chairs, upholstered lounge chair and B&B Italia tables. Travertine was chosen to echo the sand below.


Hans J. Wegner Chairs. Citterio table.


I am totally in love with this kitchen. Island and cabinetry are wenge and the countertops are absolute black granite; the sink fittings are by KWC. Gorgeous and sexy!


Cotton netting by French Indies Design.



The master shower is wall of Balinese slate tile and the floor is travertine.

Let us visit

Just beautiful. This dining table is to die for! The top is one piece of slate. Stone, plaster and anigre wood, simple and effective. The small black stools are designed by Charlotte Perriand. Drapery fabric is Rogers & Goffigon.


Anigre wood floating staircase.



Restful color palate. Finn Juhl Pelican chairs, a Poul Kjaerholm daybed and Alvar Aalto table and wing chair. Look at that baseboard detail! The rugs feel like lily pads among the sea of light grey stone.


Andy Warhol’s Shadows series rests on a Jean Prouvé console.


The illustrious egg chair by Arne Jacobsen.


Blackened steel surrounds the fireplace.


Pendant lamps by Poul Henningsen hang over the kitchen table. Viking range and hood.
