Haute Bohemians

If there is one book you should buy this year (or put on your Christmas list), it is this one. Hand down my favourite book. Maybe ever. The title Haute Bohemians could not be more perfect. This is bohemian with a glam factor, in some of the most beautiful homes in some of the most beautiful countries in the world. Layers upon layers, textiles and patterns and colours in the most unexpected combinations. Antiques, oddities, vintage pieces you won't see anywhere else. One of my favourite photographers is responsible for this book - Miguel Flores-Vianna. Miguel traveled to four continents to capture the homes of some very creative people. Artist Alexander Twombly's farmhouse and studio in Italy, textile designer Nathalie Farman-Farma's London home, landscape designer Madison Cox's home in Tangier, decorator Gert Voorjans' home in Antwerp and many more. This book will soon become dog-eared as I have already flipped through it several times since it arrived in my mailbox. Thank you Vendome Press! (Amazon link here)

Velona's Jungle

It's been a crazy week (I won't delve into it as I'm sure you've heard enough, but my day job involves the website that our friends to the south crashed which ended up all over the news) and before I get into this post, I just wanted to make quick mention of this special day. Today my Grandfather who was a decorated war veteran is in my thoughts along with all those who fought and died in the line of duty. I unfortunately did not know my gramps very well before his passing several years ago as he lived on the opposite side of the country for the majority of my youth, but he was a pretty cool guy and I was really proud of what he did for this country. Anyway, this week has been very emotional and continues to be, so I don't know about you but I could use some eye candy as a distraction, if only for a few moments. Thanks to the team at Studio Fotografico Francesca Pagliai for sending along these beautiful photos of an absolutely delightfully decorated boutique hotel in Florence called Velona's Jungle. (Interior design: Studio Sgroi)

Savor the flawless comfort and unique style of the guest suites at Velona's Jungle Luxury Suites, where many of the elegant objets d'art and furnishings date from the mid century, when the family's patriarch - a respected Florentine art dealer - began collecting pieces during his travels in Italy and abroad. His fabulous finds from trips through Florence, Rome, Naples, London, Paris, and Vienna in the 1950's were paired exquisitely with the prestigious antique and period furnishings from his gallery, creating a one-of-a-kind home.

Subsequent generations added to the original collection, carefully selecting works by contemporary artists, fabrics and decorative accents by favorite designers, and choice books and sculpture...each chosen with the same care and passion as their grandfather and together creating the glorious whole that is now Velona's Jungle.

This dining room is soooooo fabulous!!!!
