I am in complete denial that summer is over. I am trying to mentally prepare myself to be frozen and miserable for the next 6+ months. In the meantime I will continue to deny the inevitable by staring longingly at summer homes such as this neutral, modern Montauk beauty by Alexander Design.
This stunning property owned in the small town of Noto, in the south of Sicily is 330 sq m with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and is owned and designed by Jacques Garcia and available to rent. The Maison des Oliviers, located on a World Heritage site, is surrounded by numerous olive trees dating back two thousand years. The Villa, surrounded in this landscape, evokes the golden age in the 1950’s Café Society and an aristocracy which embraced modernity while remaining linked to the past. Upon entering the villa, the collection of art and objects will transport you into the culture of the 20th century. One can imagine seeing Maria Callas chatting with Jackie Kennedy, being hosted by Gianni Agnelli.
I could not love this more, another gem that is in classic Anthony George style. Uniue colour combinations, fun fabrics, a bit of a tribal vibe, and a cute pup to boot.
Take a boring, highrise apartment completely lacking character, add lots of bold colours and patterns and artwork and you have yourself a knock-out! This Harlem apartment by designer Anthony George proves you can add so much personality and interest though paint and carefully curated furnishings, art and accessories.
“Like a sculptor who lives and works among hundreds of moulds, mallets and chisels. Like a painter who always needs his brushes close at hand to capture the colourful images in his mind’s eye. Like a couturier who receives his clientèle surrounded by bolts of cloth. That’s how Gert Voorjans lives and works in Antwerp.”
Bravo! A triumph of maximalism, visually stunning and not for the faint of heart. Atelier Hors Catégorie by iconic Belgian tastemaker and interior architect Gert Voorhans.
