“Creating thoughtful, playful and luxurious spaces.”

The luxury of location. The luxury of space. The luxury of light. The luxury of finishes. The luxury of details. It’s luxury in Notting Hill by Peter Mikic.

This Greenwich, CT historic home has EvErYtHiNg. Drama and grandeur as soon as you walk through the front door, eye-popping colours, patterns and textures, and such incredible attention to detail that every room requires careful inspection such that nothing is missed. A masterpiece designed by Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey of SCW Interiors.

Trad with a twist

“He redefines a free modernity that isn’t opposed to the past but rather incorporates historical references, a discrete ambience and a taste for the intimate while also being daring with bold combinations and through the imaginative use of light and space. Casiraghi delights in overturning the codes of interior design with surprising contrasts: neon light with ancient mirrors, precious fabrics with industrial resin, and antique furniture with extravagant plant displays, always with a seductive harmony and an invitation to travel, sometimes calm, sometimes exotic.”

It’s a marriage of timeless classicism and modernity, a respect for the past with an exploration of the new. A cursory glance and you think “Ah yes a lovely traditional Parisian apartment” but look more closely and you’ll see the twist. It’s like adding spice to the dish. Apartment in the 7th arrondissement of Paris by Fabrizio Casiraghi.

Jo shared the 17th century, 3,300 sq ft Milan palazzo of designer Vincenzo De Cotiis a few years ago and I recently stumbled upon it again and because it truly is one of the most exquisite homes I have ever seen I wanted to share it again. This is what taking the time to peel back years and years of layers can get you. And when you leave it raw and untreated, it is absolutely magical and something to be revered for years to come.
