Villa Magnan in Biarritz

Posted on Sun, 26 Sep 2021 by KiM

Built in the centre of Biarritz between 1927 to 1931, Villa Magnan was only ever inhabited from 1931 to 1936 by Spanish aristocrats. It then lay empty for 80 years until current owners Anne and Jérôme Israël purchased and restored it over the course of one and a half years. Its 1,400 m2 of art deco mostly pink beauty is absolutely spectacular, and you can book a stay via their Instagram account. What a dream!!!

La Maison des Oliviers

Posted on Fri, 24 Sep 2021 by KiM

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.

A bit brighter and more contemporary

Posted on Thu, 2 Sep 2021 by KiM

Sean Anderson‘s neutral, textured, vintage vibe is always present in his spaces, even when it’s on the brighter and more contemporary side. Every piece I want to go up for a closer look, and touch it to feel the softness or the patina. This home in Alabama is very neutral but there’s so much texture and warmth that colour is not at all missed. (Photos: Haris Kenjar; Architect: Tom Adams; Builder: Francis Bryant Construction)
