I like the way this table is partially used as an extension of the kitchen counter. It clearly isn’t a seamless extension but that’s what I like about it. It makes it more charming that way.

Now this is a bean bag I can get behind or, uh, on top of? 

(I also really like that shirt!)

Chhatra Sagar in Rajasthan, India

Chhatra Sagar comprises of a handful of luxury tents situated on a dam overlooking a reservoir in the desert of Rajasthan, India. The dam was created in the nineteenth century by Thakur Chhatra Singh of Nimaj. The camp is an updated version of the 1920s hunting parties hosted by the Nimaj family.

Berlin Apartment

Images from Christian Boros and Karen Lohmann’s apartment in an old bunker in Berlin.

Super sexy living room. My favorite pieces of furniture: the leather and wood chairs just in front of the art hanging on the wall, the low L-shaped couch with soft looking through and the bright pop of red from the Kate Moss photograph and it’s contrast with the more neutral, earthy tones of the living room.

The library. I really like the unfinished look and uneven texture of the concrete walls. The purple velvet chairs are pretty rad.

Nice vignette. Gorgeous Mies van der Rohe daybed. And I really dig that desk.

The Taj Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur, India

I just got back from 4 months of traveling, 3 of which were spent in India. Along the way, I came across some beautiful hotels worthy of mention. The first hotel that comes to mind is the Taj Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur in the Rajasthan region. It’s a gorgeous hotel and famously known for its unusual location: floating on an island in the middle of a lake.

Formerly known as Jag Niwas, the Taj Lake Palace was built in 1743 as a “pleasure palace” for the prince Maharana Jagat Singh II. It is now owned by Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces. The hotel retains its original Mughal style architecture (i.e. domes, arches, stone lattice work) and is beautiful decorated with lush pillow cushions for sitting on the floor, intricate gold gilding on the walls and rich hues.

I love the combination of colors in this room: the earthy brown of the couch, the warm white walls and the gold gilding. The couches work perfectly in this room in that they continue the tradition of sitting on the marble floor but are an updated, more modern and slightly more upscale version of that tradition.

This room is just gorgeous! The whole room is awash in blue and purples hues. And, the marble work is just incredible. You can really see it in this room. The detail in the pattern on the walls and the door, along the curve of the arched windows and in the window just to the right of the door.

This bedroom is kind of wild. The mural on the wall is really something.

This bedroom really got me. It totally taps into my weakness for a gold/green color palette. Then, the high contrast chevron floors! And, of course, the gorgeous sitting area by the window. Sigh…

Incredible 16th century French chateau owned by Charles de Ganay.


Even Charles is a sucker for the taxidermy trend.

His home looks like a fairy tale.

More antlers.

I’m not really a fan of this room but I do really like those chairs.
