Room Interiors #12

Surely King Louis XIV would have adored this magnificent gold sunburst, glowing proudly on a wall inside the Tangier home of Nicoló Castellini Baldissera. The Leo in me loves it too.

Nicoló’s Moroccan home, called Casa Tosca, is just one of several colorful homes and gardens featured in his new book, Inside Tangier. It’s a gorgeous book, and one that you’ll want this holiday season. Thank you for the painting inspiration, designer, and Guido Taroni, photographer.

Room Interiors #11

James Kivior is the amazing talent behind @thepretentioushome on IG, and the creator of this magnificent tableau. His NY apartment is the epitome of maximalist style, with symbiotic explosions of layers, textures and colors. ... eye candy galore. One wall of his home is filled with framed Hermès scarves. (Be still my heart.) I collect them to wear, but he collects them to frame on his walls. So much fun going on in this one room alone, which he calls his kitchen.
