This is purely a sharing post as there are so many pictures and stories in this issue.
I was going to do a proper chit chat about it but then the Vogue cover took over and I am super busy at the moment and haven't had any time to do one.
But it is the March issue so please browse through.
Always been meaning to go to Beirut and each and every time some stupid government turbulence happens and then I get nervous.
I am a sucker for desk accessories.
When I was younger it was Hello Kitty and now it's stuff like this.
Mr Corrigan knows his stuff so I will go back to Schumacher and look at samples.
Isn't Schumacher busy with all their new designer collections?
Retail standards are getting higher.
Bright lights don't cut it anymore.
Boutiques need to be a dressed as the women who walk in and out of those changing rooms.
I am such a sucker for Van Cleef but this store
looks like a cruise ship...
On to the piece that somehow didn't make the cover..?
Pierre Berge's home in Normandy.
He has several so one needs to specify.
His retreat is a Chateau in Normandy that has a dacha inspired home as one of the outbuildings.
Yes, he is the very Pierre that was Yves Saint Laurent's partner.
He was involved in one of the most successful spring cleaning sales of all time at Christie's.
Simply put, they had and he has still - the eye for detail.
He is the one that can get forgotten and eclipsed by Yves but he has had an influence on all of us through his influence on Yves.
If you haven't watched it yet then I recommend the documentary about their life, relationship, and the auction called
I don't understand how this kitchen is so simple, sweet, grand

This is part of the famous hydrangea walk that features more than 60 varieties of the shrub!
I love an outdoor covered walkway.
I thought it was referred to as canopied but
who am I to be contrary to AD?
The details in the wood are a bonus.
Inside and exterior of a caravan on the grounds.
Funny how luxe and a subculture of society always crosses over.
There was another home of a global figure which was the Manhattan home of the gambling mogul and art collector
I love art so my eye was drawn to the pictures instead of the decor.
The two pictures are opposite ends of the room that is a feature of the ipad magazine.
I think must be a very North American thing to have a proper bar and counter stools at home.
But then again, he owns hotels and oddly I feel like his home looks like a high roller's suite in Vegas.
I guess you can take the boy out of Vegas but you can't -
yes that old chestnut.
I had to laugh about having blinds when the view is of the park
but then I remembered that every home in the city
has a pair of binoculars.
Just a quick picture of a style I adore -
I don't know how to describe it properly.
But it is this entry hall and staircase.
Is it modern American colonial?
Truth be told, I don't have an opinion on this house.
But I do love New Mexico and would move to Taos tomorrow.
I never fancied him myself but his house is mcdreamy.
I found the cover odd after seeing his family picture.
His whole family is adorable so why didn't AD
include the wife and daughter?
Hope you enjoyed the issue and and have a great weekend.
I will reply to any comments but might be a bit slow. x
