The name Sukio comes from the Japanese word for "like" or "love" but now has become synonymous with what I find luxe, lovely, and too chic not to share! My aesthetic of choice: MODERN GLAMOUR – a style that marries multiple ideas, viewing traditional notions of glamour through a sophisticated lens. In a word, it’s sooo Sukio! - Desiré

Interiors: A Modern Lisbon Retreat

Lisbon Home designed by Pinto Basto

Hat tip to Preciously Me for finding this luxurious escape on the outskirts of Lisbon, Portugal. The palette is neutral, the accents are interesting, and the architecture is killer. In fact, the latter deserves a post all to itself! I'll focus on the interiors for now—a mix of the organic, modern, and occasionally swank—but throw in a poolside shot for good measure. It's pretty dreamy.

Interiors: A Feminine and Glamorous Master Suite

Master suite by Roman and Williams

You may have heard that Jenna Lyons sold her brownstone a few years ago, which left many of us wondering about the fate of its fab interiors. Luckily, homeowners Vince Clarke, founding member of Depeche Mode, and wife Tracy Martin, chief executive of Brookyln's Morbid Anatomy Museum, have taken good care of the place, bringing their own unique style to every nook and cranny.

Now, the first floor may not be my stilo, but the master and sitting room? Oh yeah! It's a sophisticated rendition of pink and purple with details perfectly suited for the home's interior architecture. Sooo good.

Inside the Exhibit: The Glamour of Italian Fashion

The Glamour of Italian Fashion, V&A Museum

I recently dreamt that this exhibit magically made its way to a nearby museum for my viewing pleasure. Alas, no! The Glamour of Italian Fashion, a comprehensive look at Italian fashion from 1945 to present, is only viewable by the lucky ducks who can make their way to London's V&A by July 27th. You never know. That could be me. But as a cautious optimist, I'll make do with this virtual tour.

Here's a peek at the year’s most talked about fashion exhibit—that is, of course, until the Costume Institute opens theirs next month.

Interiors: At Home With Joseph Dirand

Joseph Dirand's Paris Apartment

You've seen his work everywhere, but how does the architect himself live? For its spring design issue, T Magazine takes us inside the home of Joseph Dirand–a beautifully minimal Parisian apartment shared by his girlfriend and two daughters. The designer admits that he didn't approach the space as "a project" (i.e., something to show clients or be photographed for the New York Times), but sought to create a home where he could simply enjoy life. "It's not a décor," notes Dirand, "...it's a real home."
Whether project or real home, I think I love it.

I especially appreciate his design philosophy and the thoughtfulness behind each decision. From a palette of not-quite-whites to the simplicity of a wooden box, learn more about what makes this apartment work and designer tick over on the New York Times
