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 Colorful Manhattan Apartment by Nick Olsen

A Colorful Manhattan Apartment by Nick Olsen

Staying true to his signature style, Nick Olsen injects color and glamour into every corner of this one-bedroom apartment. It's the perfect marriage of whimsy and sophistication, including hand-painted cabana stripes in the living room and a high-gloss entry that's so shiny you can see yourself. The bedroom, in navy, lavender, red, and turquoise, is my absolute fave. It's manglam tempered by the perfect dose of ladylike softness.

Interiors: An Enchanting Hideaway in the Heart of Istanbul

Hazz by Asli Tunca and Carl Vercauteren, Istanbul

Welcome to Hazz.

Meaning "enchantment" in Ottoman Turkish, Hazz is the absolutely exquisite Istanbul home of Asli Tunca and Carl Vercauteren. There's so much to love about this palatial beauty. Marble, oak, and Byzantine-era stone set the stage for antiques, custom pieces, and modern portraiture. Seven thousand square feet of eclectic luxury hidden in the heart of Istanbul. And the best part: you can stay here! Hazz recently opened as a B&B for weary-but-in-the-know travellers. It's a definite addition to my "must-stay" list.

Interiors: That Spanish Style That I Love So Much

Apartment by Miguel García de Valcárcel

It's true. I really do. Especially, when interiors perfectly balance the old and new, like the Madrid apartment of Miguel García de Valcárcel. The pine herringbone floors are undoubtedly my favorite thing. They are a key element of Miguel's design, unifying the space after tearing down its walls. The result is a harmonious, sunlit home oozing modern masculine glamour.

Friday Fashion: Lupita Covers Vogue and I Couldn't Be Happier

Lupita Nyong'o, Vogue US July 2014

Her Vogue cover story was inevitable, and this post on that story, totally predictable! In fact, I made a plea back in September after Lupita's stunning red carpet appearance at the Toronto Film Festival. "Dearest Vogue," I began, "Please, oh please, feature Lupita in an upcoming editorial. She's not only beautiful and apparently a great actress, but widely acknowledged as a rising style star."

Statement validated and wish granted! Less than a year later, Lupita has an Oscar in hand, a prestigious contract with Lancôme, and this gorgeous cover story. Wearing looks by Vera Wang, Rodarte, Givenchy, and more, Ms. Nyong'o takes us on a mysterious journey through the Moroccan city of Marrakech (and I couldn't be happier).
