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: Jamie Drake's Swank Digs Part 2

Jamie Drake's NYC Apartment

Manglam: It's totally a thing (I proclaimed it so a few weeks ago), and no one does it better than Jamie Drake. I recently stumbled upon fresh pics of his fabulous Manhattan apartment and remain a fan of its swanky, in-your-face allure. The bedroom is especially delicious–in fact, I almost blogged about it exclusively. Lacquered walls, you had me at "hello."

Insta-Glamour: The Met Gala Red Carpet

Met Gala Red Carpet via Instagram@metmuseum

Last night's Met Gala was just as glamorous as I imagined it would be, and thanks to Instagram, I had a near real-time play-by-play of red-carpet action. I have yet to see every look, let alone pick my favorite, but these snapshots will do until then.

Whether in singles, pairs, or groups, the glitterati was out in full force!

Interiors: A West Hollywood Pied-à-terre

A West Hollywood Pied-à-terre. Design by Anne Coyle

Old, new, high, low, modern, and glamour all come together in this West Hollywood apartment designed by Anne Coyle. It's the home-away-from-home of TV producer Ellen Rakieten (of Oprah Show fame) who commutes here regularly from Chicago. Often traveling without her family, the space was designed as a glamour-girl crash pad perfectly suited to Ellen's tastes. A quiet SoCal retreat both kid- and hubby free, could this be every working mother’s dream?

Friday Fashion: Malaika Firth Rocks All-Burberry-Everything on The Coveteur

Kenyan-born model Malaika Firth sports head-to-toe Burberry Prorsum in this recent editorial for The Coveteur. Combining lace, embellishment, and pastels, Burberry’s collection was one of my favorites of the season, and Malaika proves it looks equally fab on the street as it does on the runway.

Interiors: A Bright and Eclectic Pacific Heights Home

Susan Greenleaf's Pacific Heights Home, San Francisco

Have you seen the new Lonny? Not only has the mag undergone a serious makeover, including a more responsive, readable, and searchable format, but May's issue is filled to the brim with decor and lifestyle goodies. I particularly enjoyed the Pacific Height's home of interior designer Susan Greenleaf. Furniture, art, and accessories vary room by room, from modern to traditional to the colorful to the colorless. Each space embodies Greenleaf's signature style, with juxtaposition and surprises at every turn.
