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: Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan Design the Ultimate Modernist Retreat

Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan's Shelter Island Vacation Home

If Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan's Shelter Island home looks like one big Jonathan Adler catalog, that's because it is. Well, perhaps more like a living lab where the designer mixes, matches, and tests new products before making them available to eager fans. As for the home itself, the duo referenced the past to create their ideal getaway. "We wanted warm, rustic modernism... It’s a little California, a little bit Japanese, and a little bit Swedish," notes Adler. It's also seriously playful. How could you not have fun in a house like this?!?

Interiors: Inside the Luxe Townhouse of Keith Johnson and Glen Senk

The Manhattan home of Glen Senk and Keith Johnson

"My personal taste definitely leans toward traditional, but I love how things like artist-made furniture can make you look with new eyes at antique pieces in a room," says Keith Johnson of the home he shares with his husband, Glen Senk. It's a sentiment that can be seen everywhere, contemporary art and artisanal handiwork mingling with traditional furniture and architecture. His aesthetic is most likely inspired by many years of world travel/antique-hunting (Keith was buyer-at-large for Anthropologie) – super eclectic, surprisingly whimsical, with the occasional moment of glamour.

Interiors: Tangier's Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus

Tangier's Grand Hotel Nord-Pinus

Let's forget about winter, at least for the next few moments. Forget that half the country is blanketed in the snowy, icy disaster known as Titan, and imagine a place that's a bit warmer, a bit sunnier, and a definitely more exotic.

While the 10-day outlook for Tangier, Morocco hovers around the mid-60s, such temps are undoubtedly suitable for walking the Kasbah, dining al fresco, or whiling the day away at the Hotel Nord-Pinus Tanger. Its interiors combine both north-African and mid-East influences into a lavish-yet-comfy retreat for the winter-worn traveler. And its sweeping views of the Mediterranean are the perfect tonic for just about anything.

Welcome to the Nord-Pinus. Enjoy your virtual stay.
