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.

Interiors: A Contemporary Southern Renovation

A Contemporary Southern Renovation, Architectural Digest

I'm in a contemporary kind of mood these days, so I thought I'd share a post that has been waiting in the queue for such an occasion. I was immediately drawn to the corridor above, with large-scale photographs including Martin Schoeller's close-up of Angelina Jolie. It's just a taste of what you'll find in this palatial, Nashville home–i.e., neutral colors, beautiful furniture, lots of art, and a fearless use of scale.

Interiors: A Modernist Rio Retreat

Nathaniel Rothschild's Rio de Janeiro home

In celebration of the World Cup (In fact, I'm watching as I type. Go USA! P.S. I see you, Joe Biden), today’s post features interiors from the host country of Brazil. I can't be there right now, but I certainly can ogle the Rio de Janeiro retreat of billionaire Nat Rothschild. Nestled in the city's lush hillside, this home mixes the tropical feel of its locale with airy architecture, modern furnishings, and contemporary artwork. It's the perfect place for a relaxing vacation or, perhaps, a FIFA pool party.
