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: Ryan Korban's Sexy Chic Apartment

Ryan Korban's NYC Apartment

I'm not sure how a room can ooze sex appeal, but Ryan Korban achieves it with every design. I suppose it's his choice of furnishings and accessories, their color and texture. Fur is always a must, as are taxidermy and incredibly shiny objects. They all work together so well.

Ryan's apartment is a testament to this approach. Gorgeous and gray all over, the space is rife with sexy things, including but certainly not limited to monochromatic artwork, a stuffed zebra, and probably one of the best lamp collections I've ever seen.

Friday Fashion: L'Wren Scott Spring 2014 RTW

L'Wren Scott Spring 2014 RTW

When someone famous dies, it leaves most of us in a weird limbo: lacking our own intimate accounts, we largely rely on the anecdotes of others and a deep admiration of their work to fuel feelings of loss. Such was the case with L'Wren Scott's passing on Monday. I've never met the model-turned-stylist-turned-fashion designer but, nonetheless, was totally bummed.

L'Wren's clothes were beautiful, and although quite feminine, radiated a certain power and attitude. Fearless and sexy but stopping short of risqué, she walked the line so well. If necklines plunged, they did so tastefully, and clothes seldom required the shedding of undergarments in order to wear them.

In tribute to L'Wren's work and as a nod to spring (Hello, spring!), here are a few looks from her last collection, a Japanese-inspired symphony of embroidery, obis, and tailored silhouettes entitled Tagasode.

"L'Wren was a total perfectionist, someone who absolutely embodied everything her marvelous clothes stood for: strength of character combined with a confident and powerful style." - Anna Wintour

Another artist, another beautiful apartment. Today, I'm spotlighting the home of Jenna Snyder-Phillips, a fabulous abstract painter based in NYC. If you don't know the name, you may recognize her work. It's been featured everywhere, from Jonathan Adler catalogs to Flair's front windows to Ryan Korban's interior designs to her living room walls below. And Jenna's from Philly, so you know she's cool.

Interiors: Nicole Cohen Redid Her Digs and I Pretty Much Love It

Design by Nicole Cohen of Sketch42

And who is Nicole Cohen?? She's the creative force behind Sketch42, a place to showcase her design musings and abstract artwork. Nicole recently redecorated and the results are all kinds of good. Modern and glammy, artsy and edgy, there are curated surprises at every turn.

The black and white palette keeps it all coordinated and allows statement pieces to truly shine. Reminds me of Christine Dovey's place. Perhaps, the new trend is less color and more stuff (but only if it's fabulous).

Michelle Adams on The Coveteur

Michelle Adams, Lonny founder and Domino editor-in-chief, offers a look into her wardrobe over on The Coveteur this week. While there are many enticing fashion moments (Chanel, anyone?), I can't help but ogle Michelle's art and decorative accessories... Ok, the shoes too.
