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 Glamorous and Eclectic Madrid Apartment (and the sofa is pink!)

Marta de la Rica's Madrid Apartment

I noticed that all of my posts look the same lately. So, to shake things up, I turned to Spanish designer Marta de la Rica and her eclectic-yet-glamorous Madrid apartment. Though the palette is relatively subdued, Marta injects loads of visual interest with unexpected art, accessories, and design choices, like a central wall covered in reclaimed cabinet doors. Of course, I was immediately drawn to the curvaceous, pink tufted sofa; it's a bit of old-Hollywood glam in modern-day Madrid.

Friday Fashion: Margot Robbie for Violet Grey

Margot Robbie for Violet Grey

How utterly and marvelously glamorous is this fashion shoot with Margot Robbie?!?! It's technically a beauty editorial (notice her flawless makeup), but I'm totally digging her take on menswear–an impeccable pantsuit, crisp white shirt, and bling around the collar. Well played, Ms. Robbie.

Interiors: Swedish-Modern in Melbourne

Toorak Residence by Hecker Guthrie

Although I haven't read so explicitly, this Melbourne home by Hecker Guthrie feels very Scandinavian to me. There's lots of white, modern furniture, and quirky accessories with the distinct feel of far-northern climes (Check out the stag's head in the dining room). The kitchen may be my favorite space. The marble is delish and the sunlight is plentiful.

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.
