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

Kelly Behun's Long Island Oasis

Although I'm more of an interiors gal, I have a soft spot for amazing architecture and outdoor spaces. So, you can imagine my excitement upon viewing pics of Kelly Behun's Long Island home. Designed by Brian Sawyer and John Berson, the house is a series of connected pavilions with floor-to-ceiling glass walls that open onto views of minimalist landscaping and the Atlantic beyond. It may just be the perfect summer retreat. I think I'm in love.

Friday Fashion: Olga Kurylenko, One to Watch

Olga Kurylenko for Vogue Ukraine

Today, I'm featuring a lesser-known-but-just-as-beautiful beauty who's building quite the acting resume. Former model Olga Kurylenko has already starred opposite Daniel Craig, Ben Affleck, and Tom Cruise; her current projects include Starz series Magic City and a new film with Pierce Brosnan; and Olga was named "It Girl" in American Vogue's July issue. Not bad for someone largely unknown five years ago. Here she is for Vogue Ukraine in looks by Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Haider Ackermann, and Balmain. Learn the face, this girl is going places.

Interiors: L.A. Home of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent

L.A. Home of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent

I must say, I was rather surprised by the quirkiness of Nate Berkus's and Jeremiah Brent’s L.A. home. Built in 1939, the house itself is a unique blend of mid-century modern and traditional architecture. For example, the living room's modernist wall curves in juxtaposition to a fireplace mantel that's seemingly from a different time. Furnishings range from iconic Knoll to Nate's own line for Target, creating a relaxed and masculine retreat.

Although Nate and Jeremiah are California natives, the home reads a little more East Coast chic than California cool. I can imagine the all-black master bedroom as part of a Manhattan bachelor pad, and the shearing-upholstered armchair seems too cozy for a warm L.A. night. But I suppose this is what should happen when all of life’s experiences come together into a new home; the space becomes a reflection of past, present, and everything in between.

Interiors: New York Apartment by Todd Black

New York Apartment by Todd Black

I think I love this home because its living room color reminds me so much of my own. Nearly seven years of the same wall color and I can't bring myself to change it! Todd Black must share the same appreciation, using a tranquil blue (at least it looks so in certain lighting) for his client's main living area. Of the apartment’s overall palette, the homeowner notes that it's "glamorous, but not girly," as well as a perfect complement to the garden terrace, which sits in the shadows of the Empire State Building. Glamour and serenity in the heart of the city!
