Max Azria’s home

As one of the most renowned designers in the world, Max Azria lives a luxurious life to say the least.  And let’s say his life of luxury is more than slightly reflected in the way his home is designed.  And with reflection, I am not only talking about his obvious love for mirrors. Conversation pieces for sure and always a very nice touch to any wall or nook.

And check out the way the colors are played in each room as well; most of the rooms have muted colors but the touch of a cushion in fire engine red or a chair, tray in that vibrant orange add such a fascinating twist.

 It seems like Mr. Azria likes a little funky here and there as well – look at that pear-shaped cushion. How fun!  And of course, you can’t miss the seat in red stripes and the matching leg rest. Absolute gorgeousness!

 And what about that center-piece in his foyer?  Hah! It’s like a fountain with its water frozen in space.  With the water that seems to overflow on the floor, it just looks so realistic. Max Azria’s home is pure luxury indeed!  What do you think of the space?

Ibiza Summer Home

This is the Ibiza I dream about; the cozy and down to earth kind.  Its long and glorious summers is one of the things that makes it a favorite among holiday makers and I love how home owners and even hotels are inspired by this climate in designing their homes.

When you walk into this place, you’ll immediately get that Mediterranean atmosphere with their white-painted walls, white sofas and low-key wooden floor panels. These are the most common colors you’ll see in their living room, kitchen and bedroom. But they also provide a pop of color through bright multihued cushions, pillows, cabinets and table covers. 

And don’t we all love to bask in the warm sunshine at times?  Life with a hammock in the backyard…. dream! Can the summer just last a little longer please?

The Home Of Ginnifer Goodwin in L.A

Doesn’t Ginnifer Goodwin have that air of old Hollywood glamour about her?  I guess it’s really no surprise that even her home in L.A. radiates that same vibe. She has this particular room in her house where classic photos, all in black and white, line up one the walls. The cream paint color and brown accents simply add to the room’s old-fashioned quality.

 And what about that huge table in her living room? I also like how the designer played with the color in this area. And by the way Ginnifer collects owl figurines and sculptures; notice one perched near the fireplace in her living room.  It’s all so well put together making for a nice flow through the space, yet it looks well-lived in as if a designer never even set foot in there.  Sweet!

And what about the yellow table in her living room? I love how the designer played with the color in this area. And by the way Ginnifer collects owl figurines and sculptures; notice one perched near the fireplace in her living room.  It’s all so well put together making for a nice flow through the space, yet it looks well-lived in as if a designer never even set foot in there.  Sweet!

Brooke Shields Hampton’s Home

I loved watching Lipstick Jungle with the fabulous Brooke Shields and was so upset when the show didn’t get renewed.   When I came across her house in the Hamptons, I was pleasantly surprised to see a real, comfy Home and not a huge, over the top Mc Mansion like some other stars own.  How cozy is this place?

I love its neutral tones but it’s all together not too beige.  The combination with the blue sofa and dining chairs make you feel right at home.   The  patio chairs outside look so comfy!  Makes me want to go sit in them with a glass of chilled Sancerre and a few appetizers.  Do you have a favorite celebrity crib?

Casa en la Ladera de un Castillo

I like cozy, warm and livable.  Not sure if this home represents any of that but it is nevertheless beautiful and really interesting architecturally.  Its sculpture-like qualities make it visually pop out of the mountains behind it and I must say I love those white lines against that blue wall.

However…one of the first questions that always pops up when I see a place like this is ‘what if you have a book, a magazine or God forbid, a pair of socks laying around?’.  Doesn’t that disturb the entire design?  Because even though beautiful, it also just looks so perfect.  Maybe even too perfect?  Thoughts?  Would you want to live there?

House in Pozuelo de Alarcon

Now this is not what I am thinking of, when I think about Madrid.  I remember visiting a few years ago with a group of friends and we were in awe of its beauty.  From the Roman type villas to the ornamental palaces, everything just looked so majestic. 

1

Yet it is no surprise that Madrid has quite some modern and minimalist villas like this one designed by A-cero Architects.  I think I am especially in love with the indoor pool!  I also love the light walls.  I could see a photo shoot for Gucci there.  You know, model leaning against that wall, beautiful sunlight and then that water on the side.

What do you think?  And which style do you prefer?  The traditionally regal architecture that can be seen on the Gran Via or do you prefer this contemporary style?

Jade Jagger’s Home In Goa

Our garden might still be nothing more than soil but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream about waking up gipsy style and wander through the soft sand of an exotic beach in Goa India, right?  Jade Jagger has figured this out just so perfectly.  Hasn’t she also designed a few places in NYC by the way?  Now isn’t that the life?  Part time exotic beach – Part time vibrant city!  Well I wouldn’t say no!   You?

Manhattan Beach Home

How is this for streamlined perfection?  And I am not even talking about how the outside looks so graphically beautiful against the blue sky. The entire place portrays complete flawlessness!!!  Too flawless perhaps?  Well, I wouldn’t mind living there.

The outdoor space with the bed and fireplace! Dreamy, dreamy, dreamy!  I am more than a bit of a home buddy but with a home like this, looking out on the ocean on top of all other perfections this place has to offer, I don’t think I would ever leave my home.  Oh!  Daydreaming….

An Office Out Of The Ordinary

Well! Talking about spectacular! This office is something else!  Have you ever seen anything like it?  From the different textures from one wall to the next, to the ‘home in a home’ office space!  So different  yet very cozy!  I am also in love with their choice of pink.  It adds a soft feeling to the overall space without being girly at all!  I am very curious to know about their choice of flooring.  Anyone has an idea of what this is made off?  I can’t figure out if it is concrete or wooden panels that they painted.  In any case whatever it is, it looks absolutely amazing!
