Farewell to the chicest Embassy

James Costos created the chicest Embassy residence in Madrid with the help of his long-time partner Michael S. Smith. Now that Costos’s role as US Ambassador in Spain is coming to an end I thought it was worth to share this beautiful home one more time.

Orientalism

In 2004 Alberto Pinto’s “Orientalism” book was published. After more than 10 years, this book is still a little gem filled with beautiful images of interiors inspired by the colours and textures of Morocco, Byzantium, India, and beyond.

On today’s blog post I’m sharing this amazing Riad in Tanger which proves that Pinto surely knew how to create the perfect Moroccan abode.

Wonder Wall

When it comes to arranging artwork, I’m always in search of inspiration and new ideas. Here are some examples of how to make the most of your walls!
