I’ve always admired the late Oscar de la Renta not only because of his amazing career in fashion but also because of his exquisite taste in interiors. So when his eponymous brand contacted me a few weeks ago to do a collaboration with them I was over the moon.
Every single item from Oscar de la Renta’s home collection boasts beauty. Vivid colours and chic prints on high-quality materials create timeless pieces that you’ll use over and over again. I especially liked the cutlery, it works perfectly with any kind of table. The green lattice plates are another favourite of mine, and the tortoiseshell tray and the brass vases…well I love everything (packaging too!)
Here are the pictures I took at home with some of the beautiful creations. You can see & buy the whole collection HERE .
Williams Sonoma has partnered with Aerin Lauder to create an exclusive collection that reflects the tastemaker’s signature style. Inspired by her philosophy that living beautifully should be effortless. The collection showcases blue and white tableware, rattan trays and ice buckets, pretty cushions, woven furniture…Palm beach chic at its very best!
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit Susan Deliss’s Nothing Hill studio. Susan was another ‘Instagram discovery’ and I was looking forward to meeting her. Stepping into her lovely studio was like entering Aladdin’s Cave: old and new silk ikats, embroideries, kilims, velvets and linens…a feast for the eyes!
Deliss had always been passionate about textiles but it wasn’t until 5 years ago when she decided to set up her own company. Previously she used to work as a lawyer for an investment fund , and back then she would use any spare time on her trips (very often to the Middle East) to source fabrics for her ever growing collection.
She works with very skilled artisans that help her to translate her designs into reality. Susan’s attention to detail left me speechless: the colours, the texture,the pattern…she surely knows what she wants and the result of everything is simply impeccable.
Below I’m sharing some images of Susan’s home in rural France which was featured in House and Garden last summer. (Photography by Paul Massey)
