The other day I was talking with a friend (more fantasizing really) about which interior designer would we hire to decorate our homes. None of us had a clear name in mind but I must say that after seeing Nina Flohr’s London home, Veere Grenney would be my perfect match. Greeney knows how to find the right balance between modern and traditional, his use of colour and pattern is superb and the spaces he creates always look so chic yet comfortable. As in Grenney own words “It’s not about living grandly or modestly but about achieving harmony, comfort, proportion and a sense of beauty that is right for that person and that place”

Count Raniero Gnoli calls home to a treasure trove apartment located in a Palazzo in the Lazio region. But one wouldn’t expect less from Gnoli. He is one of the world’s greatest authorities on Roman and Byzantine marble, a scholar of Tantric Buddhism, and for more than 40 years a professor of Indology at Sapienza Università di Roma. He recalls beauty as a prime necessity and this home is a complete reflection of it.

There were so many things that caught my eye when I first saw this Long Island cottage in Architectural Digest a few months ago: the wonderful pattern mix, the blend of East and West elements, the bohemian yet sophisticated look of it…and the list could go on and on!
With the help of Peter Marino and Pietro Cicognani (of New York’s Cicognani Kalla Architect) the owners of this home, known as Woody House, created a perfect seaside retreat which reflects their far-flung travels through Europe, India and the Middle East yet maintains the casual atmosphere of a beach-front cottage.
