Dreamlike and elegant, the City of Light fires the imagination of writers, poets and painters. With its magnificent architecture, glittering neighborhoods and world-renowned cuisine, Paris personifies chic.
The city’s exhilarating savoir faire inspired one of our iconic Master Suite lifestyles – the Paris Appartement collection, with its unabashedly elegant twist on “French accent.”
This extraordinary retreat brims with culture and the sort of refined craftsmanship that is nearly a lost art.
These furnishings are masterfully constructed by highly skilled artisans working with exceptional materials. For the solid mahogany Elle Silver Leaf Tri-fold mirror, wood sculptors work 15 days to chisel and hone the carving.
And you can see the thoughtful detail on the shoe ottoman in Our Secret Shoe Obsession.
Lush fabric, hand finishes and exquisite details, such as luxe brush fringe, medallions and nailheads, espouse romance and sophistication.
The result: a look both effortless and elegant, upscale yet unpretentious. See more in our Master Suite Lookbook.
Pristine sand, a gentle surf and a charming community steeped in history make Coronado Island one of the most desirable places to live and visit in the United States. Situated just across the bay from San Diego, this exclusive island community is the location for the 2014 Coastal Living Showhouse.
This year’s Showhouse is a 4,500 square-foot home, complete with sweeping ocean views, that is designed for its environment and ideal for entertaining. As principal interior designer Betsy Burnham says, “There’s a seamless flow between outdoor and indoor that’s nearly a necessity in this location.”
Burnham is owner of the acclaimed Burnham Design in Los Angeles. This project gave her the opportunity to showcase her knack for curating homes that are sophisticated, livable, timeless and personalized. Here, you’ll get a preview of what she did with the amazing outdoor spaces – using Frontgate teak and wicker outdoor furniture, of course. Check back later this month for a more extensive look.
A woman can never have too many pairs of shoes. It’s the storage and organization of all those designer heels, platform soles and slinky sandals that sometimes become the issue.
So imagine reaching into a beautiful tufted ottoman, easily selecting one or two pairs, then perching yourself on the expansive cushioned top to try them on. It’s like a well-heeled princess story. Yet it’s no fairy tale; it’s our Serena shoe ottoman.
With its button-tufted upholstered seating, dressmaker’s skirting and fleur-de-lis medallions, this exquisitely tailored ottoman keeps your shoes organized and easy to find.
Simply open the smooth hydraulic hinged top to reveal 15 fabric shoe sleeves encircling the perimeter. These removable pockets are the perfect place to keep your favorite in-season shoes at the ready or protect your special-occasion pairs from scuffs and dust.
Plus, the center section affords ample room for boots, belts or handbags. Use this versatile piece in a large closet, bathroom or in a master bedroom.
