Undertaking AZ ‘s ‘Southern Sanctuary’
“This house sanctuary is filled with vibrant and playful colours that encourage inside pleasure, peace, and extremely personalised moments of refuge,” mentioned Undertaking AZ designer Ahmad AbouZanat. We love all the pieces about it, from the Andy Warhol-inspired floral rug to the curvy pale pink DeMuro Das serpentine couch.

Including to the attract: glistening gold star Serena & Lily wallpaper and Cambria customized quartz flooring. “I wished to completely immerse company within the stars,” Alexander added.
Schooler, Kellogg, and Firm’s ‘Her Dressing Room and Closet’
We’re obsessive about this beyond-chic area. For starters, the sheepskin rug is insane. However the pièce de résistance is the jewel box-like closet crammed with swoon-worthy classic Chanel and fabulous Michael Faircloth customized robes.
We additionally cherished …
The Views. This home has them — in spades. Our favourite is from the marble tub the first tub.
The Kitchen Islands. That’s plural. Veteran Kips Bay designer Christopher Peacock put in a pair — one for prep, the opposite for entertaining. A cool characteristic of the latter is that the sink doubles as a beverage cooler.
Wallpaper. It’s in all places. Baboon monkeys swing from bushes within the kitchen. Deco ferns adorn the studying room. Tartan plaid graces the research. And in the lounge, Chicago-based designer Alessandra Branca coated the sky-high ceilings with climbing tropical vines. “We discovered an effective way to have a good time the peak with Casa Branca’s Foglia wallpaper,” she mentioned.
The Out of doors Areas. The grounds are really spectacular. Kudos to Harold Leidner, who executed the property’s authentic driveways, perimeter partitions, terraces, lighting, drainage, and landscaping. “Our start line goes again to the Nineties once we labored on panorama design for the unique proprietor of this home,” he mentioned. This time round, there’s a “nature-focused idea,” together with rehab of the entrance yard’s pure creek.
