We’ve made it to Volume 30! That’s 150 moments of inspiration we’ve shared so far. This week we’ve got a major property listing, a lovely light bohemian living space, the sharpest (pun!) hotel, an AirBnB that we just might be priced out of, and a beautiful grassy garden.
It doesn’t look like a home where a lot of beer-swilling takes place, but this $29,000,000 estate has been in the Guinness family for nearly 80 years. Luggala rests on 5,000 acres in an Irish valley, and boasts a gorgeous main home and several guest quarters, but the real stunner is the countryside. The property includes a private lake and some of the most amazing views imaginable.
We are majorly crushing on this living room by Twofold LA. It’s bohemian without feeling cluttered, and has such a great mix of textures: the deep blue velvet sofa pairs surprisingly well with the sheepskin-covered rattan lounger! That triangular bookcase is just so simple and unique, it’s such a great focal piece. And don’t even get us started on that shibori wallpaper. WE. CANNOT. EVEN.
Designer Dorothee Meilichzn embraced the unique shape of Paris’ Hotel Panache by echoing the angle of the building in the entirely custom space. From geometric mirrors, kilim-inspired broadloom carpet, triangular desks, and there’s hardly a right angle in sight. Inspired by the era of the similarly-acute Flatiron Building, Dorothee designed Thonet-esque headboards and coffee tables that are to die for.
We doubt she even had time to explore every room during her weekend in Texas, but this is the 10,000 s.f. mansion that housed Lady Gaga for her epic Super Bowl performance (via AirBnB). There’s plenty of room for an entourage, and tons of entertainment space: a resort-worthy poolside, full gym and sauna, private movie theatre, multiple bars, and the ultimate grill area. So if you’re in Houston and have a spare $10,000, you’ve got yourself a night at Villa Encantado.
Literally just a really lovely garden, including oversized grasses and and beautifully simple louvered back wall.
