country couture

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is grab a coffee, curl up on the couch, and dive into the September fashion issues. It’s just a simple indulgence for me. The photography is so inspiring,  and with each turn of the page I feel whisked away to a world of shameless beauty.

One of my favorite stories appeared in Vogue. The model? Juicy Couture co-creative director, Gela Nash-Taylor’s romantic English countryside manor.


Left: The Jacobean drawing room, with its Queen Anne chairs and Chippendale sofa, is fit for royalty. The curtains are in Robert Kime for Chelsea Textiles “Hardwick” embroidered cloth.

Right: The antique fabric at the windows, antique toile on a Victorian slipper chair, and an 18th-century mirror on the mantel make Gela’s daughter’s bedroom perfect for a princess.


In the Chinoiserie Suite, de Gournay wallpaper and a Victorian four-poster bed with custom hangings.


The chandelier is like icing on this decadent bath.

Right: A 19th-century Sicilian chandelier and a harlequin set of Régence bergères in the loggia.


Seriously, these photographs are like chocolate for the eyes…dark chocolate.
