Hound’s-tooth pattern: nothing new, and yet it never gets old. This traditional Scottish textile pattern (typically black and white) constantly reinvents itself, never looking dated. The one constant effect is the touch of class and sophistication it brings to a room regardless of its application (entirely upholstered pieces, accent cushions).

Palazzo Chupi

A couple of days ago I read an article about Julian Schnabel's residential endeavor on the Western edge of Greenwich Village. I had heard about Palazzo Chupi and seen some images in the past, but I never really took the time to really look into it. Glad I did! It's great to see people being sensitive about their living environments, what's even better is how they translate this sensitivity, creating very cool and unique interiors .The most successful spaces (at least according to me) are often the ones that have personal significant touches, furniture or Art that is meaningful to those living in that space. Have a look at this very spectacular residence with Moorish, Turkish and Venetian touches reinterpreted "a la" Julian Schnabel.
