Happy holidays everyone.  Enjoy the season!

The problem with Thanksgiving being late is that now Christmas is early! Technically we have a mere 21 days to panic. I swore I'd be ahead of the game this year- but alas- as per usual- NO! Oh well, happy wrapping!

In Brian J. McCarthy's new book Luminous Interiors, just released from Stewart, Tabori & Chang, Bunny Williams writes in the forward that Brian "has an incredible eye and passion for art, always seeking new talent. Because of this knowledge his projects are always unique, and the variety is that of a truly great designer." How true! The work throughout is divergently diverse and it is abundantly clear that this is a man who listens carefully to his client and avoids the "branded " look- no two projects are alike.

Although the book features nine luxurious residences, I chose to focus on one as I had the privilege of seeing this spectacular hotĂȘl particular- an Atlanta property and intense collaboration between Brian and a very talented friend of mine, architect Peter Block. To say the home is extraordinary is quite the understatement! After thirty-five trips to Europe and a collaboration with the venerable Feau & Cie in Paris, a fantasy was realized. The grandeur, opulence, layers and intricacy of this home are stunning in every imaginable way possible.
