Yves Saint Laurent’s Villa Mabrouka

Yves Saint Laurent’s Villa Mabrouka

Yves Saint Laurent’s Villa Mabrouka is known as the House of Luck. The Moroccan home represents a collaboration between two of the great French aesthetes of the 20th century: Laurent, who turned pantsuits and safari jackets into haute couture, and Jacques Grange, the only interior designer ever to receive the Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest decoration. Designed by the master of French interiors, Jacques Grange, the villa offers a blend of African and European influences. Perched on a cliff overlooking the coast of the Spanish region of Andalusia and the Strait of Gibraltar, the 9,688-square-foot home rests on nearly two acres of grounds landscaped by Madison Cox, featuring soaring palms, Italian lemon trees and extensive lawns. A heated swimming pool was excavated into the mountain rocks on which the estate stands, while a nearby pavilion was designed by architect Stuart Church.


Determine What Window Style Suits Your Home

Determine What Window Style Suits Your Home

Whether you’re remodeling a kitchen or bathroom or adding a bedroom, one of the most important decorating steps is choosing windows to match the architectural style of your home. For example, you wouldn’t use a zebra print shower curtain to complement a nautically themed bathroom. Likewise, pvc windows may not complement a contemporary casement window may not harmonize with the decor in your vintage-themed kitchen. The wrong window option can detract from your home’s style.


“Window styles can dramatically change the way you interact and feel in a room,” says Elaine Sagers, Pella Corporation’s vice president for marketing and customer support. “For instance, installing a wall of fixed windows that showcases a beautiful garden or scenic landscape can instill feelings of tranquility and peace. The right window style can enhance the mood in a room and the overall appearance of your home.”

Canadian Floating House by MOS Design

Designed by Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample of design office MOS Design, the combination cabin/boat dock is located on an island in Lake Huron, Ontario, and floats atop a structure of steel pontoons. This floating house combines country-cottage flair and a wonderful watery appeal for the swimmers, boaters and fishermen out there. Its breathtaking location and cutting-edge design is really a sight to behold both day and night. This floating house sits on the water among windswept trees and the characteristic, rocky Canadian Shield terrain – not an easy spot to built, but definitely worth the effort. This picturesque spot, a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland, provides the perfect backdrop for this island house, which has been described as a “necklace” of buildings strung around the island – a main cottage with an integrated boathouse and dock, and a series of separate cottages to accommodate the many overnight guests that clamber to spend summers here.

This beautiful country house belongs to the architect Daniele Bedini and is located in a remote corner of the Tuscany countryside.

Daniele Bedini bought it in 2003 and spent almost a half year rebuilding the house.

The furniture was mostly found at the flea markets and at the Daniele’s grandmother’s.
