Memorial Day

Hope you had a good long weekend. Maybe some of you (ariel) spent it at the beach like this Interview Magazine did...(photo taken on my most recent trip to Caracas)

Stay VIP

A half finished restaurant, a garden, a fuchsia service corridor and part of a bedroom. Coming in September 2009, The VIP Hotel, Caracas, Venezuela.

From the Paris Flea

I got this vintage Eiffel Tower vase at the Paris Flea Market at Porte de Clignancourt for 4 Euro. I didn't imagine it here in my window but it's kind of long as the feather doesn't fly away.
The two e's.

I'm so into this store!

Merci, 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais-3rd.
Sadly you can't buy anything off the website, but if you go to Paris, definitely visit this store. They have 3 floors of loft space filled with furniture and lighting, clothing (YSL, Isabel Marant, A.P.C.,) kid stuff, plants, books--you name it!

Beach Cabana

My first order of business in Venezuela was going to the beach. I stayed in parents beach cabana for the first time. We designed it keeping the original 50's structure intact. We have to give big props to Marina (mom) who had all the cushions made from fabric she had purchased in Oaxaca, Mexico

The VIP Hotel after dark

I arrived today to Caracas, Venezuela, among other things to oversee the progress of the hotel we've been designing for the past two years. The exterior lighting is almost done. This is the first pic of more to come.
