Haute Bohemians by Miguel Flores-Vianna

Haute Bohemians review on www.CourtneyPrice.com

London based Miguel Flores-Vianna is a photographer and writer and has been an editor for more than twenty years. His photography is regularly published in various American and European magazines, and if you are like me, you have been saving his images for years. While his subjects are elegant spaces and places across the globe, there is something quite unique about his talent for seeing things in a way that others don’t- and his way of seeing things makes an enormous impression on those of us who get to see his work.  I didn’t realize just how much of a fan I was of his work until I flipped through the book and fell in love all over again with quite a few of my favorite design projects that I had torn from magazines over the years, like the one shown below.

Kelly Wearstler’s dog Willie

Susanna Salk and Stacy Bewkes have done it again with their AT HOME WITH series, inviting us into the posh homes of 21 dog-loving interior designers. We get to see just how much these top designers value the lucky dogs in their lives and how they thoughtfully design their homes around these pups. The designers provide resources and tips for designing with dogs in mind.  If you are familiar with Stacy Bewkes’ social media presence, you know to expect excellent photography, and trust me when I say that she doesn’t disappoint with this visual feast. Robert Couturier kicks off this dog & designer show with a beautiful foreward.

Hands down, hotel design is exponentially more creative than residential design. With laser-like focus, sensory details are designed to seduce guests into the vortex of the experience being offered, satisfy imaginations, and whet appetites for a return visit or recommendation. Hospitality design pushes the usual boundaries of design in ways that can make the strange seem familiar, and the familiar seem strange.

The 1st and only Baccarat Hotel, in Midtown New York, reimagines the elegance and perfection of the legendary French crystal maker into a luxury hospitality brand.  The beauty is in the details of shimmery neutrals accented by the rich baccarat red. [Read more…]

Miele New York Culinary Adventure

50BestRestaurantsAwards

Last month I had the honor of attending a New York Culinary Adventure which was hosted by Miele. Four of us were exposed to insider events and resources of culinary New York, which included the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards Gala. Our hosts planned a days-long feast for the senses that we will never forget. I’m still working off some of the incredible food we ate, and I can vouch that every bite was worth it.

If you know me personally, you’d know I want to throw a party and serve the unreal food we ate to all. Since that’s geographically impossible, we’ll just have to go heavy on images from a few of the trip highlights. That’s your cue that this post will be extremely image (rather than calorie) rich… [Read more…]
