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.

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.
