Tour a Dreamy Family Escape High Above Cannes

Louetta R. Clark

With a rare 360-degree view of Cannes and the Lérins Islands, this family residence is full of natural light and a color palette inspired by the Mediterranean below. Designed by young interior architect design duo Humbert & Poyet, the house is the perfect expression of indoor-outdoor living. Founded by Monacan Christophe Poyet and Parisian Emil Humbert in 2007, the creative studio has been putting the finishing touches on projects from Monaco to Hong Kong, Dubai, London, and Mexico City, to name a few.

When Humbert and Poyet signed on to the project, the residence was merely a concrete shell. The owners, who began the projects several years prior, had decided to halt construction for a period of time. “We received a modern, open to nature, raw structure, and we had to finish everything,” recalls Poyet. “All the flooring, the windows, the surfaces—everything.” The owners, whose primary residence is in Paris,

As with all of its bestsellers, the manufacturer also offers the aircraft as part of its Boeing Business Jet line-up, which caters to the ultra-elite that require airliner-sized private jets when they travel. Unlike its wide-body siblings, however, the 787 Dreamliner can make its flyers feel good about taking to

Designer Achille Salvagni on the Power of Pushups and the Definition of Success

Click here to read the full article.

The designer Achille Salvagni is known for an aesthetic that combines modernity and restraint with a keen appreciation of age-old skills and luxe materials such as bronze, onyx and mahogany. Salvagni freely acknowledges his debt to the architectural heritage of Rome and its living craft traditions; his designs are made to the highest of specifications for an exacting global clientele. But for all his love of the ancients, he also feels a kinship with more recent masters such as Gio Ponti and Jean-Michel Frank and spent a year and a half earlier in his career studying at Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology. Consequently, Salvagni is very much his own man, a contemporary figure as happy designing an interior for a superyacht as for a palazzo. One of his latest projects has been for himself: He opens a new showroom in London this spring.

An Eclectic Home With “Good Vibes” and Personality to Spare

There are DIY wannabes—and then there’s jewelry and fashion designer Ambre Dahan, who purchased her dream five-bedroom home in Los Angeles, then designed and decorated the entire thing herself. As in, without a contractor. “I painted everything. I redid all the bathrooms. I redid the kitchen. Put gates outside. I did some of the garden. I painted the kitchen floors,” she says over coffee in New York City’s Bowery Hotel during Fashion Week. “But I loved it. I’m a designer, so for me, design is all the same.”

When she first bought the 1920s-era house in 2017, she was lured by its sprawling garden, giant pool, metal windows, and good vibes, but she also couldn’t resist the house’s backstory. The seller was screenwriter Barbara Turner, who raised her two daughters there (one of them is actress Jennifer Jason Leigh); Dahan would be moving in with her own two daughters. (It’s
