‘In a turquerie tent, forming a glowing alcove off the coolly white and brown living room, the swathes of linen are printed with a design copied from a book of Persian art…’

‘In its details, its precise attention to proportions, the living room of this Roman penthouse is a study in subtleties: beautifully fitted near-white fabric on the walls; whipping-white carpeting; white Tibetan wool on chairs.’

‘In the guest room, walled and hung in a lush print designed by Valentino, a Spanish bed and a painting of Napoleon’s son…’

‘In the dining room lined with Chinese red fabric, Louis XV Genoese chairs surround a glass and metal table by Alessandro Albrizzi.’

‘From the library with its black alligator table, seventeenth-century rock crystal objects, and zebra rug, a view from the terrace.’
