The Mediterranean is a place where the past is very present and centuries ago meets the new age, every day. Old World spaces are morphed to host our current culture, an electric and eclectic one. The Med Sea is beyond vast and encompasses many cultures. Luckily for us, Laurent sails off the southern coast of France, and the Pride in his home made us partial
Our deepest desire for our space was to celebrate art, new and ancient—collaborating with artists who have rose-tinted our personal travels throughout the area. Victoria and Laurent discovered the radiance of Atlelier Martin Berger’s custom Marquety Wallpaper on a buying trip and got to experience the studio where he force rakes through his medium to create striated perfection.
LA Artist Victor Wilde designed the Victor Vaserelly-inspired Optic Art bolster pillow on the bed, topping off the coziness of layered linens, reminiscent of bleached sheets strung above paved stone passages Coté Sud. He also enlivened our appreciation of the distinct vivid blue of the sea. The sale of his pop of childhood wonder will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Teddy is available on our website. We aimed for modern—as Dahli said “have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.”
