Charm City

by Breeze Giannasio in

Just posted on Houzz a handful of photos of my Patterson Park home, which was open over the weekend for a neighborhood tour of historical homes. Built in 1857, it has all the charm befitting a home of Charm City. Hundreds passed through and I'd say it was a great success!  Still need to get a killer shot of the front parlor, which I think is the showstopper of the house! Photographers, please help!

Soho Beach House

by Breeze Giannasio in ,

I have an unexpected business trip down to Miami this Wednesday and have the pleassure of staying at the Soho Beach House.  It's a fantastic concept - Soho  House was founded in London as a private members’ club for those in film, media and creative industries. Happily they've expanded to Miami, among other places.  Haven't been since a few Art Basel's ago and eager to be back.   As nice as being there may be, I'm much more excited for the business opportunity of course.  More to come in due time!

Jean Louis Deniot

Paris-based designer Jean Louis Deniot can do no wrong.   His choices may be eclectic but always refined.  He often cites the designs of Adolph Loos for "exactness", Dorothy Draper for "the theatrical side to design", Renzo Mongiardino for his "collector's spirit", and Peter Marino for "couture-style luxury".  How awesome is that?  Here are a few emblematic interiors.
