One of my favorite homes

An amazing Herve van der Streaen chandelier and a English convex mirror glam the Vienne bench.  
I love this entrance so much so that I have it in my inspirational board since 2006.
The London townhouse of Princess Marie-Chantal Miller of Greece and her family, designed by François Catroux, has been one of my favorite homes.  This home was published in House and Garden magazine in 2006 and it still feels so up-to-date.  The neutral, warm palette throughout is revived with contemporary art.  The incredible art collection mingles with Herve van der Straeten exquisite pieces and custom furniture by the Francois Catroux.  Many people would think that this house is too formal but, besides being the house of a royal family, it is a house that's also located in London which would call for a more formal environment than a house in the country or in the beach.  
Marie-Chantal poses in front of a Donald Baechler.  If anyone out there wants to give me a gift, please make it a Donal Baechler painting.  Thank u :)
 Another Viennese ebony & silver chair looks gorgeous against the rest of the upholstery pieces.
T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings designed dining chairs surround a custom made table by Catroux.  The chandelier is by Claude Lalanne and the mirror is Herve van der Streaten. 
Or if you really want to be nice, you can also give me a Jean-Michael Basquiat.  Just like this one or any other.  Enjoy!
