The Duchess Admires . . .

The London Home of Sol and Heather Kerzner

Mr. and Mrs. Kerzner

Monday mornings being what they are (coffee, Advil, hair of the dog), it's rather nice to enjoy un peu de calme, un peu de luxe. Calm and luxury are in short supply in the Duchess's household; when they do appear, they're covered in Crayola and dog fur. All this is quite alright, but it would be nice, now and again, to live in a soothing, inspired interior like that found in the London home of hotel magnate Sol Kerzner and his wife Heather.

A Dale Chihuly chandelier presides over the Baccarat dining table, like exquisite jewelry on a beautiful woman. Stunning.

In a sitting area Saarinen abounds.

The light-filled living room is dominated by a B&B Italia sofa atop a Consuelo Castiglioni rug (with Kelly bag as accessory).

The Duchess loves the serenity of this color palette and the restrained tablescape. Take a deep breath and say, ahh!
