MAD ABOUT ROSE UNIACKE HOME

Rose Uniacke is known for an approach that is rooted in her ability to create calm, understated, comfortable interiors. Her unique skill is in responding to a room’s original context and sense of space, and allowing these elements to provide the starting point from which the design grows.

By pairing fine antiques with well-chosen contemporary details and allowing rooms to breathe, Rose’s interiors have a sense of ease, restraint and sophistication.

By bringing an instinct and a vision to her work that goes far beyond the tried and tested solutions when choosing the key elements of an interior – furniture, materials, finishes, fabrics and colours – Rose plays with visual expectations, making refined spaces that are of the highest quality, while remaining approachable and welcoming.

PINK IS THE NAVY BLUE OF INDIA

Very close to the Rambagh Palace, in the old part of the city, the building dates back to 1729 and is one of Jaipur’s most venerable royal palaces, though it was substantially remodelled in the 1930s, and the overall look now is Art Deco.

It was the home of the remarkable and infinitely glamorous Gayatri Devi, who having been born into royalty and married the Maharaja of Jaipur, ran for parliament in 1962, standing against Congress for the Swatantra Party and setting the record for the world’s largest landslide victory yet recorded. She died in 2009, aged 90, after an adventurous and extraordinary life that took her from purdah to prison and back to her palace.  

The Rajmahal “had been the old British residency, which we had converted into a guest house and remodelled again for our own needs. 

All of which it seems to have retained in its 15 suites (a further 15 will open by the end of 2015), though its interiors have been redesigned by Adil Ahmad, of Charbagh GoodEarth, one of India’s most modish decorators, with what its distinguished proprietor, Jaisal Singh, calls “vigorous flair”.

NEW VERELLEN SOFA IN TOWN

REJOICE! NEW VERELLEN SOFA STUNNERS HIT TOWN

 

If they’re good enough for Calvin Klein’s own digs, they’re good enough for us.

 

The US sofa maker inspired a generation to splash out on big-boy American sofas in beautiful Belgian shapes and linens that strike the right note for casual laid-back living.

 

Loved by every style guru in the world, they are the kind of timeless staples with good bones, that will make you and your interior feel young and vibrant, and come in colours that will outlast fashion, (grey to gunmetal to ecru), that you can take through life.  

 

You won’t go wrong with Camille, Duke or Logan and for dining chairs, opt for Isabella which graces some of the best interiors from New York to London. New to the range are Kate, Hannah, Klara and Gus who join around 100 designs. 

 

There are generous American styles with linen slipcovers, vintage looks with a 1950s vibe, formal upright affairs with curved arms and super-mod padded cocoons.  

 

Plus wingbacks, occasional chairs, and ottomans, all with incredible attention to detail. Think thick cushioning, double stitching and fabrics unlike anything you’ve seen before. 

 

Like all classics, Verellen looks fab in pretty much anything, and anywhere. 

 

You’ll want the whole range.

MY HOME IN THE MEDINA

Spring is here, summer at the door!

We are all in the mood for white, water, fresh feeling, and holiday.

This is the perfect house in Tunis, built like a “medina”, a labyrinth, where each room converts toward the middle patio.

Superb!
