Carolina Herrera Báez at Home in Spain

carolina-herrera-baez-junior-home-house-spain-architectural-digest-3-bedroom

Carolina Herrera Báez’s country home in Cáceres, Spain has long been a favorite so I was naturally thrilled to stumble upon these images from Architectural Digest’s Spain edition. The daughter of fashion powerhouse Carolina Herrera, Baez is the brand’s creative fragrance director. Today she splits her time between Cáceres and Madrid with her husband, famous bullfighter Miguel Báez , and their three children–Olimpia, Atalanta, and Miguel. From the pink sofa to the claw foot tub, the home strikes the perfect balance of feminine and rustic. What I would give for an invite to join their countryside jaunts!

Christopher Spitzmiller at Clove Brook Farm

If you admire Christopher Spitzmiller’s striking lighting you’ll love his upstate New York home, Clove Book Farm. Published by Architectural Digest, the Hudson Valley oasis is a Greek Revival farmhouse that is as colorful as it is classic. Spitzmiller shares the home with his partner, decorator Sam Allen, and collaborated on the interiors with their fellow design-minded friend, Harry Heissmann. The home is brimming with storied pieces including a table that once belonged to Bunny Mellon and a hooked zebra rug once owned by decorator Albert Hadley. I love all the traditional touches from the kitchen’s Dodie Thayer lettuceware collection to the guest room’s monogrammed Leontine Linens. The handsome property has me dreaming of an upstate escape…

Cotton House Hotel Barcelona

cotton-house-hotel-barcelona-spain-10

This gorgeous new hotel in Barcelona caught my eye on instagram. I’ve only been to Spain once and now the Cotton House Hotel has me itching to get back. I love the mix of the canopy bed, mid-century light fixture, and sumptuous blue velvet sofa in the Damask Suite pictured above. The hotel is housed in an historic 19th century building that was once the headquarters of the Association of Cotton House Manufacturers. Adding this Spanish getaway to my bucket list…
