Sandow media and Luxe Interiors+Design sponsored a fabulous event at the Delamar Hotel in Greenwich, Connecticut yesterday. Jennifer Matthews, the energetic, enthusiastic and extremely talented Group Publisher of Luxe interiors + Design put together an incredible afternoon to evening elegant affair. Following a hard day working in the garden, I quickly showered, put on high heels and black little dress and drove to the Delamar. The setting was stunning, a perfect blue sky, the entire courtyard and walkways were devoted to luxury goods, from men's fashion to cigars, champagne, exotic sports cars, yacht, beauty products... all the toys for a very affluent group of people. Women were elegant, men sporting yachting attire. The Luxe cabana was designed by Jiun Ho whose work I have admired for many years. Jennifer made the mutual introduction and I really enjoyed chatting with him. We have so much in common, our love for Asia, design sensitivity, travel, biking...
From the lounge, Estera, Interieurs project manger, and I wandered around, from the outrageously beautiful cars to testing champagne, chocolate and latest beauty products and finally took our shoes off and entered the "dream lifestyle"of yachting. I have spent my younger years with summers on the atlantic coast where my father docked his boat in Arcachon. These were fantastic times and I have kept a deep love for the sea. Once we set foot on the amazing Ohana, 154', I was hooked ! (hard not to be....)
Bugatti... not for a discreet ride
Aston Martin...a truly elegant beautiful powerful car
This boat is simply amazing,the design and configuration maximizes every square inch for a beautiful, contemporary luxurious interior featuring 3 bedrooms.
