In this volume’s opulent pages, you will find a spectacular range of houses from around the globe, from the cover story featuring the Villa Limonaia in Florence, a centuries-old palazzo with an illustrious past, restored to its former glory; and the Alabang residence of second generation architect Gil Cosculluela, which is like a playground for grown-ups featuring a bold animation graffiti mural on its front wall and cherished art toys side by side iconic furniture pieces including the Serie Up Big Mama chair designed by Gaetano Pesci for B&B Italia.

And in London, the South Kensington flat of Hannah Cecil Gurney of the magnificent luxury hand-painted wallpaper de Gournay was featured, as well as celebrated designer Kelly Hoppen’s stylishly chic residence that occupies a former auction house space.
