May cover star @Naomi Campbell first visited Malindi, Kenya, in the mid-1990s and returned again a few years later with a longtime friend, the owner of this Kenyan luxury resort, which houses a handful of private residences, including Campbell’s getaway. Just over an hour’s flight from Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, Malindi has long been a favorite of the Italian jetset. “All the locals speak Italian,” Campbell shares. “It’s like Little Italy in East Africa.” Explore all the beautiful spaces at our bio link.

Over the course of her remarkable 35-year career, supermodel @Naomi Campbell has blazed trails, stormed catwalks, and graced countless magazine covers. And while most of her legendary peers have long since retired and retreated from the spotlight, at 50 Campbell is as in demand as ever and enjoys a level of visibility models half her age would envy. But even icons need rest. And when it’s time to fully unplug, Campbell decamps to her villa in the tranquil seaside town of Malindi, Kenya.

The end result of this historic Portland home remodel is almost akin to a richly layered canvas. Stained oak floorboards are arranged in a herringbone pattern, while encaustic and custom-color ceramic tiles pair nicely with nearby wool and silk rugs. Luxurious curtains and woven upholstery fabrics can be found in more soft palettes, which are characterized by muted colors. “Paint was used very intentionally to define spaces and create moments of contrast,” adds Alisha Borden, senior designer at Jessica Helgerson Interior Design (@jhinteriordesign).

As soon as one approaches this Georgian Revival property in West Los Angeles—home to an esteemed movie producer and his young family—its classical, 18th-century-inspired architecture evokes an instant state of calm. A pedimented portico flanked by leaded-glass windows ushers visitors from expansive, parklike grounds into a house skillfully realized by architect Thomas Proctor and interior designer @elizabethdinkel, both based in Los Angeles.

“The bones are super strong and neutral, so the house has longevity, which is very key to how we do design,” designer Amy Storm (@amystormandco) says of this Chicago-area home. Guests who enter the house will notice the lack of closets at the front, providing a big, open space that encompasses the dining and living rooms. Those areas are mostly gray and white with pops of unexpected color. “Early on, the Petros had found this floral wall covering they loved that was bright and geometric, and gave us a good indication of what they were into,” explains Storm.

Before the pandemic took hold, @thegoodtimehotel was but a twinkle in the eyes of its creators, multi-hyphenate @Pharrell and Miami-based impresario @davegrutman. But its manifestation—a 266-room, city-block-long boutique hotel that officially swings its doors open in South Beach on April 8—is an expression of divine timing. “It’s such a funny thing,” says designer @kenfulk, speaking by phone through multiple masks, fresh off a plane to Mexico for a recent work trip. “Because it was always rooted in a place of optimism. Now, it just feels like it’s finally coming to fruition at the perfect moment.” Get an exclusive first look at the hotel at our bio link.

Every room in this 1930s Long Island house, several of them white-walled and as crisp as a seashell, actually feels the same way: casual, gathered, dégagé. “The histories of objects and the stories of how you repurposed them bring a lot of feeling into a room,” designer @asiabakerstokes explains. “It’s important for your spaces not to feel like a showroom.” Or to behave like one.

This Sydney-area home, clearly, is so much more than your standard desk-filled professional environment. Living next door in their family home with four sons, Jeremy Bull and Tess Glasson of design studio @alexander_andco not only view Alexander House as a testing ground and showcase for their work, but also as an extension of their own residence. “Outside of working hours, we use the kitchen, living room, and courtyard to entertain regularly,” Glasson confesses.

To stand up to the historic charm of this 1930s Oakland cabin, designer Becky Carter (@studiobeckycarter) incorporated furniture, textiles, and artwork with serious personality, sourcing in nearby Oakland whenever she could. “I wanted to reflect that relationship between this historical cabin and this incredibly youthful creative community,” she explains.

Indeed, there are elements of both upstate simplicity and Manhattan polish throughout the three-bedroom Hudson Valley abode. White shiplap walls, concrete floors, and iron-framed French doors provide a clean backdrop to an eclectic decor with frequent nods to Danish modernism. In this bathroom, we see a white oak vanity with Ceppo de Gre marble from @abcstone. The unlacquered brass mirrors are from @urbanarchaeologyltd, and the minimalist wall sconces are from @alliedmaker. Explore the luxurious spaces at our bio link.
