When our exquisite friends, the illustrious designer Robert Couturier and his husband Jeffrey Morgan, invited us to spend a weekend with them at their most sublime home in Kent, we of course jumped at the opportunity. Visiting them in their Connecticut paradise is simply something that one should never ever pass up.
And it probably goes without saying (but we will) that our weekend visit was heavenly — superb company (and we’re including their adorable shih tzus in said company) the natural grounds, exquisite interiors, delicious food — all absolute perfection.
For your own vicarious getaway, do procure a copy of Robert Couturier: Designing Paradises. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the book really is a must-have — a master class, not only in interior design and architecture, but also in the art of living well.
I’m photographed (top) dressed in my own on version of country chic lounging in the Couturier / Morgan living room. I’m sporting a Paul Stuart Scottish cashmere sweater coat, Tom Ford grey cashmere turtleneck sweater, Gucci wool/cotton check pants,Tom Ford era Gucci black suede loafers, vintage Rolex, cashmere silk foulard print scarf from Eric Kipp, and my fragrance is Tom Ford Oud.
