Design Miami

Art, design, five star service, it is all about the details. I have always cared about the details. This explains why I now work for the Mandarin Oriental and wear my Clefs d’Or keys with great pride. I realize, however much I care for details, I will never have the eye of my husband, a professional photographer. Usually when we go out, he sees ten things, while I might only notice five. It is a bit frustrating, to be honest. I feel that I am missing out. Luckily, there are always his photographs to look at. So this is what caught his eye while visiting Design Miami, one of my other favorite fairs during Art Basel.

Welcome Back Art Basel Miami Beach

Art Basel Miami Beach, the most prestigious art show in the Americas, is back for its 10th edition! For many reasons it is one of our favorite events of the year. First and foremost, Art Basel has led to the transformation of Miami’s cultural scene. It has placed Miami on the map of the contemporary art collector and art lover. No longer are we a town of beaches, sun and palmtrees.
