{Elle Decoration August 2010}

The August issue of Elle Decoration is all about escape and has numerous spreads on exotic home tours, so, given it's no secret that the Greek islands are a some of my favourite places on Earth, it will come as no surprise that I'm crazy about this issue. I mean, tell me it's not love at first sight with those shutters and ocean blue pool (1) on the cover?! Then, a few pages in my current Jonathan Adler fave appeared (3), followed by an ever-welcome dash of yellow (4). Next up was a mirror so OTT I had to share it (5); me thinks this would look great in Vegas! In your average home? Not so much. Still, utterly fabulous! Still dying from that cover image? No fear, there's a full home tour two-thirds into the mag (6, 7), from which point onwards we're treated to the best in exotic escapes. First up there's fashion designer Viviane Vidal de la Bavhe's Saint Tropez home (8); a garden room to really escape to (9) and the best is saved until the end - namely, Paola Navone's summer refuge on the Green island of Serifos (10, 11). As the cover says 'Dive in', guys, this issue will charm you something silly.
