Few places have as strong a magnetic pull as Greece. Truth be told, any photograph of the sparkling blue Aegean Sea, like the one on our cover this month, makes me long for a holiday there. And don’t even get me started on Greek-island style. The house where that image was snapped—and every other residence in our International Style issue—is absolutely packed with inspiring details. A spare iron canopy bed serves as a romantic alternative to a living room sofa. French doors are flung open to sun-dappled terraces, trim stripes and leafy prints cover nearly every cushion, and floors and ceilings are painted the color of the sea and sky just outside. In São Paulo, meanwhile, at the first home they’ve ever designed, Brazil’s famous Campana brothers paved a pure-white kitchen with…

Sister Act Despite some backlash from the public, the feature on the homes of Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian [“Double Vision,” March] was truly exceptional. Every photograph clearly showcased each of the sisters’ personal style. I fell in love with Kourtney’s sophisticated yet cozy residence, while Khloé’s place exuded romance with a Mediterranean flair.

EXHIBITIONS CALL OFTHE WILD “Unlike any other art form, a garden is designed for the future, and for future generations,” opined Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx (1909–1994), a modernist pioneer who eschewed imported flowers and symmetrical formal schemes in favor of curvaceous swaths of lush native flora and sculptural lily ponds. Having completed more than 2,000 gardens over the course of the 20th century—discovering nearly 50 plant species along the way—he has certainly left a lasting mark. (His namesake firm remains active under the direction of designer Haruyoshi Ono.) But as a new exhibition at Manhattan’s Jewish Museum explores, he hardly stuck to just one creative path. On view from May 6 to September 18, “Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist” brings together his iconic projects—the graphic mosaic sidewalks of Rio de…
