LUCIA TONELLI ELLEDecor.com Editorial Assistant “After 12 years, I’ll be heading back to Tortoreto Lido, a sleepy little beach town on Italy’s Adriatic coast, with my brother and father. We’ll be vacationing during Ferragosto, which is like the Italian version of Memorial Day and Labor Day all rolled into one.” STAUD BUCKET BAG “A statement bucket bag is my summer go-to. This leather-and-macramé version is beachy, but it also works across seasons.” $375. saksfifthavenue.com RELAIS CHRISTINE “This is a charming boutique hotel framed by private gardens.

why don’t you stay awhile?

I HAVE AN AFFECTIONATE NAME FOR MY FRI ENDS’ houses in the tony enclave of the Hamptons, where I am a frequent houseguest. I call them Amanjudi, Amanjana, and Amanjenny. If you don’t get the joke immediately, let me explain. The famed Aman Resorts, a collection of exotic hotels that launched in 1988, boast some of the world’s most incredible architecture and landscape design by such iconic figures as Ed Tuttle and Kerry Hill. Aman is a gold standard in the hospitality world; its resorts’ subtle details inevitably end up trickling down into the domestic worlds we inhabit every day. I credit Aman with the gunite infinity-pool craze (no more Hockney blues!) that suddenly seems to be de rigueur. Other luxury chains, such as Four Seasons Hotels and Belmond, clued…

crystal palace

NEAT ROWS OF VINES surround Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey on all sides, their grapes ripening in the sun. Lalique is doing some serious branching out here, too: The French luxury brand reopened this 18th-century Bordeaux wine estate as a five-star hotel last year. It’s part of an ongoing effort to push beyond Lalique’s traditional realm of crystal objets and into an expanded lifestyle proposition that includes interiors, hospitality, food, and wine. With its terra-cotta roofs and Moorish accents, the biscuit-colored compound sitting on acres of working vineyard has the aspect of many a Bordeaux château. It’s the svelte, twinkling interiors that set it apart: Deco Revival furnishings, inlaid-glass accents, crystal Champs-Élysées chandeliers dangling from exposed-beam ceilings. The sprawling bathrooms are of beige marble, and you could fit one of the winery’s flatbed farm…

Can a hotel be luxurious but have mediocre design? JLN: There are quite a few examples around the world. Tell us where in the world, and maybe we can guess. JLN: Dubai. La Réserve’s owner, Michel Reybier, hired Jacques Garcia to design hotels in Paris and Geneva. How does he ensure that each property has a unique look? JLN: He challenges Garcia to get the best out of him each time. When the pressure is on, designers don’t repeat themselves. Is there anything you would change about Garcia’s design for La Réserve Paris? JLN: Nothing at all. It’s not by accident that it has become the number-one hotel in Paris, according to certain travel magazines. Tell us about the newest La Réserve. JLN: This fall, we’re opening a 40-room hotel in Zurich—La Réserve Eden au Lac—which is designed by…
