PRIVATE PARADISES1. A PALM BEACH POOL.2. TABLESCAPE IN COMPORTA, PORTUGAL.3. WHITEWASHED CATALAN COUNTRY HOUSE.4. CARA DELEVINGNE’S CLOUD–PAINTED BATHROOM.5. WITH DELEVINGNE AT A MOVIE PREMIERE.Comporta, Ibiza, Palm Beach, Catalonia, Jaipur: a bucket list of dream destinations where the living is easy and sheer natural beauty defines the allure of the land. In this, AD’s annual Travel issue, we visit exceptionally blissful holiday homes in each of these locales. Jacques Grange takes cover honors with the circa-1930 Spanish-style villa in Palm Beach he decorated for an internationally based longtime client. The house is a little bit Hollywood (the “Sinatra bar” has a Palm Springs Rat Pack vibe) and a little bit continental (the chic, lush pool cabana reminds the homeowner of Antibes’ Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc), but ultimately it is very Grange, who…

1. A NUAGE ADDS A COLORFUL POP TO THE MIDCENTURY FRENCH DECOR OF DEALER MIQUEL ALZUETA’S BARCELONA HOME.2. A 1957 NUAGE.3. PERRIAND AT THE EXPO SYNTHÈSE DES ARTS TOKYO IN 1955.After visiting Kyoto’s Katsura Imperial Villa in 1940, Charlotte Perriand developed an obsession: the shelves.“[They were] arranged on the walls, in the form of a cloud,” the French designer wrote in her journal. “A free form that gives rhythm to space and enhances the objects it supports.”Nearly a decade later, she unveiled Nuage (French for “cloud”), a modular bookshelf that could be rearranged in various configurations, thanks to sliding panels, trays, and shelves. Perriand marveled at the way simple components could create entire walls or pieces of furniture. The first renditions were made of wood—due to war rationing it was…

BUILT BESIDE THE AN CUU CANAL IN HUE, AN DINH PALACE WAS THE PLEASURE DOME OF KHAI DINH, VIETNAM’S PENULTIMATE EMPEROR.1. MURALS OF NGUYEN-DYNASTY TOMBS LINE THE GILDED ENTRANCE HALL.2. THE REAR OF THE VILLA IS MIRRORED IN A VAST ORNAMENTAL POOL.“It was a place for pleasure, to be alone, to meet friends, to play cards.”—Andrea Teufel, conservationistWhen the Duke of Phuong Hoa—young, artistic, sickly—acceded to Annam’s throne in 1916, he took the regnal name Khai Dinh, meaning “augur of peace and stability.” The emperor’s personal taste, though, shook up Hue, the imperial capital. If he had to be the puppet monarch of a French protectorate (today’s Vietnam), then he would do it by synthesizing Sun King swagger with his own cultural traditions. Thus, Cung An Dinh, a captivating pastry…

ARTIST CHRIS WOLSTON SURROUNDED BY SANDCAST CREATIONS.Chris Wolston was on a Fulbright grant in Colombia, researching manual and manufactured modes of production, when he became obsessed with an object that embodied both: the humble aluminum hot-chocolate pitcher in his apartment. “Everyday objects here have a handmade quality,” the rising design star says by phone from his current studio in Medellín. (He splits his time between there and New York.) “They’re like individual sculptures.”Though Wolston originally came to Medellín to study pre-Columbian ceramics and brick-making, his newfound material crush took hold. First he tracked down the pitcher’s producers: a team of local artisans specializing in sand-casting. Then, observing how they melted soda cans, engine blocks, and other discarded scraps—shaping the metal in molds of sand—the RISD graduate began forging his own…

ZERVUDACHI’S SUNLIT PARIS STUDIO, AN ALADDIN’S CAVE OF PROJECTS OLD AND NEW. (BOTTOM: FRANÇOIS COQUEREL (2))“NATURE IS ALWAYS MY INSPIRATION,” sculptor Manuela Zervudachi says one morning at her Paris studio, a venerable metal-and-glass hut that, appropriately enough, resembles a little greenhouse. Here a bronze tree candelabra sprouts, there a bark-textured door pull waits, left over from 200 pieces of hardware that her twin brother, Tino, an AD100 designer, ordered for a client. Zervudachi traces her themes to childhood, when she and Tino shared a tree house and searched the skies for the heavenly bodies that also inform her oeuvre, from monumental (a staircase) to mignon (a ring). The siblings grew up to be creative forces in a clan of Greek financiers and Irish war heroes, but the similarities end there.…
