Tour the Parisian Apartment Globe-Trotting Photographer Stephane Kossmann Calls Home

Tour the Parisian Apartment Globe-Trotting Photographer Stephane Kossmann Calls Home

They say “the seventh is heaven” of Paris’s Seventh Arrondissement, the upscale neighborhood that is arguably the city of light’s most aristocratic quartier. Famous for Les Invalides—the resting place of Napoleon—it’s also home to numerous government ministries, embassies, ex-pats, the musées d’Orsay, Rodin, and Maillol, and the city’s elite, with the legendary Eiffel Tower, visible across the neighboring Champ de Mars, as a punctuation mark.

Bernt Heiberg and Bill Cummings’s South of France Getaway Is an Understated Tribute to the Past

Bernt Heiberg and Bill Cummings’s South of France Getaway Is an Understated Tribute to the Past

Bernt Heiberg and Bill Cummings are partners both in work and in real life, and their getaway in the South of France—a pristine, dollhouse-like residence in the medieval hill town of Haut de Cagnes—is an elegant testament to their relationship. Which might make things sound like the home is a showcase of treasures they’ve acquired together over the years. But it’s more complicated than that.

Lexington Company Founders Kristina and Tommy Lindhe Live the Swede Life In a Leafy Suburb of Stockholm

Lexington Company Founders Kristina and Tommy Lindhe Live the Swede Life In a Leafy Suburb of Stockholm

A telling clue to the Swedish mindset is the popular word lagom, which roughly translates to “everything in moderation,” meaning anything flashy or boastful doesn’t fly. Most Swedes would be appalled not only at the American McMansion, but even at the very notion of ensuite bedrooms and baths. For Kristina and Tommy Lindhe, the owners of the home accessories and fashion firm Lexington Company, their house in Bromma, an attractive suburb of Stockholm, might be modest in size, but it’s vastly rich in family history and importance.

In His Native Venice, Donghia CEO Andrea Rubelli and His Family Practice the Art of Living in an Ancient Palazzo Near the Grand Canal

When you descend from a family whose name has been identified with luxury Venetian silks, velvets, and damasks for five generations, where else would you live but in one of the exotic floating city’s most venerable palazzi? And so it is with Andrea Rubelli, who resides with his wife, Sandrina, and their son, Leonardo, in a building near the Grand Canal that was old before Columbus arrived in the Americas.

In Their Home Overlooking Lake Zürich, a Family Savors Modern Living—and Staggering Natural Beauty

In Their Home Overlooking Lake Zürich, a Family Savors Modern Living—and Staggering Natural Beauty

Tucked into a hillside with sweeping vistas of Lake Zürich and the Alps of Lucerne, this secluded residence in the tiny village of Erlenbach, Switzerland, literally opens up to the lush outdoors and is a water lover’s paradise. It makes sense, then, that its owner, an international executive whom everyone calls E. T., grew up near Europe’s biggest waterfall, Rhine Falls, about an hour’s drive away. “Once you’ve lived close to water and overlooked a lake, it’s very difficult to move away from it,” E. T. says. “It has a very calming effect.”

Locust Valley- and New York- based Designer Jeff Lincoln Gets Away From It All at a Charming Cottage in Southampton

Locust Valley- and New York- based Designer Jeff Lincoln Gets Away From It All at a Charming Cottage in Southampton

"When it came to designing the interiors," writes Jeff Lincoln of his Southampton cottage, "I decided to embrace the cottage-y style of my house, rather than try to make it into something it’s not. While I am very decisive about what’s best for my clients, I am less so when it comes to my own place. It’s a fairly common conundrum for interior decorators: Confronted with so much choice for themselves, they often don’t do much in the end.

Boscobel, an 1805 Beauty Overlooking the Hudson River, Is More Resplendent Than Ever During This Special Time of Year

Boscobel, an 1805 Beauty Overlooking the Hudson River, Is More Resplendent Than Ever During This Special Time of Year

It’s hard to believe it was almost a teardown. “Boscobel, an early architectural treasure in the Hudson River Valley, is ready for the scrap heap,” read a May 12, 1955, article in The New York Times. The Federal-era jewel had been languishing since 1923, when Westchester County bought the circa-1805 house and land, in the riverside hamlet of Montrose, with the intention of creating a park. But it remained vacant and began to slide into decay, and in 1941, the county’s parks department decided to raze it.
