High Style: Tabitha Simmons

I’ve asked a few people to be featured in the book from whom I didn’t hear back.  Former model and stylist turned shoe designer Tabitha Simmons was one.  But it all makes sense now. The five story townhouse that she shares with her husband photographer Craig McDean and her family is featured in the February issue of Vogue. There is no competing with Vogue or Tabitha’s fabulous style for that matter.  Architect Annabelle Selldorf blew out the back walls and replaced then with lovely paned  glass windows and doors that let in lots of light.  Landscape designer Miranda Brooks created the outdoor areas that further convince me that I definitely want to live in a townhouse and not an apartment building someday. Maybe I should making shoes.

    What a beautiful house! Both the architecture and decor are stunning.

    But I do hope you at least received a decline instead of no response at all? No matter the talent, the obligations, etc. I always think it’s good manners to respond back with something at least! 🙂

    That’s a really beautiful home. I wonder which home will be your favourite of all those you cover for your book?

    What a stunning home! The light that comes in is incredible.
    Her furniture selection and fabric combination is lovely.
    Thank you for the inspiration.

    To have a town home with all of those windows and doors letting in the light; heaven!

    This is a fabulous shoot. I am a great fan of Annabelle Seldorf. Her firm Selldorf architects are clients of our showroom and I have furnished a few of her clients. She is a brilliant architect!

    The butterfly on the floor. Is it painted? Or a rug? Amazingly lovely!

    Those little boys!! So beautifully innocent and happy–what more could you want? Except, of course, that bone mirror is to die for. Mary
