Home on the Nile

Last night I received the Jan/Feb issue of Elle Decor in the mail.   When I saw the lovely cover photo of a seaside cottage in Portugal, I had to wince a little.  I've already seen this photo many times online, perhaps on Tumblr and Pinterest.

Ok, I do understand how hard it must be to get content into a magazine and considering how long it takes to get it published, it is just not as fast as it would be as something posted online.  But when I saw 2 or 3 other homes inside this issue that I have already seen before,  well it kinda bummed me out.

BUT, one home I haven't seen before and really fell in love with is Shoe Designer, Christian Louboutin's private retreat in the Egyptian desert near the banks of the Nile. I love how it is not overly decorated, the clean and interesting lines of the architecture and the traditional furniture that DOESN'T fill up the space..  Nice.
