The high-ceilinged drawing room and dining room lead to a spectacular terrace, the center of celebratory parties.

Serenity Now | Art & Home

IMG_8517

 Art & Home – April 2015

The latest edition of Art & Home is here! This month we’re showcasing tranquil, harmonious environments inspired by Asia that provide refuge from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

California$2,300,000 USD | Beverly Hills, California | Sotheby’s International Realty- Beverly Hills Brokerage

Because the external world seems to be in a perpetually chaotic and frenzied whirlwind, internally, serenity is always in style.Creating a calm, meditative state within one’s home with an environment that’s at once soothing, orderly and sophisticated, can be achieved by incorporating earthy colors with inspired furnishings and restrained accessories, so each room is a serene, tranquil haven.

Colorado$2,625,000 USD | Telluride, Colorado | Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty

The hallmark of this approach: Asian-inspired décor, which utilizes classic elements from exotic nations such as China, Japan, India and Nepal: a Mongolian area rug; an antique, blue and white Chinese vase from the Ming Dynasty; a delicately hand-painted Japanese screen; an ornately carved console or chest.  The Zen is in the details. “Clients want touches, not whole spaces, to look Asian,” said French native interior designer Marie Burgos.

North Carolina$7,800,000 USD | Raleigh, North Carolina | Hodge & Kittrell Sotheby’s International Realty

So the key to a successful design is not to recreate period rooms, noted New York City interior designer Geoffrey Bradfield, but rather to employ economy of design with carefully selected, refined furnishings that have clean lines, combined with a selection of ornamental pieces, for an eclectic effect. “Contemporary Asian styling is less ornate than in previous years, less formal and rigid,” added Andrew Hunter of Sotheby’s International Realty in Thailand.

Thailand$9,750,000 USD | Phuket, Thailand | Hunter Sotheby’s International Realty

Additionally, the principles of feng shui are sometimes utilized to emphasize an uncluttered, open flow throughout the spaces, and to accentuate harmony and balance.  To that end, New York-based Burgos incorporates the five natural elements –wood, fire, earth, metal and water—in her home designs.  The elements needn’t be literal, she emphasized.  The earth, for instance, can be represented with a collection of terra cotta vases or stone tiles. Fire can come into play via an interpretive lighting fixture, while a pop of red in a painting can serve the same purpose.   But it’s best to keep the overall color palette in neutral tones to underscore the desired intent:  a peaceful space.

Farm & Ranch Properties | An Extraordinary Market

In 2012, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand introduced the real estate market to the groundbreaking Farm & Ranch division via the launching of a new specialty market website. Farm & Ranch properties are much more than homes; with the pedigree that comes along with being a trophy ranch, polo property and a cherished multi-generational investment, “Selling these properties involves aspects of professionalism that are specific to the category,” says Bill Fandel of Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty of Colorado. “You must be familiar with everything from water rights to agricultural and zoning easements. Things you wouldn’t familiarize yourself with for a typical residential transaction.”

With experts in 40 countries, more than $3 billion in inventory, and an unrivaled vision in pairing buyers with incomparable trophy homes, the Sotheby’s International Realty brand has become nothing short of a dominant force in the specialty real estate market. Here is a closer look at some of the properties that make the Farm & Ranch market so extraordinary.
