you all know how much i love montecito. it’s the most beautiful place and has been through a lot lately. i was there all of last week finishing an install. soon as i got home i saw the new architectural digest with this magnificent original reginald johnson home in monetcito decorated by atelier am. 

the interiors are signature atelier am. the perfect curation of magnificent furnishings and textures. italian gilt sitting next to murano glass, han dynasty vases adjacent to jean -michel frank chairs, giacometti lights shining on jean dunand tables. all this beauty is highlighted by rich neutrals and somehow feels full of restraint. 

montecito is one of my favorite places in the world. i will do about anything to celebrate it’s beauty and it’s special magic……and as you can see atelier am makes this very easy.
