Renaissance Man

Pauric Sweeney masterminds his luxury bag empire from a buzzing Florentine Palazzo, then cycles to his minimalist family home. Although he is responsible for some of the fashion world’s most sensual and seriously lusted-after handbags, it when you discover that he originally trained as an architect that parts of the jigsaw start falling into place. For a man with such artistic bent, it’s not surprising his studio is in an ancient palazzo near Santa Croce. Parts of it date from the 14th century and the floors and frescoes are original... view interior feature Pin It Now!

The couple’s hands-on and creative abilities were well used around their house... view interior feature Pin It Now!

For Berlin-based artist and alternative musician, a former print works with a walled garden proved the perfect place in which to set up home and studio. I put a bathroom in what had been the chemical lab and painted the walls grey. Cezanne had grey walls in his studio….

Private Collection

When an art director and a curator bring their work home, there isn’t a corner of the house that doesn’t have a breathtaking design in it. It can be caged-couple time when spouses live and work together but the art dealer Ben Brown and the curator Louisa Guinness carry it off with some style. They live in one of Notting Hill’s airier pockets, with their children and a whole bunch of art. The house can cope - it’s pretty big - but each room packs at least one museum-sized punch... view interior feature Pin It Now!
