With the help of Peter Marino and Pietro Cicognani (of New York’s Cicognani Kalla Architect) the owners of this Long Island home created a perfect seaside retreat reflecting their far-flung travels through Europe, India and the Middle East yet maintaining the casual atmosphere of a beach-front cottage.

In 2000 Luggala was thoroughly redecorated, albeit in a style that recalled its previous incarnation. For this assignment, Garech Browne called on the services of two friends who knew Luggala well and were sympathetic to its distinctive character: David Mlinaric and Angela Douglas. They planned to restore the house architecturally to its appearance c 1810, yet keep some elements of the Fifties interior decoration, which had their own charm. As Browne put it, “David decided it should look quite different, but exactly the same.” Textiles, particularly the house’s original wallcoverings, were a special concern. Pugin had designed the paper for the drawing room, Gothic Lily, which was also used in the Houses of Parliament; Mlinaric commissioned John Perry Papers of London to reproduce the paper from the original blocks, which they still had. It’s a great backdrop to Browne’s collection of 19th and 20th-century paintings – notably by Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. More on the blog (link in bio) Photo by Simon Watson #luggala
Luggala Lodge was built in 1787 and Gothicized thereafter for La Touche family (Dublin bankers of Huguenot origin). In 1937, Ernest Guinness bought Luggala and gave it as a wedding present to his daughter, Oonagh Guinness, on her marriage to Lord Oranmore and Browne. Oonagh quickly made the place party central. She “imbued Luggala with enchantment” and made it “the most decorative honey pot in Ireland”, as an obituary observed on her death, at 85, in 1995.

Last week @johnyunis dedicated some great Instagram posts to the wonderful #quintapatiño . Two years ago I wrote a blog post about this Portuguese gem and John has been so kind to credit the images he found through my blog. (This might sound a normal thing to do but nowadays is not. I remember that It took me days to find all the images- I LOVE researching! ) Its always so nice when someone says they found / discovered something because of your blog 💙 ! 📷 Madame Patiño's bathroom, Horst P.
