Melding elements of architecture, cuisine, design, art and performance, the 4th Annual Venice Design Series kicks off April 28 with the Venice Dinner Party with chef Josiah Citrin of Melisse & Charcoal. Nancy Griffin and architect Steven Ehrlich host the dinner at their home. The following day, the Magical Malibu Tour takes in the famous Malibu Wing House designed by architect David Hertz, built from a decommissioned Boeing 747 airliner. On May 5, the Venice Architectural Tour allows participants to get an inside view of a selection of historic, cutting-edge contemporary homes in Venice, with lunch prepared by chef Todd Barrie at the century-old black Craftsman home of Laura and Jim Maslon, overlooking the Marina Channel.

The Gems of Pacific Palisades & Rustic Canyon tour takes place May 12. The expedition is led by landscape designer and event founder Jay Griffith, followed by a luncheon at a compound in Rustic Canyon. On May 19, the Downtown Los Angeles Artists’ Studio Tour takes participants into the studios of a selection of artists, led by art collector Cecilia Dan. Finally, May 19, the Hancock Park Art Tour & Dinner Party unfolds with a private tour of the Marciano Art Foundation, a former Masonic Lodge now the home to the Marciano Brothers’ vast collection of Hollywood memorabilia. The dinner party will be held at a Palm Beach-style mansion, hosted by Griffith and architect Kulapat Yantrasast.

InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel Review

The best 5-star hotels wholly personify their location, transforming a vacation into a fully immersive experience. This can be said about many of the ultra-chic, small-scale boutique luxury hotels in Paris built into gorgeous, architecturally significant former homes or apartment buildings. While these fashionable gems embody the fantasy Paris sojourn, InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hotel & Spa can as well, even as it houses 458 suites and rooms. It’s worth noting there are also marked advantages to its size (as a stellar spot for destination weddings and business conferences) and central location in the 9th arrondissment.
