Just released, LPI’s Spring edition of Luxury Portfolio magazine explores biophilia, or the desire to be near nature, and how it relates to home design. The issue also notably features second home market trends, sustainable luxury brands, celebrity homes, and more.
Nature And Home: Biophilia In Design
Biophilia has been steadily trending in home design for years, and it’s only been exasperated with greater time at home and the need for a tranquil and healing space. In our exclusive four-page spread “Nature and Home: Biophilia in Design,” we explore the definition and its incorporations by exceptional designers and architects. The piece offers everything from eco-friendly design tips to a Disappearing Pool (yes!).
The nature theme is found throughout the issue, also showcasing outdoor furnishings, our favorite houseplants, and tips for exterior living.
A Look At Ethical Luxury
In our latest edition of recurring article “Jet Set,” we looked at four ethical luxury brands from around the world, including recognizable names Stella McCartney and Pat McGrath, as well as beautifully crafted sustainable jewelry and clothes made from seaweed.
Additionally, LPI conducted a Q&A with the Chief Sustainability Officer of Tiffany & Co., Anisa Kamadoli Costa, to gain insight into how Tiffany has been influential in promoting ethical practices among luxury brands.
Breaking Tradition: The Second Home Market
Second home markets have shattered expectations in 2020. To gain insight into various markets, we interviewed experts from Brown Harris Stevens – The Hamptons; Chase International; John R. Wood Properties; Turks and Caicos Property; VALLAT; and The Whistler Real Estate Co. Ltd. The article explores how the markets are performing and the most popular amenities within the respective regions.
Every issue, we make a point to showcase celebrity homes. The most recent lineup includes athlete Derek Jeter and popular musical artists, like John Lennon, Katy Perry, and Sonny Bono.
Bonus: Extended Interviews
In the coming weeks, be sure to keep up with our blog. Every week for six weeks, LPI will share extended interviews from the issue. Including designer insight on biophilia, a look at various second home markets, and an extended interview with Tiffany & Co.
