Sting & Trudie Styler

On Saturday night, I had the pleasure of sitting in row 10 for the last night of  the North American leg of Sting's Back to Bass Tour.  The music was great, and antidotes entertaining, the lighting really well done and Sting looked amazing.

One of the things I love about being a designer is the relationships I build with my clients.  I get to know their lifestyle and their families while designing their homes.  No question when you see Sting you know he is leading a clean and healthy life which made me wonder what his home(s) would look like...

These pictures are from Architectural Digest's article on the London Home he shares with his wife Trudie and their children.  I was very excited to learn it was designed by one of my favourite architectural firms Shelton, Mindel & Associates.

I love the way they brought light through the house including the lowest level.  They were able to raise the ceiling from 7' to 9' and add the sky light over the over the table this room to make it bright and welcoming.

These next three are from their Lake House in the English Countryside.  Sting spoke about how the rolling hills of barley inspired him to write Fields of Gold.

These are from Jan 2011 Architectural Digest and focus mainly on the landscaping surrounding their Tuscan home.

I love this shaded garden for dining.

This reminds me of the house my friends and I stayed at in Tuscany last year.
