Regularly Cleaned

My friend Scott Horne has the most refined taste of anyone I know. I would describe him as picky, but not snobby (this is true of most good stylists I know). I’ve fantasized about having a super curated online store and hiring him to be the Creative Director/buyer for it, but when I drunkenly pitched it to him 5 years ago he quickly said “oh, hell no”, which I thought was a hilarious reaction to a job offer (and took no offense).

So wisely we didn’t venture into that together. Instead, I shot his new house for my book, almost 4 years ago now (NUTS!) and while it’s all over the book, with captions on what he did that we love, etc, I wanted to put …

“Will that cause problems with trapping moisture under that?” he asks.

Having existing carpet there will be a pretty

I give you this long-sorted history of the many things Ibiza represents for me because my experience at the beach caves somehow mirrors my own Ibizan experience. That a hotel stay can also be many things—yes, you can have exceptional spa treatments and delicious food and services that tap into all of your senses BUT we are on an island known for nightlife so YES you can go a few levels down to immerse yourself in ALL the eclectic things Ibiza has to offer. Sure it’s a hotel but it’s also a nightclub with cultural programming, a state-of-the-art recording studio, and an incredible plant-led local menu to feast on as you listen to live shamanic house. It’s truly a celebration of all things Ibiza—sophisticated, eclectic, and fun, with passion, entertainment, and community at its core.

This trip and this property reminded me of all of the things that make me
