Breaking Bad & Sherlock Sweep the Emmys, Plus More Surprising Moments!

ARTS & CULTURE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

Last night's Emmys saw some surprising losses (two words: True Detective) and some not so surprising wins (we all knew Breaking Bad would get some love after its final season, but who guessed Sherlock would be the biggest winner? Apparently not even the two stars since neither Martin Freeman nor Benedict Cumberbatch were there to accept their awards.). And can we all figure out just who exactly still watches The Big Bang Theory, because Jim Parsons won for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series again for the fourth year in a row—not to say Parsons isn't good (he's certainly the show's saving grace), but he was up against Ricky Gervais for

Buffalo Creek Ranch
HOUSE | by: JUSTLUXE TEAM

Previously offered for $15.5 million, Buffalo Creek Ranch near Lake Tahoe in Nevada seems like the perfect refuge from city life—meaning this needs to be your vacation home. Plus, the ranch was designed to pay homage to the wild west, with a Jack Daniel's-themed train depot, a fully-restored 1923 caboose poker parlor, and a firehouse with its very own 1962 fire truck. Basically, it's an eccentric millionaire's dream.

LEISURE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

Sweden-based company Radinn may have created what could be the next must-have water toy, an electric-powered wakeboard that's controlled by a wireless remote control. The project first started back in 2012 when Radinn founder (and wakeboarder) Philip Werner decided to make one for himself as a site project while studying at Lund University. It apparently went pretty well since last year he created his company, got a team, and started making prototypes.

Fluid Sculptural Staircase Makes This Exotic Mumbai Flat a Must-See

Staircases are often overlooked in homes and end up being uninspiring and dull. After all, just because they all serve the same purpose doesn't mean they all have to look the same. When we first saw this two-story apartment in central Mumbai, India by Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop, we immediately fell in love with the super cool staircase.

Award-Winning Designer Campion Platt Discusses Just What Makes a Home Luxury

Campion Platt, interior designer
HOUSE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

New York-based Campion Platt has done everything, from designing homes and boutique hotels to his own line of custom furniture, but no matter what the project is, Platt always has luxury on his mind. To him, luxury isn't about the flashiest bejeweled furniture accents or the dollar tag on that new Persian rug, it’s about open spaces you can breathe and relax in. It may seem simple enough, but making a Manhattan home into a light and airy space isn't that easy. Platt was kind enough to take some time to chat with us about how he defines luxury, his own personal style, and the craziest client request he's gotten so far.

The limited-edition Radius Ti Titanium case for the iPhone 5/5s is a cool design that doesn't engulf the entire smartphone, instead only attaching to the four corners to create an X frame on the back—someone tell Patrick Stewart.

If you were listening close enough last season during an especially emotional moment on NBC’s Parenthood, you may have heard Allman Brown’s beautifully written song Sons and Daughters playing in the background. For me, it was when vocalist Liz Lawrence joined him on the chorus, filling his melodies with wonderfully placed harmonies, that I knew I had to hear more.

Black Caviar Company Becomes First to Offer Previously Illegal Russian Osetra to the U.S.

Black Russian Caviar
LUXEEPICURE | by: COURTNEY DRIVER

An age-old mark of luxury, caviar has long been a delicacy associated with wealth and royalty. But not all "caviar" is created equal and if you think you have tried the best, you might want to think again. While today there are many different kinds of roe being marketed as caviar, according to the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Life Fauna and Flora (CITES) only one species of fish makes the cut to be officially classified as a host to the coveted condiment, the best and priciest of which comes from Russia. "Real" caviar is harvested from the sturgeon or paddlefish, and based on the quality are classified in four types, with beluga topping the list as the most prized, then osetra, sterlet and sevruga.

After all, the outdoor living space is always what makes the first impression so you better make it a good one.

Need a Gift Idea? How About a Private Dinner in the Tower of London While Surrounded by 12,000 Diamonds?

tower of london
LUXEEPICURE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

Any history fan will know that the Tower of London is a pretty fascinating place,  especially the Martin Tower (or Jewel Tower)—which is just one of the 21 towers found in the building. The tower used to be the home of the Crown Jewels—which Colonel Thomas Blood tried to famously steal in May 1671—and was even used as a prison for a little while, but now holds an exhibition called Crowns and Diamonds. Thanks to TRULY, you can experience a super exclusive, private three-course dinner surrounded by 12,000 diamonds. Aside from the gourmet food, you also get to enjoy a Champagne reception in the Hall of Monarchs, and witness the Ceremony of the Keys where the tower is locked. You can either book the dinner for just two people or for up to 12, but no matter who you take, we're pretty sure it's a dinner you will never forget.
