It’s very hard to know why you’re attracted to something and not something else. Everybody’s taste is just as valid as everybody else’s. It’s just their taste, so you can’t say: that’s in good taste or that’s in bad taste. Or you can say: I like that, I don’t like that.

Why you like it or why you don’t like it, is a mistery.

Step inside one of the most remarkable galleries in Paris.

Housing an extraordinary collection of fine art and antiques, Galerie Kugel – established in 1958 by renowned art dealer, Jacques Kugel – resides within Hôtel Collot, an hôtel particulier on Paris’ Left Bank.

The vast, beautiful building provides a gallery space as unique and photogenic as the museum-worthy collection contained within.

The gallery is still run by the Kugel Family: brothers Nicolas and Alexis Kugel, who represent the fifth generation of a family of art dealers, and Laura Kugel, who represents the sixth generation.

A mesmerising tour through collected beauty at its most refined.

One of England’s most exalted addresses and famously the setting for the film, Brideshead Revisited, Castle Howard is instantly recognisable the world over.

Built at the turn of the 18th century, the Yorkshire castle was designed by titans of English architecture, John Vanbrugh and Nicholas Hawksmoor, and bears all the hallmarks and secrets of their mastery.

It’s a journey into beauty. Everywhere you go, everywhere you look, there’s beauty,” says Nicholas Howard, whose family have lived at Castle Howard for more than 300 years.
