Christians Louboutin´s egyptian retreat!

19 Jul

                  A while back I read in Elle Décor about Christian Louboutin´s holiday retreat in Egypt. The place made an impression on me. I think it was the undone, unfurnitured feeling the place has. I had this weird craving for wanting to furniture the place, but I think thats the charm. That it´s that undone or minimalistic..

“Once a craftsman’s workshop, the building is made of earthen bricks, employing a technique that has been used in Egypt for thousands of years. Louboutin added an additional floor and a rooftop belvedere with views of the surrounding desert. Construction wasn’t easy: In this area, temperatures can fluctuate rapidly, and building materials are often scarce. “A thousand times I thought I was going out of my mind,” he jokes.”
