Long story short: “They said ‘Tom Ford,'”

remembers Los Angeles designer Jamie Bush about what the inspiration might be for his clients’ new Tahoe vacation house.

“Tom Ford in the mountains: smoky, dark, sexy, a little moody.

Short story longer: “We like the integrity of Tom Ford’s clothes,

the quality of the fabrics, the cut,

the thoroughness,” says Chamath Palihapitiya,

an Internet entrepreneur and Facebook alum.

“Not just the aesthetic, but the ethic,

the creative discipline inside and out.”

The poker room is furnished with

Saarinen chairs by Knoll upholstered in an Opuzen mohair, a chandelier by Lindsey Adelman,

and sconces by Fuse Lighting; the painting is by Jamie Bush, and the wallcovering is by Élitis.

Palihapitiya adds that he and his wife,

Brigette Lau, who work in Silicon Valley and live there with their three children, didn’t want a tired,

oversize log-cabin cliché but something that reflected the

reality of a modern family that uses iPhones and believes in Teslas. “We wanted a reflection of our taste,

a modern aesthetic that would embrace our inner voice.” ออกแบบบ้าน
