Screen Shot 2015-01-19 at 10.00.41 AMI stopped in my tracks when I saw this portrait of Charlotte Stockdale and Marc Newson on my Instagram feed, as highlighted by WSJ Magazine. Between the photograph of the insanely creative duo and the chic rattan garden furniture, I knew this had to be good material.

Charlotte Stockdale, is just half of the impossibly cool couple - a model and stylist (she consults for Karl Lagerfeld), style editor for Jo Malone London and is the fashion director of art magazine Garage. On her right hand is her Australian hubby, Marc Newson. Heard of a little thing called the Apple Watch? Well, he is the gent behind the product's design, not to mention his design of this sumptuous bottle of Dom, the interior design of Qantas' First Class Lounge in Sydney, this body jet pack and many, many other insanely epic products. They are a force to be known.

In addition to their influential contributions to modern society, they have bestowed us with a glimpse into their custom home sitting pretty in Greece's Ionian islands. Outside of this tech enabled, art saturated revolving reality of theirs, they retreat to a stone abode surrounded by radicchio and okra that grow in concert with blossoming orchards and night-blooming jasmine. It's a paradise I truly lust for. Read and see more, here.
