FOR DEFINITE, A HOME IS A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD TRULY BE YOURSELF AND IT SHOULD RECKON YOU TO THE UTMOST ALL AT ONCE. NONETHELESS, CITY DWELLERS MOSTLY COMPROMISE WITH THE EXISTING STRUCTURES WHEN IT COMES TO DECORATING THEIR APARTMENTS OR CONDOMINIUMS. THE GURU, CAROLE BOY, SAID YOU DON’T HAVE TO ALWAYS GO WITH THE FLOW AS SHE SHARES HER EXPERIENCES HERE.   “I love redecorating,” affirmed Carole after I asked her what her dream job is like. To my surprise, she said she would rather choose to renovate the existing space because “I like to break the wall!” than to work on a new blank one. With the owned place, she could see the function of the space that is being used by the owner in reality and it’s her passion to enhance it. Of course, prior to every project she took on her shoulders, finding tune with the owner is crucial. “I can’t work if they are not open to my suggestions and ideas,” Carole claimed. Although Carole spent most of her life in Paris and the US, she’s into everything Asian, especially Feng Shui in which she referred to as the central of life and incorporates it heavily in her work. Another factor that she always keeps in mind is the lighting, as she quoted, “Good space with good lighting is awesome. Good space with bad lighting cannot be good. Bad space with good lighting could be good.” The use of material is at the forefront as well when it comes to decorating a place. And for Carole, she prefers natural ones with wood, stone and fabric as her main substances to play around. “There should not be more than three materials being used in one place. One has to keep that in mind,” Carole added. Her passion for natural materials runs very deep as she recalled, “I used to live in New York and had a gallery which was called Modern Stone Age in Soho area. It specialised specifically in natural stone and did interior design with natural materials. After we came to Thailand in 2004, we opened a business as an interior design and also we selected very fancy Thai furniture by new designers that made lamps and sofas, and accessories, then exported them to NY to sell in our store dubbed ‘Lux Baan’ which means luxury house.” “I love everything I do, including being an opera singer,” said Carole. Apparently, whenever she travels her mind cannot quite set at ease as she always browses through decorating aspects  of the place, while her brain would start tickling how to make it ‘more’ right. “There are many projects that I was involved in and found it very dear to heart. One of my favourite ones is renovating this duplex apartment in Bangkok which appears to be very cubic and filled with antiques, all very precious. What I did was give each piece a space to breathe so they won’t clutter together.” The wind has changed and now Carole is back in Paris with an expectant plan of returning permanently to Thailand,

Celebrated chef and former holder of three Michelin stars hosts an exquisite epicurean evening on the shores of Koh Lanta, as Pimalai continues to enhance its culinary reputation Pimalai Resort & Spa, the luxury resort surrounded by nature on Koh Lanta, has further elevated its culinary reputation by welcoming celebrated French chef Bruno Menard back to the resort for his second annual “Gastronomic Journey”. Hosted on the evening of Sunday 31st March 2019, this exclusive epicurean evening saw Chef Bruno create an extraordinary four-course dinner for guests at Seven Seas Wine Bar and Restaurant, Pimalai’s stunning fine dining destination which overlooks the Andaman Sea. This year’s Gastronomic Journey took place almost exactly a year after Chef Bruno hosted his inaugural culinary event at Pimalai. This will now become an annual occasion, as the luxury resort strives to become a world-renowned gastronomic destination and put the island of Koh Lanta on the global culinary map. A former holder of three Michelin stars and a judge on the Asian edition of MasterChef, Chef Bruno is a culinary genius whose stellar 35-year career has taken him to some of the world’s leading restaurants. He is currently the Food Director at JUNON, the acclaimed French restaurant in Hong Kong, and Executive Chef at Vranken-Pommery Monopole, which owns a collection of vineyards, including many in the Champagne region of France. “Thailand’s food culture has been famous for many years, but we are now seeing the country’s culinary influence spreading across the globe. Many of the world’s leading chefs are now being attracted to Thailand’s shores, and Bruno Menard certainly fits into that category - he is one of the few chefs to have achieved three Michelin stars, the holy grail of fine dining. We were delighted to welcome Chef Bruno back to Pimalai and our guests were dazzled by his cuisine. This is another important step in establishing our resort as an exceptional gastronomic destination,” said Franck de Lestapis, Pimalai’s long-serving general manager. Chef Bruno’s refined four-course menu at Pimalai focused on light, vibrant flavours, with dishes that blended exquisite French cooking techniques with Asian influences. To ensure a deep connection with Koh Lanta, many ingredients were sourced from the resort’s own herb garden. The evening commenced with an amuse-bouche of borscht emulsion with marinated mushroom, followed by an appetiser of confit salmon with caviar, asparagus and Chantilly sauce. The main course showcased lightly poached turbot with white wine and extra virgin olive oil emulsion, ikura and condiments, before the menu concluded with a dessert of textured red fruit with espuma de crème Catalane. Pimalai’s second annual Gastronomic Journey was attended by in-house guests and outside diners, plus local and international media from Thailand, Hong Kong, UAE and Singapore. Publications represented at the event included the Bangkok Post, Robb Report Thailand, World Travel Magazine, Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, South China Morning Post, and Destinations of the World. Guests were also treated to an exclusive itinerary at Pimalai, including sunset cocktails, a wildlife tour to a mangrove forest, a sunset cruise to Koh Haa,

Cardi B swept by in a stunning red quilted dress accentuated with a matching sequin headpiece, feathers and a train that took up much of the pink carpet, Jared Leto was accompanied by his own (fake) head and Katy Perry came as a candled chandelier at the crazy, campy Met Gala on Monday night. Lady Gaga used the pink carpet as a runway and a changing station — earning giggles and claps from Anna Wintour — and Tiffany Haddish brought fried chicken in a plastic bag as many of the A-list guests worked the camp theme to the max. That included Zendaya, whose Cinderella dress went aglow with the wave of a magic wand. She dropped one of her see-through slippers on the way up for the cocktail hour. Also princessy, of the saucy variety: Nicki Minaj in a short pink Prabal Gurung dress with yards and yards to her train, the last star to walk the carpet. Perry, whose look was created by Jeremy Scott for Moschino, said she wanted to be “of the light,” though she appeared concerned her heavy looking headpiece would topple as she smiled and walked precariously up the stairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, designer Diane von Furstenberg briefly in her orbit as Lady Liberty. Perry, Bella Hadid dished, “had to be trucked here in a UPS truck.” (She changed from chandelier to a fully loaded burger for dinner). Lupita Nyong’o spent four hours getting ready in a multicolored, cool chick witch-like getup, her hair high and packed with golden Afro picks. Leto wore a red caftan with jewel loops, cradling his long-haired macabre version of himself, and Tracee Ellis Ross posed inside a gold picture frame attached to the front of her black dress. She noted it’s detachable for the dinner hour, thank goodness. Regina King, in a copper sequin gown with a large shoulder embellishment, said she wasn’t ready to go full camp, so she stuck to high lacquered hair. “So, glamour is camp,” the Oscar-winner said. “Maybe next year the comfort level will have expanded.” The 71st annual gala hit a high point early with Lady Gaga working the pink carpet to its fullest in long golden eyelashes and a huge fuchsia dress, peeling off layer after layer until she was down to a bra, panties and fishnet stockings. Billy Porter went Egyptian-esque sun god in gold wings and a chain head piece by the design duo the Blonds, carried onto the carpet by shirtless men in gold pants as he lay on top of a black throne. “Camp is the art of being extra and I’ve always been extra,” he laughed. “I’m from the theater so it’s easy for me.” Brandon Maxwell, who created Gaga’s reveal, helped her navigate the stairs as she posed with several helpers. Maxwell undressed her further, revealing a black strapless asymmetrical ballgown underneath with a huge side bustle. Then she undressed again to show off a pink dress reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” walking up and down the carpet. But she wasn’t done.
