Celebrity homes: Gela Nash-Taylor

Heard of Juicy Couture? Yeah. Anyone who can make the concept of a tracksuit glamorous deserves to live here. Gela Nash-Taylor, you have my blessing. Read the accompanying (September 2009) US Vogue article.

"John and Gela with their horses, Sid and Etiquette."

"The courtyard, with its exterior view of the Jacobean drawing room."

"Left: The drawing room, with its magnificent Jacobean plasterwork and chimneypiece, Queen Anne chairs from a suite commissioned for the duke of Leeds, and a Chippendale sofa with its original embroidery, forms part of Robert Kime and Patrick Kinmonth's scheme. The curtains are in Robert Kime for Chelsea Textiles "Hardwick" embroidered cloth. Right: In Gela's daughter, Zoe's, bedroom, antique fabric at the windows, antique toile on a Victorian slipper chair, and an 18th-century mirror on the mantel."

  "In the Chinoiserie Suite, de Gournay wallpaper and a Victorian four-poster bed with custom hangings."

"John Taylor assists wife Gela with her cricket swing while her son, Travis Nash, and Yasmin Le Bon, wife of Duran Duran front man Simon Le Bon, help to field."

"Left: In Gela's bathroom, a Venetian mirror and curtains made from the queen of Italy's court train. Right: Flowers by Robert Kime."

"Left: An 18th-century needlework sofa against a 17th-century French bargello work in the Medieval Suite. Right: A 19th-century Sicilian chandelier and a harlequin set of Régence bergères in the loggia."

"Left: By the early-16th-century gatehouse, an ancient yew tree clipped to the shape of a peacock, and its inspiration. Right: A peacock in an acacia tree above the croquet lawn."

  1. I usually do not drop a comment, but after browsing through a
    bunch of responses on "Celebrity homes: Gela Nash-Taylor".

    I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it only me or do a few of the comments come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I'd like to
