I don’t even know where to begin. This 2-bedroom cottage, owned by interior designer Berkley Vallone, is everything. Built in 1985 on the lush grounds of a Moroccan-inspired 1920s resort hotel, the Scottsdale home started as Berkley’s bachelorette pad and turned into a labor of love for her growing little family (now three). From a carved bust of Marie Antoinette to a bold velvet leopard print covered chair, a show-stopping graphic black and white laundry room (that you cannot miss), to a vintage Louis Vuitton trunk that doubles as a cocktail table with one great story [owners used to label their luggage with their initials so they could be easily identified in a bustling train station; and Berkley says, “I was meant to have it!”], every detail of this surprisingly snug cottage is carefully orchestrated and beautiful.
And though it’s typically my least favorite place, the laundry room in this incredible home might actual be my favorite room of the house. If I had that laundry room, I might actually consider doing laundry. Kidding.
(By the way, Traditional Home has all of the incredible details!)
