Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who spent half a century putting high society in haute couture, has died. He was 82.

The man, often described as the “sultan of suave” dressed every first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy. Among those whose glamor factor his dresses jazzed up: Oprah Winfrey, Ann Hathaway and, most recently, George Clooney’s bride Amal Alamuddin.

“He was a true, true gentlemen, in the truest sense of the word — a real bright light — and this is just a terrible, terrible loss for the fashion world,” said Alina Cho, fashion journalist and editor at large at Random House.

We would like to honor his life by exploring a bit of himself and his houses.

Here are my favorite rooms from Oscar de la Renta’s Punta Cana beach house. Above, quite a collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain in the living room. It’s a wonderful contrast to the dark wood floors and furniture. Below, the orchid in a Chinoiserie cachepot and the pagoda are lovely touches in this vivid green bedroom. Although not strictly speaking Chinoiserie, I had to show you this staircase with shells on brackets after my post yesterday on Thomas Burak’s pagoda bedroom with the collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain on brackets.

    Like you mentioned, glass fencing is definitely more sophisticated looking and goes well with today’s modern trends. The glass also doesn’t obstruct light from coming into any area. It makes any room look more spacious with its translucent characteristics. Great article on embracing natural light in the home!
