V Trends: Architectural Flights Of Fancy With “Million Dollar Rooms” and “Four Houses”

This summer, homes that reflect architectural flights of fancy are top of the mind. There are two new home shows this month that exemplify this trend, doing more than just putting spectacular homes on display.

Vendor on Vedere, Interior designer, Gail Green has designed elegant, high-end space for a wide variety of clients and many times with specific requests. “As an interior designer, I’m oftentimes asked to create environments that are conducive to a “good night’s rest,” she reveals in a newsletter to fans.

The show “Million Dollar Rooms” (Tue., 8:30 p.m. ET on HGTV) gives viewers a look inside the most spectacular, one-of-a-kind, seven-figure spaces, like one man’s 19,000 square-foot private library that’s home to approximately 100,000 volumes including a rare first edition of the King James Bible.

The show starring Carter Oosterhouse features the best in lavish living, including a home with a full-size train and one with a two-story custom closet worth $5 million.

“Like the bespoke suit that seems perfectly poised upon the body, well-composed plans achieve the same effect: they feel natural, as though they have always existed in time, with a sense of history preserved,” says Green in her blog.
