Inside a Pink Waterfront Mansion in Miami That Looks Like a Fairytale Castle

Marrying Millions star Bill Hutchinson has just listed his six-bedroom, seven-bath mansion in Miami’s Coconut Grove for $8.25 million. The mansion really does look like a castle with its soaring, 30-foot ceilings, spacious great hall and unique architectural details, such as Romeo and Juliet-worthy stone terraces and balconies. Maybe it’s no accident that Hutchinson bought it in the first place, as the youngest of his six children is named King.

The home has 65 feet of water frontage and its own private dock as well as a keystone-edged infinity pool overlooking the channel.

Inside, the 12,800-square-foot pink palace seems like both castle and cathedral with its gothic touches, such as carved archways and columned passages, as well as those massive stained glass windows in the great hall and one of the bedrooms. Some of the grand and quirky (for Miami, at least) details include stone fireplaces, antique stained-glass windows,

Listen To This Right Now: The Outfit, TX ‘Icy Whites’

Dallas hip-hop mainstay The Outfit, TX put its latest single, “Icy Whites,” on all streaming platforms last week. We’re here to tell you to give it a listen. The short-but-sweet banger is an ode to one of the world’s most iconic and ubiquitous sneakers, the Air Force 1. More specifically, it’s an anthem to the feeling that comes with wearing a glaringly white, fresh-out-of-the-box, uncreased pair of AF1s. 

“I’m a designer as well. So, from a from a designer standpoint, the Air Force 1 silhouette is a timeless work of art, like, that’s a beautiful silhouette for a shoe,” says Outlaw Mel, one half of the rap duo. “It might be arguably the best silhouette for a shoe, ever. That’s why I think they keep coming back around, and, at this point, I don’t think they’re gonna go anywhere because it’s art.”

After months of collaborating remotely due to the

Finding New Passions During the Pandemic

The closing of theatres forced me to go outside of my comfort zone and learn more about myself.

BWW Blog: Finding New Passions During the Pandemic
High school theatre.
Working as Delores Dante

I truly can’t remember going a single day of my life without singing. Performing has always just been a part of my life. For me, escaping reality and telling a story for others is like breathing. Performing is vital and without it, I’d be completely lost. When I was three, my nanny plunked out the notes to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from the Wizard of Oz on the piano for me and gave me the gift of music, patiently showing me how to use my voice for the very first time. My mom signed me up for dancing classes when I was five because I had boundless energy and continually spun around my house, imitating my idol Julie Andrews. In middle school, I decided to

A1 Peppercorn Pacific 60163 used in Paddington 2 to pass through Bristol

Train enthusiasts will have several opportunities to see an iconic locomotive pass through Bristol later this year.

The A1 Peppercorn Pacific 60163, known as the Tornado, has been repainted green for the first time since 2012 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Trust which operates it.

Following its new paint job, the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust – the registered charity that built, owns and runs the train – is resuming its 2020 touring programme across the UK.

The first chance to see the locomotive, which appeared in 2017 film Paddington 2, in Bristol will be on Saturday, November 14, when it travels from Bristol Temple Meads to Chester.

There will be a second opportunity to see it in all its glory on Tuesday, December 8 when it makes its way from London to Bath and Bristol on ‘The Bath and Bristol Christmas Express’.

Tour Celerie Kemble’s New York City Apartment

“It’s been like this my whole life-I walk into a place and immediately know that my destiny is to live there.”

So it was the first time that Celerie Kemble set foot in the New York apartment she now calls home. The designer had spent the previous few years splitting her time between two apartments; rather than shuttle their kids back and forth, she and her ex-husband took turns staying with them in their family home uptown, and on off weeks, she’d retreat to a pied-à-terre in the West Village. “I wasn’t going to move the kids until I found somewhere I knew they’d love,” Kemble says. “They’re lucky that they’ve grown up in these layered, collected homes—I didn’t want them to see cardboard boxes and drywall.”

After searching hundreds of listings online, she found the one: a three-bedroom rental in Chelsea, with high ceilings, soaring views, and a rooftop

The Londoner: Sheku’s mum: More music in schools can boost diversity

Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason, mother of cellist superstar Sheku, has called for more support for music in schools.

Kadiatu, whose seven children are all talented musicians, said: “We’ve seen budgets shrinking and opportunities disappearing. It was always an academic subject which stimulated creative intelligence but it’s been dumbed down so it’s no longer a viable subject. Children will suffer, so will the industry as it will be even less diverse.” Speaking to Times Radio last night about her book House of Music: Raising the Kanneh-Masons, she spoke about the sector.

“It was very white and it’s getting worse. I think classical musicians would welcome a bigger, more diverse audience, but it’s got to come from the bottom up. If you don’t see diversity, it doesn’t encourage people to go into that industry.”


She added that her

Fall trends: Comforting hues, flexible design – Lifestyle – Times Telegram

In recent years, brown anything in a living space was considered by some arbiters of decor as drab and outdated. But this fall the hue is back in favor, in part because of the unsettled, anxious state of the world.

“Brown traditionally makes people feel comfortable and safe, and those are feelings that many of us are looking to our homes to provide,” says interior designer Dawn Hamilton of Oakland Park, Florida.

It’s just one of the trends in decor this season, when the pandemic has made home an even more essential space for living, working, studying and more. Also on the watch list: flexible rooms, indoor and out.

COZY PALETTE

Hamilton says today’s brown palette is being used in new ways, as a neutral in all kinds of materials, and as an accent color.

“Brown feels very earthy and rich. It’s warm and inviting, and has the same grounding
