Freelance writer and editor Cosmo is the co-author of Glorious Hotels of India, which is extracted in our Portfolio section. Favourite city? I love the tattered grandeur, swaggering architecture and chaotic spirit of Naples - every moment spent there is an adventure. Mumbai and Rio de Janeiro have similar vibes. Describe your dream home: A rose-pink farmhouse outside Delhi with enfilades of courtyards, arches and bedrooms looking out onto stretching lawns with follies and white peacocks! Favourite design object? With its rattan weave and oversized arms, the colonial planter’s chair is a masterpiece of simple, elegant comfort. They add an atmosphere of languid sundowners and Karen Blixen-style chic wherever they appear.
