One may expect French shoe designer,Christian Louboutin, to reside in an apartment in the heart of Paris or a million dollar mansion in California. For someone whose signature red soles have been spotted on the red carpet on several occasions,it is pretty suprising to find out that his home is in the desert.
Louboutin lives near the banks of the River Nile near Aswan,a city in Egypt.His home is located not too far away from the ancient temple ruins.
As a former craftsman shop, the two storey building has been remodeled and decorated with pieces Louboutin has collected over his numerous trips worldwide. Despite the renovation,the building still maintains an ancient setting. The house features vintage and antique furniture pieces, Moroccan dining tables and rugs and some fabrics from Cameroon. When less busy, Louboutin comes here to work on future projects,rest and practice yoga.

-OH and about my messy bun, I honestly don't do anything special but pull all my braids to the top of my head and secure it with a hairtie. Then i put a scarf on.

Wonderful post as always Roseanne!!
