So … Super busy days …. again! What’s going on? Well, loads … from my “desire” for a somehwat quieter year, I have now the busiest of all years, ever. And to be honest, I quite like it that way. What else would I be doing? I like a project (or two, or three).
So, that one thing I thought I would never be doing, I am doing it now … creating a brand. At least it is “Vuyani”, not “Koppes”. haha
So, how’s the Villa Vuyani in Antibes coming along? Well, very well, as a matter of fact. It has a lot of my signature showy elements in it (not all things Trumpian are bad, you can also learn from him), but I don’t go as far as using gold-plated. That’s a bit much for me. I always think to myself … people laugh at the exaggerated bodies of a big bodybuilder … but they do look at them!!! Showy cannot be that bad then. And I like it a bit showy. How else can you stand out? And I don’t like the concept of “also ran”, I like No.1. We did it in South Africa, where we are now towering over 95 competitors (driving them before us, and listening to the lamentations of their women ), so I am thinking, why not do it again, and show the Frenchies how a showy bathroom or kitchen is done? At the end of the day, the Saudis and Russians are to be impressed. Bring it on! I know what they like.
Anyhow, I got back last night from Antibes, and I am confident that in 4 weeks all will be done. Air cons are already in (See photos), and the front gate and garage door have now remote controlled openers. Very posh indeed.
While I was away, Louis has learnt to smile, and he’s showing a very curious mind. Amazing. I jsut spent an hour with him, he’s such an easy and calm soul.
I might be off to South Africa in a few days, when do I get a rest? But then again, apart from nannies, noone is getting any rest here. Life in the fast lane, as John said. He got that right.
Here the photos from our Antibes house:
And then loads of kids’ photos:
