If you’ve been fortunate enough to get a peek into a member-only Soho House, you know that the locations are carefully selected, the interiors delectably designed. Much attention is paid to creating spaces that cultivate inspiration and collaboration — a home-away-from-home for its creative-type entrepreneurial members and their guests.

After opening locations in London, New York, LA, Miami, Chicago and Berlin, founder Nick Jones discovered a 1873 palazzo in Istanbul that also housed an American ambassador, embassy and consulate. It is said that Jones scouts out various prospects; but the winners, they have to “feel right.”

With marble from Carrera, rosewood from Piemonte, and hand-painted walls by artisans bygone, it’s not difficult to imagine why Jones felt right about this one. Topped with a rooftop bar and an adjacent glass annex, Soho House Istanbul marries the old and new, European details with an Eastern mystique.

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).
