Honoré de Balzac once said, “Passion is universal humanity. Without it, religion, history, romance and art would be useless.” For a collector, passion is equally necessary; it is his raison d’etre, whether he is motivated by investment, enjoyment, cultural enrichment, preservation of the past or the simple love of the quest. For the month of September, Coldwell Banker Previews International® examines this raison d’etre in its luxury blog, Previews Inside Out.
The September issue appeals to all kinds of collectors—whether their passion is for art, antiques, furniture, wine or fine real estate. Wine aficionados will appreciate a tour of Quixote Winery, the unique 42-acre wine-producing property in Napa Valley’s Stags Leap district appellation (timed perfectly with California Wine Month). Real estate lovers will enjoy the Q&A with Michael Bruno, founder of 1stdibs, as he shares his secrets for acquiring and restoring historic homes. Antique and rare furniture collectors will find inspiration in the interview with Christophe Choo, a Previews® luxury specialist in Beverly Hills, world traveler and lifetime antiques collector. And for those who simply want to know how to secure and manage the data on the most treasured items in their lives? There is always the Q&A with Scott Walchek, founder and CEO of Trōv.
