Paradise Found!

Thailand, as it turns out, played a major role in the couple’s decision to design their new home around a modernized Asian aesthetic that coupled Old-World touches with modern-day amenities. The inspiration: The Jim Thompson House, the historic home of James H.W. Thompson, a self-made American entrepreneur who was also founder of The Thai Silk Company. “We had been to Thailand many times and fell in love with everything there,” says Salisbury. “We were enchanted with the architecture. . . . Each of the villas [on Thompson’s property] has teak floors, walls, [and] ceilings. It’s such a beautiful, dense wood. . . . The wood was so soft; it felt like butter. I told my husband, this is how I would like my next house to be.”
