Millionaire Tastes


This is the extraordinary flower arrangement at the villa of Princess Hetti, who married Arndt von Bohm, the sole heir to the Krups steel fortune. She and Arndt were given a palace outside Marrakech which was Party Central during the Sixties and Seventies…Hetti was wont to wander around the garden the morning after her fancy dos, finding the likes of Andy Warhol still lying amid the palm trees. It is a complete confection of Austro-Hungarian oil paintings, Moroccan decor and, er, kitsch (white unicorns, spouting horses on fountains etc). It’s now looked after by a dear housekeeper who brought us mint tea and cakes as Only You played softly in the garden. It can be yours for 3.5 million Euros.
