    I was a little late to post my list. This is my top Five;

    1)Ira’s Compound,
    2)Tranquility,
    3)Flur De Lys,
    4)Mohammed Hadids Mans,
    5)Champ D’or

    …Champ D’or would be higher if it didnt have those tacky red marlble polls in the dinning room, and else where. Mohammeds is my fav interior job thanks to the amazing Morrocan rooms it has 🙂
