Hold up, how is it October already? One of my friends in the States was complaining about seeing Thanksgiving decorations already. I guess we should be grateful they weren’t for Valentine’s Day 2016.
I have started my apartment search. It’s, well, a trip. I don’t know what some of these landlords are thinking. The bathroom situation is not good.
I’m having a hard time finding smaller apartments that are unfurnished. Most of the apartments in the neighborhoods I’m focusing on were built for families. I don’t need a huge apartment and as a small business owner, it wouldn’t be financially smart to take on that kind of monthly expense.
I hope to find something this month. We’ll see.
I took a quick business trip to Milan last month. I got completely lost searching for a to-the-trade vintage furniture store. Once i realized I was very close to the new Prada Fondazione, I had to check out Bar Luce.
Bar Luce was designed by film director Wes Anderson. Anderson has directed several short films for the fashion house.
It’s 1950/1960’s Milanese style with a touch of Anderson’s quirkiness. Opened everyday from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., Bar Luce is the prefect spot to have coffee or aperitivi.
There are so many wonderful design details in this space. I really need to return and spend a afternoon there, reading and writing.
ADORE these lights. If I find an apartment with an ingresso/foyer that has overhead lighting, I’d love a fixture like this.
The dark wood helps anchor all the pastels. Without it, perhaps the décor would be too twee. Pink and green are fabulous together. Back in college I used to have a rugby shirt with those colors. One day while walking across the quad, an upperclassman asked me if I were an AKA. She said, “you do wear a lot of pink and green.”
I did. Not because I belonged to that sorority but because I wore a lot of preppy clothes in the 80s.
I didn’t have a chance to see what tunes were on the jukebox.
One of my favorite Wes Anderson films. I must buy the soundtrack.
I wonder what flavor the pink cake is. So pretty.
