Summers In France is a fabulous read. Along with photos of gorgeous interiors, there are recipes, tips on how to be a gracious hostess and guest, and information about the amazing markets near Ms. Ireland’s summer home in the Tarn-et-Garonne region of Southwestern France. I really appreciated the before and after photos. Ms. Ireland has … Continue reading I Libri: Summers In France by Kathryn M. Ireland

A few weeks ago there was an aperitivi at the store and several of the designers were there.

It’s too cold during the winters (ten years in Los Angeles, has clearly thinned my blood) and too grey. The “rivalry” between Rome and Milan is similar to the one between … Continue reading I Know There Is Beef Between Milano And Roma But…

I will write a separate post about Milan. I cannot wait to return. The Salone (April 17-22) is … Continue reading Buon Viaggio: Salone del Mobile 2012, Milano
