When in Vicenza, Italy…

This past August my sister moved from Germany to Vicenza in northern Italy. Always happy for an excuse to escape during winter months, I didn’t think twice when she asked me to come visit over the Thanksgiving holiday to help her get settled into her new home. Her apartment is located in the heart of Vicenza in a beautiful old historic building and it was hard not to be jealous of the space: 2,000 sq feet, three gorgeous marble bathrooms, a kitchen big enough for us to cook together, and a massive light-filled living room with space to host 50 people comfortably.
I think she was worried I wouldn’t leave.


We had a list of things we were searching for to finish up the apartment and the Italian ‘flea’ markets proved a great place to do that. Less ‘flea’ than most markets I’m used to–on the second Sunday of every month antique dealers come from all over Italy come to set up shop in central Vicenza. Amidst ancient Palladian buildings and a mass of locals, stalls upon stalls of old furs, art, furniture, objet, jewelry, and a wealth of other unique items await perusing. Afterwards, it was great fun visit some of the delicious restaurants and wine bars located just off the main piazza for a leisurely lunch and afternoon spritz.

Home to twenty-three Andrea Palladio buildings, this was one of my favorites in Vicenza. I can imagine being very content spending long, leisurely days on this portico.

Saturday Shopping with 1stDibs…

1stDibs is one of my favorite places to source furnishings, art, and objet for clients–so it was great fun to be asked to curate one of their Saturday Shopping sales. With no particular project in mind, no budget to think about, I was free to go through the entire site to select a few of my (many) favorite things. Truly, anything you could ever imagine wanting you can find on 1stDibs. It’s often the first place I start to gather ideas for a new project. Below is a snapshot of some of the things I chose; see the rest here.

Summer Essentials

It’s finally July, and we are headed off to France and to Texas for our summer getaways. As we start to pack our bags, we wanted to share what we’d love to pack and bring along to lounge by the pool in France and to boat around a Texas lake.


A great caftan to throw over wet suits from Two

A sporty, but fun Zimmerman bikini for wake boarding.

A pair of Ray-Bans are a must to protect you from the hot Texas sun.

A great classic stripe towel.

A Sicilian Tote from L-atitude


A vintage Huipil tunic that feels perfectly festive for summer

I live in hats in the summer and love the wide brim on this beauty, though the price tag is the same as a plane ticket!

Turkish towels can also be used as beach blanket and knotted around the neck as a coverup.

This Stella Jean bikini makes me smile just looking at it.

This straw tote is perfect for carrying all my brocante finds!
