Trained at Parsons School of Design and New York University, I am an Interior Designer and Interior Design Planner based in New York City and New Jersey. This Interior Design blog was created to bookmark my inspirations...from
architecture, design, history and fashion. Good design is self-expressing. I interpret these rooms through my own perspective. If you see something new and different...something I can’t see...please contact me, as I am always interested in other peoples’ viewpoints.

Can I just say how much I appreciate the magical touch in Woody Allen movies. We went to see To Rome With Love late last night and even though I enjoyed every scene and vision watching the beautiful Italian architectures and ruins, it was probably not the best of the ideas. It just made my yearn for Italy a lot more profound. Whenever we go I need to pay a visit to Palazzo Margherita, owned by Francis Ford Coppola, located in an unconventional town called Bernalda. The Hotel was designed by Jacques Grange, another reason for me to visit it, and it's authentically old school Italian. It's not in a very touristic town. This is a place more in tune for people who want to experience the real Italian small town life, but even if there is not much to do, I would be perfectly content drinking Margarita's by the pool or simply walking around the town and enjoying the beautiful medieval hilltops.
I am convinced that our surroundings influence our beings and if we put in our homes only what we love based on comfort and functionality beauty will reveal itself. After all, having a warm, comfortably functional and beautiful home to come back to at the end of a long and hectic day, is what we all covet. A happy home which should render us with either a sense of comfort or reward at the end of our busy days.
