Lovely loveliness!

Amazing how different Fendi's apparel design sense seems to be from her decor preferences.

Oh my, it's good to be a Fendi. Really, really good. It's breathtaking. This is one if the best spreads I've seen in forever, Raina, but are you trying to cause my early demise with all that gorgeous tile? Huh, huh?!?

Fabulous!

I enjoyed reading your bio, and had to chuckle. I mentally re-arrange homes to, and have tinkered with store displays. Funny!

Love your blog!

I am loving this place. Actually I love this style for a a little casa di vacanza full stop.
The rustic Italian simplicity with gorgeous local materials blending so well with the setting is yummy. And of course it helps when the Mediterranean is lapping in the background too!

Happy weekend to you my friend.
