This week I saw a wonderfully decorated minimalist/well designed/relaxed/patterned out accented house. It was so well done that I was convinced that it was staged- down to the picture perfect gallery wall which I wrongly assumed still had the photos that came in the frame! There were great printed pillows in chevron and ikat, beautifully framed prints throughout, a wonderfull gallery wall. If anyone is looking to move to a great 3 bedroom single family home in the West Chester Borough located a 15 minute walk to downtown- I think this one will go fast!!!!

Welcome to my Ancestral home in Italy… FOR REAL!

Back when I studied abroad in Rome during college, I re-connected with our Italian relatives- also the Brandolinis- who live in the Abruzzo region of Italy. We’ve since met up numerous times, the last being this May when I got to spend 2 weeks hanging out with everyone. Check out my family home in Cellino Attanasio. Our relatives then sold it to buy an earthquake proof home up the hill a little further that allowed them to house their hardware/furniture store above their living space. That’s the matriarch greeting us by her front door, and a photo of us in her her kitchen! Oh what could have been had my relative never emigrated to the US of A…….
