The joy of winter

It is cold outside!
Do you like cocooning?

Sunday 8:00 AM
In the morning the bathroom will greet you with warmth created by this central multitasking element: a mirror, a divider but also… a heater…designed by Patricia Urquiola for Axor.

Loro Piana
A walk in the park well dressed in Loro Piana jacket and accessories.

3:00 PM
A fireplace, soft rugs, a cozy chair, several books to entertain you, let it snow!

Nothing can replace a real flame, it will keep you busy arranging the logs and entertained with crackling sounds and dancing flames. 

Loro Piana
Throw Lake Placid in cashmere with  suède finishing, by Loro Piana to feel the warmth
when sitting on the sofa.

5:00 PM

A cup of hot tea? Serve it with this tea set by Alessi, designed in 1935 and recently produced again, made of stainless steel and black Bakelite.

Here I am, snuggled up in my fleece pajamas (by Nordstrom's) robed in a classic kimono custom made by a Korean artisan from fabric personally selected in the old town of Honolulu, in front of a fireplace lit by an unnamed lover, with my iPad (by Apple) lit before me and a dog sitting by my feet. Not any dog, of course, but Geronimo (by Albarosa). Let it rain.

Albarosa, You know how to make the best of Winter! I like the way you think. Also, that's a very cool story about your friend designing the Queen's silhouette for coins. Thanks for the sweet comment - you're terrific! xx

Please keep checking back..............If you have any interest in doing "projects" please let me know.........distance is not a problem.
Thanks so much for the comment on my blog today, it's much appreciated.
