The joy of Spring


California? France? Tuscany?
No…this is a house in the center of Milan, where in Spring the lucky owners can start dining outdoor. What I love here is the simplicity of the wrought iron pergola, the industrial feeling of the building, the choice of greenery and the touch of white flowers in tune with the white canvas on the classic wooden chaises. A few candles create more atmosphere and the table as you can see is set in a very elegant, but still unpretentious way.
I find this image absolutely charming.

Love this beautiful terrace but especially knowing that it is in the middle of the city - the best of both worlds. What lucky homeowners!!

It's beautiful! I'd love to spend an entire evening there with some good friends and good food and good wine. It's perfect.

I love the unexpected sterling, crystal and porcelain in a tent-like setting--perfect counterpoint.
