Even though on this blog I write mostly about food, I’m actually better known as someone who writes about houses. I’ve written six books on homes in Italy and write for magazines like House & Garden, Architectural Digest and World of Interiors. So – you can imagine – I see a lot of houses that I would like to move right into. House envy big time.
But it’s rare that I find a store that has the same attraction. Where I just want to pull up a chair and stay a while. But last week while I was eating my way through Florence, working on my new app Eat Italy, I stumbled upon Il Cuore delle Cose. The Heart of Things. The entire store looked like it was just waiting for a photo shoot to happen.
But the great thing wasn’t that it was styled perfectly (it was ) but that every single object was something I felt I could take right home. The colors, textures and shapes were just oh-so-me.
I’m not going to waste words taking up space, since I literally went camera crazy. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
