dreaming of a home in Rome - part I

Do you agree with me that there needs to be joy in life? Real joy, the kind that makes you smile just thinking about it? Travelling is one of those joys for me. Experiencing new things, tasting new tastes, seeing new views. The very best way to travel and learn is of course to visit friends who live in faraway places. The second best - to rent an apartment or villa.

I would love to get an apartment in a city in Italy - to be able to visit a few times a year and just - be. Would be a perfect get-a-way with friends, perhaps even staying a few days just on my own. Wandering the streets, eating delicious food is small family restaurants, enjoying a glass of nice red wine in a corner cafe. Forgetting we were going somewhere, and staying there to read a book for hours. Or just watch the people walking by and making up stories of their lives. Visiting local market places during the weekend - a true treat! Not too many more enjoyable things to do in foreign cities.

What would the dream apartment look like? The N.Y. Soho apartment we decorated in rustic loft style - Italy, for sure, rustic romance. Right? Here you don't sit sipping cosmopolitans and eating sushi, here you have that glass of red wine together with country bread and running gorgonzola!

I've gathered a collage below for the entrance hall in this style. Let's see what my mind comes up with in the next couple of posts.
