The Home of Elio Ferraro

Antique Expert and Gallery Store Owner, Elio Ferraro’s Apartment in Florence is busy, lively and interesting. I particularly love the balcony.

“Interested in discovering different cultures travel was an on-going preoccupation for Elio which led to countless art and fashion discoveries now amassed into an extremely eclectic and impressive personal collection. Beauty is found within the walls of his tranquil home in the historical centre of Florence; somewhat of an island or refuge. Rich colours and individual objects become united, presenting an awe-inspiring integrated environment.”

Missing Summer

Over time I have come to love all season. They all have special charm but for today I am missing that real South African summer feeling and I’ve been thinking about the December summer holidays I used to spend at home, running around in the garden and the hours spent in the swimming pool.

I’m comforted by thoughts of incredibly hot days, dry, silent air, late afternoon rain storms, shorts and dresses, green grass, endless high blue skies, hot bricks around the pool, falling asleep in the sun, warm skin, doggies sleeping in the shade … such wonderful summer memories.

So here are some other beautiful reminders of summer.
