The New Digs

When I transplanted life as I knew it to Italy, I moved into the apartment Giulio has called home for the past six years. Though its great potential struck me immediately (supreme location, high ceilings, big rooms, lots of light), according to my research, the apartment had not been cleaned since the cradle of civilization. And by "not been cleaned" I mean that the photos released of Osama Bin Laden's postmortem bedroom looked strikingly similar to ours. So, I unleashed my tyrannical OCD mania on Giulio and after a period of hysterical crying, trashing, cleaning, and shopping, we finally arrived at an aesthetic state worthy of hosting many a dinner party. Presently, there's even a loaf of homemade rosemary olive bread in the oven.

Pretty, very nicely redone! I agree with my daughter, very romantic bedroom. Just don't get too vigorous there cause that is a big drop if your bed breaks or you roll out! Deb
