La Dolce Villa is an homage to a way of life.  One where there is time to savour the rhythms of living by the seasons, and time to capture the details of a culture and a community.  La Dolce Villa can be a physical place as well as a metaphor for the simple life.  For me, it exists in my home in Coral Gables as well as in Italy.

My desire is to live ‘La Dolce Villa’ surrounding myself with objects that add beauty and texture to life:  family, good friends, aesthetic decor, good food and loved ones to share with. I am traveling to Italy for what I anticipate will be a journey of discovery to seek out vintage objects to re fabricate, retool or reuse for the purpose of enhancing La Dolce Villa.  Let’s see what happens.  Ci vediamo.
