Are you Italian?

I get that question alot because I have really dark hair, olive skin, and brown eyes.  No, people I'm scandinavian/welsh.  But, usually my answer is, "I wish!"  You know why?....I'll tell you. Because Italians do it right.  Whether its food, style, furniture, architecture, you name it, it's just right!  I think because I'm so often asked if I'm Italian, I have a small obsession with them (Along with France, chocolate, exercising, clothes, and interior design, to name a few).  Savio Firmino is an Italian designer that uses  ornate pieces and glorious mirrors! 

Did I not say glorious mirrors!  I'm telling you, I CANNOT get enough of these.  Oh and the chandeliers are striking. 

I definitely respect his ability to balance the feminine and the masculine parts of his design.  It's all so elegant but, functional as well.

A few more Italian delights other than Firmino:

Oooh, I love these spaces!!! Thanks for sharing them! I totally agree with you, Italians do it right (funny cause I've been asked if I am Italian before as well - I'm Egyptian)! I just posted photos from a lovely Italian furniture company today, the comapny is called B&B Italia. I swoon!!

I get the comment "You must be Irish" A LOT ... it's the red hair. They are usually surprised when I respond saying that I am German & British.

OK, so that first image you have (the white bedroom with the chandelier), makes me what to redo my room.
