I adore this simple and eclectic Parisian (Neuilly-sur-Seine) apartment I caught myself drooling over when I paid a visit to The Socialite Family. It is the home of Mary Erlingsen and her two young daughters. As a big fan of photography as art, I love her collection and the graphic edge it lends to the spaces. I am hoping this will push me to find a photo I have taken to blow up and hang over my sofa. I have one I think may be perfect... (Photos: Constance Gennari)
Milan-based web designer Franco Scarpino has a bolt hole in San Leonardo di Cutro, Calabria on the Ionian Sea. Here in his 40 sq m attic apartment he can throw open the windows and gaze out to see. But Franco seems to spend most of his time looking inside his flat.On the wall there are works of 15 different Italian artists. You see Franco is part of a home based gallery movement Art in Flat which brings artists and home owners together to exhibit art in one of its most natural habitats, the walls of a house. You could say this post is half reader's home half home exhibition. I think I need to get involved in something like this here in Australia. A very cool idea.
