An Italian home in its original glory

Posted on Fri, 28 Aug 2015 by KiM

For as long as I can remember I have dreamt about buying a very old home in Europe that is filled with glorious original details and maintaining that while modernizing bits as needed. This home in Italy was pretty much left intact by architecture and design firm Archiplan. Original materials were sealed to maintain their longevity, and some modern touches added to rooms like the kitchen and bathrooms. The result is stunning.

My what a beautiful, large and comfortable home for the humans……but surely that gold fish deserves something more.

A fish is not a slice of lemon or a flower. That living creature deserves much more than a stupid jug. Either the photo stylist or home owners — or both — are clueless about treating living things decently.

Oh yes… I'm so sorry to chime in here on a negative note (because the house is stunning, and this has nothing to do with Desire to Inspire), but that poor fish! It stood out so strongly to me as well as being neglectful. 🙁

ditto on the fish – shame on them

I believe that "Goldie" was having his large and luxurious home tank cleaned at the moment and the jar was his waiting "tank" until his home was all clean and ready for his return.
