London

One of the things I like the most is taking a peek into other people’s homes, and the London front doors and windows are so rich of details… with just a quick overview from the outside you can play guessing games about what it would look like inside or about the people who lives in there

from the the monothematic to the eclectic

to the trend of color coordination that I spotted in the stylish Portobello area

4 days in london

LITTLELULU_Compo_London_01

Yes: London again! I was so happy the few days I spent there and I also got the luck to catch the last incredibly hot and sunny days of the english summer

I stayed at a wonderfully located friend’s apartment, just above a nice and busy street food market

finally got to eat a proper english breakfast

spent a lot of time looking at the legs of the Greylag gooses of St.James Park… they look amazing!!!! Something in between an alien thing and a slice of ham

wandered around the Victoria Station area, which is quickly changing and now looks like a gigantic construction site

and strolled down the canal from Little Venice to Notting Hill…

carnia corners

LITTLELULU_Compo_Carnia_01

A few corners of some small quiet villages between the mountains of Carnia.

It is not the first time I visit these villages in the summer as I’m in love with their simplicity and vintage feel: you may have already seen a few pictures I posted here and here (actually I just realized I already photographed and posted the picture of the same board here above!)

What I most love about Carnia is its rustic vibe: almost no hotels around in its tiny villages, but I discovered that you can book your staying in a proper local home through the Albergo Diffuso (Scattered Hotel)

This was the house were I spent so many summers as a child.

A few things have changed now, but there are so many corners in this village that are becoming ruins of a bygone era…

And what about snails? I think this must be an incredibly special year for them because on my mountain trip I saw lots of snails everywhere!
