Second Shout Out

Second Shout Out took a trip to Lake Como to a small little village called Sala Comacina between Como and Menaggio, in front of Isola Comacina, in a lovely inlet called “Zoca de l’Oli”  for the calm waters that separate the shore of the Island and Sala Comacina and for the such mild weather that allows olive trees to grow here. Sala is also possible to find ancient patrician villas, the most famous is ‘Villa Rachele’, built between the 700 and 800, which also housed Alessandro Manzoni.

Thes best part about Sala Comacina is the church bells, twice a day the bells played Ode To Joy by Beethoven, it so beautiful. Here's a few photos to take you on this Journey.

Ciao Italia

Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Pops of Pumpkin

The color PUMPKIN is a warm balance. It’s neutral, yet not boring or safe in a design sense. I like adding it this time of year with vintage accents. From fashion to furnishings and accessories in between, let’s peak at Pumpkin this Autumn as a neutral.

I hope your planning a beautiful Autumn weekend.
 
My design tip: Adding pops of a color is simple way to update a space. Easily can be changed every season if you like.

I have always dreamed of creating useful work for an important objective. I felt that profit for profit’s sake was not enough, and that there had to be a higher collective purpose
