“Sleeping Blonde”, oil on canvas, by Nick Alm.

I visited Nick in his studio at Lidingö outside Stockholm. It was absolutely fantastic, his work is more than captivating, it is just mesmerizing. I bought a lithograph, “Café Scene”, which I just want to be a part of, in the middle of the Parisian vibe, drink coffee, champagne or both. Another fav work by him is “Champagne breakfast”. See more of his work here.

In 1968, Carlo Scarpa was invited by his close friends, Laura and Gianni Tabarelli, to the slopes of the vineyard village of Cornaiano near Bolzano, Italy. The couple, who were regular patrons in the circles of the Italian design elite, founded their furniture showroom through which they sold Gianni’s pieces. At this point in time, Scarpa had already established a name for himself within the world of architecture, and having built up a strong relationship over the years, they asked him to design a house for their family alongside his longtime collaborator, Sergio Los. The result is a work that has been rarely seen with timeless furnishings and works of art.
