Nearly a week has gone by since our return from Italy, and I'm convinced I left a bit of my heart and soul back there. Not only are the historical landmarks magnificent, but the modern day living scenes around them are equally striking. Some of my favorite sights were the balconies, entries and doors that adorned practically each city and town we visited. Whether in an urban area, or remote rural one, botanicals seemed to play a major role in defining how an outdoor space evolves with time. Here are some of favorite images of grand entries, lush balconies and serene, inviting terraces.
Italy, I cannot wait to return, again and again. Ciao!!
