"Objects may appear closer in the rear view mirror" if you look closely you will see this saying sandblasted on all our cars side mirrors. As in life Thomas and I have had, and continue to have, amazing life experiences which not only influence our design but enrich our lives and give us too many stories to tell during our Tavolo Dinner Series dinner parties.
Thomas and I were invited to Los Angles by the gentleman who had just sold Payless Shoes retail footwear chain who now turned into a real estate developer and had bought Liz Talyor's home and several pieces of land around it to build mega homes.
Since we are big Liz Taylor fans we were taken on a house tour by the guys who had turned her study into their office and used her dining table as a conference room! As you can see in the bathroom selfie I took (look closely) we were amazed at the signature lavender color carpets ( her eyes were a shade lavender) and the ornate details yet casualty of excess we were surrounded by! I even took a picture of my foot under the conference table and sent it to my mom during the meeting and said:" look mom my feet on Liz Taylors carpet".
Thank god for coming across old pics in my phone! I invite you to surf, wonder and dream of legends gone never to return...
