casa talía is a b&b in modica, sicily,
created and run by milanese architects couple
viviana haddad and marco giunta,
and it's all about slow living.
i love all those tiles!
all pics scanned by me from
elle decor italia july-august 2011.
photos by andrea ferrari.
i also found some more pics
and an interview here on dezeen.
click pics for a closer look.
(side note: yes, i'm doing my daily drawing challenges.
i quite liked it yesterday, but the previous three days
they felt more of a drudgery.
i feel totally untalented, of course,
but i'm going to get thru this, i know.
i also decided to break out
that is really a love-and-hate book for me.
it's smart. very smart.
but if you take a look at the cover, you instantly know that
it has nothing whatsoever to do with art.
you know, to be a great artist, you don't
necessarily have to be able to be a good draftsman...
take cézanne or van gogh.
on the other hand, it has everything to do with
seeing... that kind of seeing that is my goal
in this 30-day challenge, so i feel
that i might benefit from reading it and maybe
doing some of her excercises...
of course i never did those excercises before...
i'm lazy, you know...)
