A Look At Summer Romance By Carolyn Englefield

With warm, breezy afternoons and the thought of a great escape in mind, I’ve been daydreaming about where I’d like to be, what I’d like to be doing, and what would I like to take with me. I imagine myself in a small little studio, high up in the hills of Tuscany in a seaside town, like Porto Ercole—a place that perfectly captures the romance of summer. I appreciate a place that feels lived in and has a real sense of soul, complete with well-curated objects, home furnishings, and accessories that may have a specific history or provenance, but whose value is not necessarily determined by price, but rather by its unique qualities and personality. Here are the items that really set that tone. And the best part? All of these are timeless—I’d never get tired of them. Bon vacance! - Carolyn Englefield
