The c. 1820 aqua blue painted stucco dining room and original chandelier at Schloss Damtschach,

Countess Brigette-Orsini-Rosenberg’s home in Carinthia,  near the Austrian/Italian border…

Sometimes all it takes is one stunning photo for me to choose a magazine off the rack…

This photo in last month’s World of Interiors had sparkle and shimmer, the light

growing across the page from shadows on the left, the chandelier appearing to

scintillate as if deftly executed by an impressionist painter…

The still life on the table could have been imagined on a painter’s easel…

Cropped from original photo…

The blues glowing like an Opaline treasure…

If ever I need inspiration and gorgeous color, as rich as any artist’s palette,

The World of Interiors delivers. With thick, glossy pages saturated with color,

complex and historical interiors, it’s an archival magazine.  So far I

just cherry pick my favorite issues, and hold onto them forever.
