Timeless Cool.... Elsa Peretti

"Style is to be simple" says one of my favorite designer Elsa Peretti...... Her naturalistic approach to design can be seen in timeless and very cool pieces of jewelry and designs for the home.  Aside from all the amazing pieces of jewelry, that I adore...I am totally in love her sterling flatware pattern Padova, which is named after the Italian village where it was manufactured.  I have owned it for more than 20 years and still love using it daily. It has become even more beautiful with age and use.  I was told that this is flatware she uses in her home in Tuscany where it was hung on pegs on the wall in her kitchen.  It hangs on a wooden rack in my kitchen which makes me dream of being in a Tuscan kitchen cooking away!

 If you share in my fascination check out her official blog.....
