La Dolce Vita: Insider’s guide to Sardinia

0_michelle-blog-1

For almost two decades, Michelle Stein and her italian husband have shared a second home in Porto Rotondo on sardinia’s Costa Smeralda. click below for her tip sheet to some of the island’s more off–the-beaten-track villages and restaurants.

“There is just so much to see in experience in Sardegna, this is just a small peek into the beauty of the region.”

—Michelle Stein

Alghero is a wonderful city located on the west coast of the island. It was conquered by the Spanish Catalan and vestiges of this culture remain. Many of the older inhabitants still speak Catalan, and one of the region’s classic dishes is paella with fregola, the traditional, couscous-like Sardinian pasta. A favorite restaurant here is Al Tuguri. Villa Las Tronas is a spectacular hotel—set on a promontory overlooking the gulf and a short walk from the city’s center. Right outside of Alghero is Hotel El Faro, a seaside resort and spa built in the 1950s by Sardinian architect Antonio Simon Mossa and surrounded on three sides by the 12,000-acre nature reserve Porto Conte.

San Pantaleo is a charming village in the northeastern part of the island, near the Costa Smeralda. Once inhabited by expatriate artists, the village is a gathering spot for many visitors to the CS, particularly on market days. Petra Segreta is a lovely resort nearby, with individual stone guest cottages and a wellness center set in granite grotto. We also love La Sasima, an agriturismo or family farm that accepts a small number of guests. The restaurant offers roasted suckling pig and other traditional Sardinian fare), as well as local wine and farm-made cheeses, salami, and honey.

Cabras is an 11th-century village in the province of Oristano. There’s a wonderful trattoria there, Sa Bel E Crabasa. And don’t miss Museo Civico Giovanni Marongiu, a fascinating archeological museum with the extraordinary ancient sandstone sculptures known as the Giganti di Mont’e Prama, and the ruins from the prehistoric Phoenician settlement of Tharros.

The granite mountains and rock formations in the interior of Sardinia are spectacular. I love to spend the weekend at Hotel Su Gologone in Oliena, hiking and visiting the nearby towns. Sorgente di Su Gologone is an incredible natural spring located in the valley of Su Gologone. We also visit Dorgali, with its incredible Nuragic civilization stone monuments, and drive down the mountain to the seaside village of Cala Gonone, where we rent a gommone, a small rubber boat, and visit the coastline. Cala Luna is one of the most spectacular beaches in the world. You can also trek from Cala Gonone to Cala Luna.

La Dolce Vita: Insider’s guide to Florence

0_nick-blog-1

For almost 30 years, Nick Wooster has traveled to Florence each January and June for the international menswear fair, Pitti Uomo. Here’s where the Forty Five Ten Men’s Creative Director and street-style icon spends his time when he’s not scouting new talent, working a showroom, or reviewing a runway collection.

Depending on who’s paying, my first choice is J.K. Place Firenze. Of course, Zack Shumway [former Forty Five Ten menswear buyer]  is the one who introduced me to it. They have a location here and in the south of France. It’s the most f***ing chic-est place I’ve ever been. So beautiful and cool and un-Florence like. I literally ate every meal there the rest of the week. For me, that’s the secret to life: Listen to people who are experts. Pay attention.

On the other side is Hotel Santa Maria Novella. It’s like a four-star hotel masquerading as a five-star. It’s the best 300 euro you’re gonna get.

Michelangelo’s David truly is one of the most magnificent pieces of art that you can experience in life—created with nothing more than a hammer and chisel! The scale is just breathtakingly monumental. My favorite souvenirs in all Italy are the little David magnets or statues you find at the souvenir stands.

Another must is the Gucci Museum. It’s amazing. The history is beyond. The highlight is the Gucci Cadillac—a 1970 Seville Gucci-edition. There’s a whole Tom Ford room, and an amazing gift shop where you can buy handbags and books. It’s also a great spot for lunch or tea. It covers everything.

I’ve eaten in some amazing places, but I don’t really pay attention. At the end of the day, my default is room service. My favorite pizza is a place called La Bussola on via Portarossa 58R. I always, always, always order the pizza margherita.

Emily Summers’ Design Tips

6_9_17-blog-es1

A noted collector of art and antiques, interior designer Emily Summers brings that passion to her furnishing and décor selections—many one of a kind—at For Home. The Texas native is nationally recognized for refined interiors that reflect a deep knowledge of contemporary art and architecture. Her Dallas-based firm has consulted on projects ranging from the penthouse of W Victory and a Jackson Hole guest house to the interiors of the Wyly Theatre and Winspear Opera House. Summers has been named to the Architectural Digest AD100 list every year since 2007.

6_9_17-blog-es2Install dimmers on all lighting.  Soft, warm adjustable light lets you enhance the room to make it more inviting.  Try to stay away from bright light, especially overhead light.  The small investment in dimmers is well worth it.

In a bathroom, a pair of sconces flanking the sink at eye level on a mirror is the most flattering and beautiful solution.

6_9_17-blog-es3Our preferred “white” paints, depending on how neutral, warm or cool we need to specify, are Benjamin Moore OC-59 Vanilla Milkshake, OC-45 Swiss Coffee and OC-26, Silver Satin.

Request samples of everything. Organize by room and reference often.

Every chair needs a side table. A place for coffee and our phones.

I see lots of rooms with every piece of furniture up on legs. Some pieces should extend to the floor; they anchor furniture arrangements. Too many legs and the furniture looks like it might all run away.

6_9_17-blog-es5

Create traffic flow drawings before laying out furniture. Don’t create unnecessary corners with rugs or furniture. Invite people into a room by providing a subtle path.

Small cords and trim make a big difference. We often use cord on furniture bases, seams, and cushion detailing. I suggest Samuel & Sons ¼” Cambridge Cord – many color options small sizes.

6_9_17-blog-es6

Take your time. A finely tuned space requires adjustments and sequential decision making. Rushing requires compromises.

It takes longer and costs more to replace a mistake than to wait for the right piece the first time.
