Dr. Vranjes Firenze

I fell in love with the scents of Dr. Vranjes diffusers while we were in Florence staying at Il Salviatino.
So I was thrilled when I saw Dr. Vranjes diffusers on a recent trip to the Scandia Home store in Beverly Hills.

Dr. Vranjes is a chemist and artisan perfumer.  He has developed a range of products in his Florence based laboratory using techniques handed down from generation to generation.

Inspired by the scents of the Mediterranean, he has blended together pure natural ingredients with the world’s finest essential oils to create beautiful fragrances

The scent we have is Magnolia-Orchidea..the website description is...The sophistication of the Magnolia combines with the elegance of the Orchid to relax and balance the mood while enriching the air with purifying components.

Travel Tuesday - Post Ranch Inn

The Post Ranch Inn is the perfect romantic hotel to feature on a Valentine's Day, Travel Tuesday!

I have never stayed at the Post Ranch Inn but on our way home from Carmel, we stopped in for a drink and some food and fell in love with the resort!  The Post Ranch Inn is perched on 100 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, CA.  The view is breathtaking!

The restaurant is right over the water and the view goes on forever.  The Post Ranch Inn is unlike any other place that I have ever been, it is such a special hideaway.  As we sipped wine and ate delicious food, we both agreed that we will have to come back sometime and stay the night!

Mercato di Vetro in West Hollywood

Mercato di Vetro is the newest restaurant in the SBE Group.  Mercato di Vetro was inspired by Italian markets which is evident as soon as you walk in the door.

I love the shelves full of Italian products by the front entrance.  There are plenty of details to take in as you walk in the door...the tiled floor, red stairway, the wood paneled wall with sconces..gorg!

The downstairs bar

Upstairs bar

Upstairs dining area

Private dining room

Cheese plate...yum!

The cheese plate, hanger steak and kale crostini(ricotta, pine nuts and currants...sooo good) were among the standouts.  Its definitely worth the trip to check it out!

Currently Obsessed

 I am currently obsessed with this bedroom!

I love this bedroom designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber that was featured in Architectural Digest. I love the neutrals with bits of brown...I think that the brown gives the room a little more depth.

I am also obsessed with the wall covering and curtains!

I think the fabric is Chapelle by Vervain.  It looks taupe in the bedroom and gray in the bathroom.  I think it must be more of a Gray but I like how it looks a little more taupe in the bedroom.  I need to see it in person...I can't get it out of my head!
