Beautiful Paper

To start the evening today, I will have a chilled Bellini at Harry’s Bar, an all-time classic.
The chic art crowd at Monsieur Pinault’s opening party.
Dinner aboard Angela Missoni’s yacht.
Beautiful treasures at Attilio Codognato’s jewellery store on San Marco, Venice.
My room at the Hotel des Bains, the most beautiful room in the hotel with views of the garden and the seaside along the Lido di Venezia.
We will have dinner tonight at Trattoria Alla Madonna, San Polo, Rialto 594, Venezia. I suggest you order the spaghetti with black octopus sauce.

"The world of luxury is ambiguous for me; what counts is allure and charm." - Attilio Codognato

The opening night of the artist John Wesley at the Prada Foundation. He is one of my favorite artists showing at the Biennale this year.
My favorite restaurant while visiting Venice, Restaurant da Celeste on Pellestrina. You have to take the ferry or water taxi to get there, but you will have the most wonderful sundowner, a perfect location and the best dinner in Venice. Order the chilled house Prosecco which they serve you in carafes.
My bag for the day while walking around many hours to look at art.

Whenever I am in Venice I buy lots of beautiful handmade papers in different colors and patterns. They are unique and make a wonderful gift, or I use them to cover my own favorite books.
