Steve and I are working on a very exciting new project. Our client's dream house is a modern Italian villa. At this beginning stage we are now in the process of filling our heads with as much visual inspiration as possible. During our search for images, Steve stubbled upon a gorgeous website called ItalianVillas.com. I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the images that we are obsessing over...
Arrighi was one of the first villas we fell in love with.
A winding gravel road surrounded by an Italian garden takes you to Arrighi.
Will you join me on this patio shaded under the vine covered arbor?

Come with me for a short visit to the gorgeous Villa San Paolo...
What a spectacular place to end your day by a fire.

I spent hours finding inspiration on ItalianVillas.com, including...
This gorgeous pool house at Villa Capri...
and fantastic arched trellises nestled in the hillside by the pool at Casali Di Monticchio!
I'd love to hear what you think of these beautiful homes. Do you find them as inspiring as I do?
