allow me to introduce you to a very special lady in my life named paulanna. i have worked for paulanna for many years and in doing so have developed a wonderful relationship. she has a magical boutique in los angeles called pergolina. through my experience working for this fine italian woman i have learned many a trick, including the art of hosting and the power of details. she also has one of the most gorgeous homes i have ever had the pleasure to dine and play in. this last weekend she hosted a lovely soiree. i snuck over before the guests arrived and took a few shots of the lovely set up. i find her mix of textiles and styles to be very inspirational. and check out that lush collection of ferns. pretty stuff.
the secret garden, filled with edibles galore! yummy!
