Caseperlatesta Congratulations!

I have to apologize but this blog was in Italian or Spanish (I think) and the English translation button wasn't working - so I had to use my high school & College French from decades ago to try to translate myself (please forgive me if some details are a little off).

This blog "Caseperlatesta" is all about creating an oasis in our homes.  It is written by 2 sisters who love architecture and that love shows in the decorating ideas that they share with us on their blog.  They also love to visit the sea and love to eat Nutella (that word was an easy translation - hahaha).  Please visit their creative blog!
