Baldi proudly presents a truly unique item, a one-of-a-kind masterpiece: a Rose Quartz crystal bathtub.
Priced at 1 million Euros, the astonishing bath was carved out of a single block of Rose Quartz Crystal found in the Amazonian rainforest, weighting approx. 10,000 kg.
The Baldi’s creative director, Luca Bojola, decided to keep the outer part rough not to hide the natural beauty of the crystal. Comparable to Renaissance creations, Its a work of art which testifies the beauty of nature meeting design.
Made in Firenze, 1867.

Bound to beauty in all of its infinite forms, this 17th Century statue standing in the garden of a villa; solitary, lost in the trees, cypresses, and pines makes me long for a secret affair. -tM
An Italian Baroque Palace turned elegant hotel in which the architects and design team honoured the existing structure of the space. I am enchanted by its beauty and elegance. Sensual and simple marries tradition and discretion. -tM

The Italians have a definite flair for fashion. I love how playful yet always elegant their approach to fashion can be. My favourite by far is the gentleman with the suit and the crochet shall, what a fantastic combination. Bravissimo! -tM
I am appreciative of the attention to detail in this Italian restaurant. Merging the old world with the new, from the flag poles that fly the local news, to the booths, that with a simple mechanical turn of the table can go from an intimate seating for one to friendship for two. Function, form, and beautiful design. Once lost, now found, simplicity is here to stay. -tM

The Il Sereno hotel in Lake Como, Italy was designed by Patricia Urquiola and opened in 2016.
The palatial estate, the the beauty of its design, both interior and exterior are what dreams are made of. Its inspiration rests on the infinite beauty of the landscape and is evocative of romance and sexy Italian summers.
I am hopeful of one day returning to Lake Como, and when I do, I will make it a priority to sojourn here. If only for a night or two. -tM
May we all be inspired to create today. -tM
Different, cuts, colours, patterns, and heights of waist lines are simply beautiful and extraordinary, as seen on these Italian men. How could one not be inspired by such thought, beauty, and style. -tM
Roads taken and not taken, routes that diverge or conclude; the key to any path you choose is to remain true to oneself. If you can do that, then the journey will always remain authentic, and will carry you to exactly where you need to be. -tM
