I’ve always wanted to empty rooms.

"I’ve always wanted to empty rooms."
(Andrée Putman)
Because, in order to create, sometimes we need to make space.

L’ambassadrice du style was fifteen when, in 1940 Paris, emptied her room: away with everything, with fabrics and richness and heavy décor. Only a bed, a Mies van der Rohe chair and a Noguchi lamp. And space for creativity. That’s what I want to remember about her, now that she just died – not the black and white bathroom of the Morgans Hotel in NYC, or the many chic stores in Paris. I want to remember that, in order to create, sometimes you have to make space.

Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!

I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
