A tad more…

Loved this laser cut metal, illuminated side table with moveable magnetic butterflies.  Can you imagine these on a roof top bar... a balmy night, catching up with friends for an Aperol spritz whilst overlooking a fabulous city ... (oh, that's right, that was Florence... sigh). Spotted in TAD, Rome.

Got a tad excited by this

As a general rule retailers always want big shop fronts. In Europe this is might not be an option. Over the past few days in Rome I have walked though many a small door expecting to find a small shop, instead what hides inside is often a big surprise; a huge treasure chest of goodies on show in various rooms over various levels.  TAD is one such trove of designer fashion, shoes, accessories, homewares, furniture, perfumes and body products and an exhibition by a local artist (also for sale). A gorgeous cafe, stunning little florist and hair salon are also in the mix. TAD is a one-stop emporium of carefully selected labels by the owners who travel the world in search of unique pieces. My thanks to the absolutely charming staff who gave me a tour and allowed these photos when I dropped in unannounced. You can find TAD at Via del Babuino, 155a, Rome.
