Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. We're in for a spell of rainy and rather oddball weather, so I think it'll be a relaxed and indoorsy kind of weekend for us — which I'm really looking forward to, actually, as I ended up working through most of last weekend! How about you? What are you up to?

The London flat of Sofia and Niccolo Barattieri di San Pietro is designed to not only be beautiful, but easygoing, too — a place where the family can relax and entertain in a casual way. Designer Paolo Moschino, who renovated the couple’s apartment, describes it as the Italian way. “In Italy, you might have a big palazzo, but you serve mozzarella and tomatoes for lunch, and your guests are all laughing and talking. It’s a relaxed approach within the historical grandeur of a room.” I particularly like the nonchalant display of antiques, the natural light throughout — and the great art, too.
