Studio Peregalli

On a dreary day like today, I'd love to crawl onto my couch (see above), skip work, make myself a cup of tea and finish my book....if only.  And if only that really was my sitting room.  Instead it's the masterwork of Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli of the Milanese architecture and design firm, Studio Peregalli.  Isn't it just perfection?

The other day I found their book The Invention of the Past in a local bookshop and was instantly spellbound.  It's filled to the brim with photos of their designs, each unique and painfully gorgeous.  Have you seen the book?  Have you known about Studio Peregalli for years?  Have I just been living under a rock?  Their office is near my school, I'm thinking of going in one day during the break, throw myself on their desk and beg for a job.  Ms. Rimini wears her hair in marcelled waves...even more reason to love them!

"Isn't it just perfection?"

YES.

Good luck with the job hunt and tell them that you will become "indispensable" to them. And remember that the key to success is to never listen to your heart when it says no.

I can think of plenty of weather that wouldn't be conducive to enjoying such a space, but yes, on a dreary day I would love that room. Especially with a pet cuddled up on the couch.

Babylon Sisters- You must! I looked at it again yesterday...it's worth the paycheck!

DED- I knew you'd agree... :)

Paul- Thank you for the encouragement and the words of wisdom! What happens if my heart says no when I'm already sprawled on their table?

Thomas- this could be an entry in Shelf Esteem!
