A client of mine recently reviewed her furniture selections for a living room, dining room, and foyer project. She stopped on the picture of a handmade wooden console from Denmark and was stunned by its simple beauty.
“I love it — it looks so European,” she said.
I smiled and said between laughs, “I’m European; I can’t shake it off.”
As a young adult, I ventured out from my hometown of Budapest, Hungary, to see the world. I traveled across Europe, Brazil, South Africa, Thailand, and Italy. I should say, I lived in Italy; it feels like home. In fact, my husband, our two boys, and I were all born in different countries (Hungary, South Africa, the United States, and Italy).
