Trulli Magical

Monday. Monday, and welcome to it, Dear Readers. I thought it might be nice to ease into a new week with a little trip to Italy.

Now, I have been fortunate to have travelled throughout Italy on a few occasions. And during those travels, I saw homes ranging from modern apartment buildings wedged in between medieval dwellings, to modest farmhouses, to sprawling villas and palazzos. But never ever in any of my travels have I seen anything quite like the magical little round, stone Trulli houses that dot the countryside of Apulia. Did I mention they are round!?


Don't they look like something right out of a fairytale? Living in one must be absolutely magical, with all of those whimsical curves and alcoves.



Have a whimsical, magical week, sweeties!

Haha, Erin, I was so hung up on how you would get the furniture in that I never even thought about hanging pictures! Guess you would have to resort to hanging posters ;)

It really is something out of a fairytale (except with way comfier beds and sofas, I'm sure). I oddly just read a post about Italy on another blog -- maybe it's a sign I need to book my ticket and go?

I'd like to thankyou for commenting on my blog. Naturally, I came and had a peek at yours, and I really love the pictures in this post. I'm always thinking about what I could do in my private library, so every time I see something new, whimsical and like it's straight out of a story, I get all excited! Anyway, take care.

Well, hows that for inspiration to go to Italy! The white washed brick interiors are gorgeous. Thanks for the encouraging comment! You are so right, traveling and seeing these things is not something one will ever regret. xx

ps funnily enough the first thing these little houses reminded me of were zulu mud huts!
