Home Building

Place must be in this year... When I saw the article on 20 Places to Get Your Art Fix in the New York Times and I saw the wonderful Museo Praz mentioned then I knew it. Museo Praz is the Roman house museum of the scholar Mario Praz. Active after WWII he chronicled his obsession with interiors in the An Illustrated History of Interior Decoration From Pompeii to Art Nouveau and wrote a lovely memoir of his homes called the Life House of Life-and yes I have read it cover to cover. Oh and he embroidered his own seat cushions-kindred spirit.
