There’s a lot I love about the work I do, but if I had to choose between it and a bigger life in Italy I’d take Italy any day. In a heartbeat. It’s not that I don’t love design. I just love Italy more. Thing is I always have. There was a time, quite recently actually, when I wouldn’t have admitted that to anyone. Not even myself. I was scared of looking foolish. Like a schoolgirl who can’t shake off a first crush. I don’t feel like that anymore.
My one word theme for the year is Brave. It wasn’t the first thing to come to mind. Easy and Light were contenders too for a while. But Brave is exactly what I need this year. Because without it I won’t be going anywhere.
