VILLA VERSACE

Just got the Sotheby's catalog for the 2009 auction of Gianni Versace's Lake Como residence, Villa Fontanelle.  As you can see, I managed to resist the urge to scan the entire catalog.
Dirty clothes never stayed on the floor for more than a few seconds and beautiful gowns kept arriving, I had this fantasy that I was in an Antonioni film. I felt like a spoilt princess.  The Versaces really know how to live.

An opulent version of Camelot?

Just looking at these makes me want to weep...and reminds me all over again what a tragedy his death was.

That place looks luxurious. I can understand how Madonna felt like when she stayed here. I love those artworks.
