I’m just checking in while abroad and have some great content upcoming for when it’s back to the grind for me! Until then I’d like to point out the amazing, seemingly inherent Italian focus on design. Every cafe, apartment, door, window, shop…everything! Beauty is everywhere in this country. In the States, our focus is on being better, doing more, earning more, achieving more. Here it is about creating better aesthetic, looking nicer, feeling better.
Neither is right or wrong, in fact I think it would be perfection to combine the two ideas. Let me know your thoughts in the comments on which you focus on, and how you could better improve the alternate trait wouldn’t you?
