In her well-known lifestyle blog “From My Dining Table,” Ms. Skye McAlpine writes: “I live between London…and Venice, where after all these years, my heart still lies and where much of the inspiration for what I cook, eat and write about comes from." Porte Italia was honored to be asked to add our own design touches to Ms. McAlpine’s homes in both cities, including this Lombardia Bamboo Nightstand decorated by hand with touches of gold leaf and butterflies.
