I have two passions: interior design and writing.

I started blogging a few years ago in hopes of satisfying my craving to write and at the same time to stay in touch with my passion for interior design.  After a couple of months I found myself a little bored, in a sense that I wasn't really exploring my creative side as much as I had hoped to, therefore deeming that blogging just wasn't enough for me.  I knew then and there that I had to be creating something; something tangible, something real, something people can actually pick up, feel and admire.

At the time, being close to the holidays, I had been making plans for my Xmas dinner menu and table decor and immediately went on a hunt for unique napkins and tablecloths that would allow me to mix and match patterns to dress up my table.  I wanted good quality linen in modern, sophisticated prints.  I set out to find such beautiful things.  Much to my dismay, I couldn't find what I was looking for in home decor boutiques and kitchen accessories stores and so I went on an internet rampage to find them.

I was disillusioned by the glorification the internet had provided for objects that had no bearing on my interests.  I knew exactly what I was looking for... I just couldn't find it.  I then had an epiphany... I immediately knew there was a void in the market for such things, and TaaaDaaa... the light bulb went on!  "Hey, if I can't find them out there, why don't I make them?"  I, tout de suite knew what I was going to create.  It was a "now or never" situation and I knew I had to seize it.

And so, many months later... here I am.  My online store and brand name "VIA SAN VITO", named after the street where I was born in Italy.  I hope you join me in my new venture where I will do my best to provide you with beautiful textiles and accessories for your home, and if nothing else, inspire you to make your home the haven you dream of.
