Palazzo Rucellai Inside Out: 6 Centuries, 6 House Secrets

Palazzo Rucellai sits and waits. Nestled among the bright and busy commercial boutiques that line Florence’s Via della Vigna Nuova, the fifteenth-century house is a beacon of reserved elegance, quite unlike its hulking contemporaries—Palazzo Medici, Palazzo Strozzi, Palazzo Pitti—which unapologetically command entire city blocks as well as throngs of checklist-happy tourists. Lovers of fine architecture—indeed, any serious student of Italian Renaissance art—recognizes Palazzo Rucellai as the unc...

Tips for visiting Versailles

Versailles is an immense art piece. Everything currently on the 2,000-acre estate was thought out, designed, and built meticulously over 100 years (1683-1785) to become the outstanding place it is today. And although every single nook and cranny of the estate, from the furniture in the palace to the groves and paths in the gardens, is worth seeing, you probably only have a limited amount of time in your hands. That’s why we’ve asked French art historian and architecture expert Dorian Dallonge...

Our lock-and-leave culture: the rise of self-storage and clinging to stuff we hardly use

Moving, downsizing, long-term renovations, deceased estates and divorce are all factors in the relentlessly increasing demand for off-site storageAbout once every six weeks I go to my least happy place. It’s a massive warehouse in the industrial back blocks of Port Kembla, near Wollongong in New South Wales, housing a storage facility called Super Easy Storage. Because it is a no-frills operation, it does not offer 24-hour access like the more upmarket companies do, so I have to call ahead to sa...

Where to find the best desserts in the San Fernando Valley

I have long had a mixed, even perverse relationship with desserts. I grew up in a world of puddings — rice pudding, tapioca, My-T-Fine chocolate and butterscotch (both with a much treasured rubbery crust on the top), Jell-O, Junket Rennet Custard and Junket Danish Pudding — several of which you’ve probably never heard of. For me, dessert is pudding, and pudding is dessert. But for much of the world, pudding is just a footnote; a proper dessert includes chocolate, whipped cream, pastry, fruit and...

Little ~ Edward Carey

I have spent an awful lot of time whilst reading Little by Edward Carey, and since, trying to remember if I ever went to Madame Tussaud's as child. Have I ever been there... Surely I would never forget a visit... I can clearly remember interminable hours on school trips to the Planetarium next door. The tedium of staring at the night sky on the domed ceiling which seemed to lose its appeal after the first five minutes, and we'd all wish we were next door in Madame Tussaud's instead.  The ver...

NYPost.com: ‘Green Book’ is a touching story of friendship against all odds

Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen (Patti Perret) New York Post By Johnny Oleksinski November 16, 2018 For audiences needing a warm break from cold Oscar bait like “First Man,” try “Green Book,” a film that leaves you feeling good instead of like a trauma victim. The lighthearted drama, about a road trip by two men — one white, one black — is unflinchingly optimistic. The movie, set in 1962, is based on the true story of two New Yorkers.

Now There’s a New ‘Emma’ Adaptation on the Way with ‘Split’ Star Anya Taylor-Joy

If you’re not a classic literature fan, then you may not be familiar with Emma, a novel written by Jane Austen.
