- Pop-up of the week: shoe store as botanical garden.
- A paper garden that rivals the real thing.
- A Parisian florist’s tips for foolproof flowers.
Above: Newly opened in Milan, La Vigna di Leonardo is where Leonardo da Vinci lived while painting The Last Supper. “Da Vinci maintained the garden and vineyard with great care,” says Francesca. “Midcentury architect Piero Portaluppi restored the property and they re-planted the vineyard with the same grape that Leonardo used.” We only hope they’ll be serving wine in the garden.
- Bunny Mellon meets Warhol (get tickets now).
- The best way to protect outdoor furniture.
- It’s just around the corner––and we couldn’t be more excited.
