SPARKLING CHANDELIERS HANDING GRACEFULLY FROM tall white ceilings. Dark hardwood floors supporting white marble tables, buttoned sofas, and upholstered chairs in a pickled bluewood color*. Wrapped colorful sweet goodness displayed on mentioned marble tabletops - from macaroons and cookies to cakes and cupcakes. And ice cream. Oh, and did I miss it? Bunny eared chairs. May I say interior heaven?
The only way this charming space at Dolce la Terrazza could reach fantasy levels of awesomeness would be if they had a white rabbit sprint around the place with a pocket watch in his hand mumbling something about being late and disappearing through a small door. He didn’t appear though, nor did I grow any smaller by eating the ice cream to be able to fit through the said imaginary door. Is it because my name is not Alice?
My first visit was one of those rare occasions when I am tempted to smuggle out a chair from a public space, only to be held back by logical reasoning because claiming “But your honor, it has bunny ears on it!” would not really help me in court. I would probably hear something in the lines of “OFF WITH HER HEAD!”
Apart from dreamy interiors that make me feel like I am in some sort of a real life Alice in Wonderland adaptation, another thing that makes me happy are scarfs in autumn. Yes, you can wear them all year round, but as the colder weather gains momentum in autumn, scarfs combine necessity for warmth and fashion statements into pleasing visuals. They are pretty, okay?
As a notorious scarf collector, I decided to start The Scarf Project, an inspiration manual meant to showcase the different ways you can incorporate scarfs in your daily outfits. Stay tuned for the project series coming to Dilek Aspires these following weeks!
*Don’t ask. Pickled bluewood was the name of the color an extensive Google search provided me with after I submitted the color code my Photoshop color picker selected.
