Over the past 5 years we have worked with Anita putting together a large Tuscan farmhouse in Southern California.  She has been extremely helpful in sourcing reclaimed materials and furniture along with artifacts and local artisan created period pieces.  Anita’s knowledge of Tuscan architecture, culture and lifestyle have been instrumental in creating this unique home that honors the true Tuscan farmhouse.  We will continue to enjoy our trips to Florence and her guided excursions to the countryside forever looking for additional antiques and special pieces while enjoying the local people, food and culture that makes Tuscany such a special place.
