Mario Buatta, May 2014
"My favorite flower is grape hyacinth, (and here it's) placed in a little Delft urn. I collect animal figurines, mostly dogs: a whippet statuette from 1850, a framed needlework painting. I’ve had this monkey paperweight for over 20 years, and later on I found his paperclip-holding son. I’ve owned this model Rolls-Royce Coupé for more than 40 years. It’s the car I’ve always wanted but am never going to have… unless you send me one. I love the music of Noël Coward, as well as [that of] Cole Porter.
