Yesterday I had a special meeting with a special person (special for me): Vicente Wolf. As I already declared in one of posts I have a huge admiration for Vicente Wolf’s work and his successful story. Recently I interned in his office for about 3 months and I had the privilege to meet and work close to him. Not feeling satisfying with that I asked him to have a meeting where we could sit down and talk a little bit. This meeting it was scheduled for yesterday… I couldn’t wait for that! I got there, rang the bell and for my surprise he was the one who opened the door!… We walk me to the meeting room, where is surrounded by a lot of beautiful and interesting all kinds of photography collected by him. It’s an amazing special room, in my opinion. In his gentleman way he asked me to sit down. I started explain to him my reason why I asked him for that meeting… I was nervous! He noticed that and ask me why I was nervous if I that spend time there already for a while as an intern?! Well, then I expressed my admiration one more time, and told him that I never could act “normal” in front of him, because he always been a myth, an idol for me! Even working there for a few months made my feelings to be changed. Perhaps made my admiration for him became bigger by observing how polite, generous and giving he is. So then I told to him that I prepared some questions and I would like to ask him… Then I started asking the questions and writing down what he was responding… Eventually, I stopped writing down because the interview became more like a conversation. So I started trying to really listening what he was saying and learn more about him and the field of interior design. He spent about 40 minutes with me. I think it was very generous from him, considering the fact how busy he is! I feel so grateful and lucky to have experienced this moment!

However, I left the place more thoughtful then ever… I went to a coffee shop, asked for a hot tea and start writing down everything that he said. I did not want to forget he’s advices… One of the advices he gave to me it was to visit the museums a lot, try to “look at things”, find out what you really like! So that what I did! I headed to The Metropolitan Museum of Art… I’ve been in The MET few times… But this time I started looking at things in a different way… and I found so many beautiful things again… I started looking not just the object by itself, but the object and its colors, textures, shapes & forms, details, periods, etc. I took pictures of all the pieces that I liked, and here I would like to share some of them!

I have been so intensely busy this week… between finishing my hubby and my summer trip plans to China, preparing to host my dear mom, trying to make a business project  happen, finishing my internship… between the normal stuff of every day! I feel so bad that I’ve been displacing my blog… I haven’t been on time with it! My goal is one post per week! But the week has been passing by so fast! I can’t keep up!!! I need some “Zen style” to slow me down and relax me…! It’s the Asian Style: a minimal, clean, contemporary style. What I like about the “Asian Style” is the fact that is simple and open! It could be a little cold and lack charm, but it’s very practical. This week what I did need the most it was practicality. I think life can be so much less complicated if we live in more open spaces, with less things…! What do you think?
