(A recurring theme on my blog is me posting things while thinking to myself, “I bet every other blogger and their dog has already covered this ground, but who cares, I’m going to go ahead and post about it anyway,” so apologies if, in fact, your dog has already showed you all of this.)
Yeah, I could live there is a D16 feature wherein I post pictures of homes I want to break into, kick out the inhabitants and move in. This time, though, it’s not a home—it’s Bar Luce, a café in Milan designed by Wes Anderson.
It is perfect. I mean, of course it’s perfect. It’s perfect because Wes Anderson designed it. It’ll also make your teeth hurt and possibly rot from all the sweetness, because Wes Anderson designed it. NOW LET ME LIVE THERE.
I’m not sure where I first saw a photo of Bar Luce, but I pretty much immediately thereafter wound up in a candy-colored hole on Instagram, looking at the #barluce hashtag. OMG. I kind of want an Instagram photo of everyone in the place Instagramming everything, because every inch of it is ready for your carefully composed, artfully cropped, precisely balanced square format shots and your Crema filter. Or F2 on VSCO with a smidge of fading, whichever! I’m partial to combining the two, but…well, I digress. Here are some of my favorite Instagrams of Bar Luce.
