I went to a delightful dinner party at my friend Pamela Ruiz's home!!!
Pamela, an American living in Havana for over a decade,
is married to Cuban artist Damian Aquiles.
And they have a delightful thirteen year old son!!!
Their home is warm, cozy, and magical .....
I felt as if I had stepped back in time!!!
The well-loved house has not been "redone or refined " .......
it is completely original!!!
There are wonderfully "paint-worn" doors & walls,
a delightful garden, loads of books ........
and floors covered with sublime vintage Cuban floor tiles!!!
The furniture & accessories are a beguiling blend of styles,
vintage, mid-century, & contemporary ....
with Damien's work creating the focal point!!!!
It was a lovely evening!!!
Pamela was a delightful hostess ....
and the paella was amazing!!!
