While there may be novels that change lives, it’s enough for me that one changed my thoughts on home decor. When an interview was relocated from New York City to Prague, I thought, “I must see the glass room.”

Three Prague Must Do’s
St Nicholas’ Church, Old Town
Widely considered to be one of the most beautiful examples of Baroque architecture in the world yet you can almost walk past St Nicholas’s Church. It’s once you get in that the magic happens. There are frescoes, marble, gold and statues that [...]
