We Have a Winner 

Congratulations to Albarosa Simonetti of Brillante Home Decor in Vancouver, who is the winner of 'Paris Patisseries', the glorious book on Paris pastries and their artistic makers. It's published by Rizzoli and is amazingly informative. Recipes, too. 

Albarosa Simonetti, a designer and art consultant, wrote that her favorite feature on THE STYLE SALONISTE was my post on AXEL VERVOORDT. It is one of my favorites, too, and had lots of great comments. 

Albarosa was one of the very first designers to find THE STYLE SALONISTE when I first launched my blog last year. She sent bright and sparkling comments and encouragement and enthusiasm from the start, and I truly appreciated her comments.

Albarosa lives and works in Vancouver, and has the Brillante Home Decor and Brillante Design Travel blogs. She spends much of her year in Milan, where she studies and scouts modern furniture, art, and antiques. 

Congratulations, Albarosa. You will receive this splendid and lavish book from Rizzoli next week.
