When Albert Wintered in Naples

Albert Hadley's former cottage, Naples, Florida
I have such fond memories of all the time I spent with Albert Hadley, when he had a winter cottage here in can read more about this in previous posts of mine...DF

  1. Dean, I do hope we can meet and talk one day, as you have the most amazing stories, I just know it!!
    That color palette with the iconic wheat sheaf table, seen in the homes of Laurent and Chanel as well!

  2. Oh K,
    I never - or had forgotten- about the associations of that table!
    Thanks for reminding me!
    Here's a little teaser story for you. One time I was invited for drinks at the Hadley cottage, (there were many times) and so, I got there, always with great anticipation and quivering pleasure, and WOULD YOU BELIEVE, the entire ceiling of the room shown in this post WAS ON THE FLOOR!!! That's right, there had been a plumbing leak, and it caused the ceiling to fall in! Albert never said one word. Not before, during, or after...WOW !
    Talk about understatement!


Please do comment, love the rapport!
