Aslı Tunca and her husband Carl are living and creating in this inspiring building in Galatasaray, Istanbul.
Aslı's background in fashion design and Carl's professional knowledge of sculpting, painting, and restoration of antiques joined forces to create their company based in Istanbul.
Spaces they decorate fascinate people due to their sublime skills and taste for using antiques and designing contemporary furniture and accessories.
 This painting belongs to Ismail Acar, a painter who specializes in Ottoman Culture.

One of the favorite pieces of Carl is hand carved wooden garland from 17th century stands next to the chair of their design.
Turkish and Belgian cultures, often visits to Venice, and their open-minded personalities all merge in this space and create a harmonious and charming atmosphere.
Books and files in the chestnut-paneled shelves, which look like taken from an ancient library, are actually their own design. They have been coated with goatskin parchment that they processed themselves and hand labeled on the spine.


When the train arrived to Bergamo, I was still sleeping. I was wishing that the travel took longer because Milan to Bergamo is a really short, hour-long, ride.
But she arrived with her Vespa to pick me up and as soon as I hopped on, the fresh air awakened me immediately.
After buying our bread and newspaper from the cute city center, we arrived at her house in an 20th building. 

Her family.

Striped pants and top, both of her design. She purchased the leather fabric from Istanbul.

        Pistachio cake with cream and plums served with her mothers porcelain cups. It couldn't get better...
Risotto with beans for lunch.

She was one of my classmates from college, whose works I liked. The visit to her house was also a farewell. She will be working in Copenhagen in the upcoming months for a really prominent designer.

I started liking these limited Martin Margiele Tabi boots when I saw on her.
While she was purchasing these photos from a second hand market, the seller told her that these photos were army boy's 'best friends' in old times.
