Flash Post: The Good Life

Slim Aarons La Dolce Vita

What It Is: If the idea of a good coffee table book is to simply allow you to escape, then I think I have a winner. Photographer Slim Aarons has compiled decades’ worth of jaw-dropping photographs of folks living ‘the good life’, primarily in Italy. This marks the fourth entry into Aarons’ ongoing saga of awe-inducing photography tomes, all of which capture that rarely seen glimpse of how lavish life can be. A stunning source of inspiration for decor, colour theory, and really just dreaming big, glorious dreams.

Who It’s For: Your sister and her husband upon returning from their honeymoon to Italy. Your mom and dad, to inspire them to take that trip abroad on their 25th wedding anniversary. Your very best friend that’s graduating from design school, to start her official collection of curated beauty.

What It Costs: The good life doesn’t come cheap – the list price is a whopping $98, although you can purchase it online for significantly less.

Where It’s At: Score it at Amazon for just $61.45!
