The Slow Life Hideaway in Montepulciano, Italy is an ideal place for peace and discovery. There you can reconnect with nature, experience the rustic beauty and the delicious flavors of Tuscany. Inspired by slow life and nature Karin Lijftogt, the owner, was able to reconnect with her “former life” as a fashion designer in Milan and let creativity run through her hands. The result… a very home made and detailed oriented B&B.
While we loved many of the unique accessories, the whimsical pillows found throughout, truly inspired us. We where happy to learn that Karin hand makes each one of them, drawing then cutting the design on black paper and printing it in cotton. She then fills them with lavender from their own production.
Pretty to look at and beautifully scented these pillows are a vivid expression of passion for design and the joys of rural life.
