International Herald Tribune: Expatriate Bloggers Chronicle Details of Home Renovation

Writers' tales seem to impress audience with their exotic setting

- the paper edition -

Our renovation and PalazzoPizzo was featured in International Herald Tribune, the global edition of the New York Times! (I blogged about it here). The story about several home renovations (half page) was published in the Properties Section on Friday, May 4, 2012.
 
Here the extract about Palazzo Pizzo:

- extract of the article -

You can read the full story online at nytimes.com. Additionally to the online version, the printed paper edition of the IHT features a "renovation blogroll" with some more expat bloggers who write about their renovation projects in Europe: 



The Herald Tribune's blurb says:
PalazzoPizzo.com The Crosetto family renovating a palazzo in Calabria, Italy. Lots of photographs and a detailed description of structural and aesthetic decision making.

My post about hardwood flooring - when I asked the readers to make suggestions - was mentioned in the story and can be found on this blog here:

    1. Sure, I will, it is something special. Only the interviewed bloggers got informed last week that the story will be in nytimes.com and in the print edition of IHT on May 4. I am glad to share this event with the others that got a hard copy mention.

  2. BTW I just found the 400 year old farmhouse!
    As MamaB from "LiveLoveConquer", the main story, is not living in a 400 year old house, but in a villa from the 1970s (which makes the house a bit over 40 years old), we were thinking of a typing mistake.
    But the 400 year old farmhouse does exist - it is in the Czech Republic, check that out over at the "czechthatout" blog, see blogroll for details.

  3. Congrats on your appearance in the IHT/NYT! Nice article, and I'm sure it was nice to check out some of the other blogs as well to get new ideas. Hopefully it'll bring you some publicity:-)

    1. Thank you Sine. Yes, it was nice to discover some other renovation project blogs I have not known yet.
      Also traffic increased since the article. But strangely not that much via NYT, more through my long established readers. So thank you, Sine, and all other readers to visit my blog and for the friendly comments!

    1. Dear LindyLou, thank you for being a regular reader and commenter! This is even more rewarding then a media mention. I hope I can keep this blog exciting enough to have you and other readers visiting and find information and inspiration.
