    I love the vase & my home would be Art Nouveau.

    Probably France, although I love the style of American mid-century modern, too.

  6. Tough question. I'd have to go with the United States, because there are so many different styles to choose from — Art Deco and Mid Century Modern being 2 of my favorites.

    I would definitely choose Italy, the colors, the art, and the Mirano glass are awesome!

    I would have to go with Bali! I love the island, tropical look from many locals but I love the Balinese use of beautiful wood.

    I love the colors and vibrancy of the Italian vineyards – Tuscany country. It's reflected in the beautiful colors of the Novica vase!
