Continuing my love for all things Italian this week, I visited the beautiful Rosa sisters of Sicilian heritage, Elana & Nadia. Both have crafted a unique niche in Perth’s fashion scene, Elana is the Buyer at Dilettante (the luxury fashion store) and Nadia’s about to launch a candle range. Here a first look at Elana’s incredibly tasteful home that she attributes to none other than her Nonna!
