The first thing I did was make one loud gasp. Followed by even louder gasps.
The sight of hundreds of white umbrellas hanging down the ceiling of this room of “Le Jardin de Gabriel” (the 23rd floor of Lita's building at The fort), is breathtaking indeed. But then, again, Lita's interior designing ideas always are.
Lita has a book, which I helped her with, and thirty years of grace to show for them. She has been blessed with eyes to see what looks good—and in this case, gasp-inducing—for any structure's interior.
The huge room has a beautiful view of the whole of Makati, Ortigas, and of course, The Fort. From the outside, the view of this room is just as beautiful.
On my way home after I saw that umbrella room, it rained. Irony of ironies, I had no umbrella!
