Rome findings - shabby decoration

Hello everybody! As you know, some of my lunch breaks are real scavenger tours among the local markets of Rome. Of course, I have one-hour lunch breaks but I try to make the best of that hour, and try to capture interesting findings and buy very interesting décor pieces anytime I stumble upon. I am so lucky to work in the historical center of Rome which is a real fortune for all those people like me that get suddenly caught by an uncontrollable desire to take pictures of nice objects for the home décor. These markets are real treasure holders. You may find antique objects or shabby shic furniture, iron wrought wall clocks, wood boxes etc. Just give a look at the stand I visited the other day. It is full of nice romantic pieces for a shabby chic house. I was tempted to buy those grass plant and create a green corner in my kitchen or in the entryway. I will have to think a bit over it because we are still painting the walls… seems like an infinite work. Have a great day!

Wonderful pieces of decoration, frames and grass plants for only 3 euros each vase.
 The lamp is so candidly shabby chic
These grass plant are not real, but they look like they were real. I love them!

When I found this post in my mailbox I couldn't prevent myself from sharing it with you all. One of my favorite architecture sites Remodelista published this tiny but wonderfully divided apartment where little space doesn't necessarily mean clutter, no bookshelves, no playing areas for the kids and no great parties with your friends. This family has got everything, even in a small apartment. Here every single furniture has been conceived to accomplish different usages. Plywood is the absolute protagonist. Just think about how many things you can achieve with this pretty but poor material. It is versatile and elegant at the same time. I really enjoyed looking at this nice small appartment. Hope you enjoy it too. Have a wonderful week-end!

In this time of the year I have always been a fan of neutrals but I am finding out I am a little too monochromatic lately. I am always putting my camel trench, white little jacket or grey blouses. I don’t think I have been more neutral addicted than this year. Of course, I am happy about it. I grew up with a mom that is still very fond of neutrals. They just look great on every one and whatever complexion you have. They are just  timeless and I never get tired of these colors, in fashion and interior.

ROOM OF THE WEEK - Neutrals everywhere

This week's room is all about mixing neutrals. Golden frames, leather chairs and carpets, glass tables and dark hued blinds, not to mention the beautiful warm hardwood floors. Is this living airy, spacious and charming? Have a great week-end!

Italian style - Lusso italiano

When it comes to Italian luxury apartments there is always something that catches the eye, the perfect mix of modern, contemporary and classic pieces of furniture. It is the Italian secret for a perfect blend of different elements in interior design. Italian appartaments are real treasure containers. In every house you will find a piece of furniture belonging to the past, carrying a history of its own, the history of the family or the past ages and generations. It is this very special feature that I adore and love about Italian apartments. Today I want to share with you a luxury Milan attic apartment, divided in different spaces and ambiences where modern and classical forms give birth to a unique Italian style. Enjoy!

Autumn moodboard

Hello there! This year's autumn palette to me is neutral grey with leather and dark cherry, burgundy touches. I find those combinations timeless and extremely elegant. Some colors never go out of fashion and to me fashion is not about fanatically following trends but following my personal taste. It may sound a little bit pretentious but I am partly influenced by trends, although even the most indifferent person in the world, when it comes to fashion trends inevitably gets inspired by them. Hope you enjoy and have a great day!

Small Scandinavian apartment - Piccolo appartamento scandinavo

Hello there! I have been so busy lately and haven't had a minute for my lovely readers. with a family and a kid September is just about organizing and juggling different things, from work to child's needs. I had to find a babysitter, carry on some other Diying activity in my apartment. It still needs a lot of work and I can't say when I will be able to post some decent pictures of the living or the bedroom. I wish it looked like this one I am posting today. It is a small Scandinavian apartment, where spaces are perfectly divided and organized. It is all in one space. A kitchen in the corner and a bedroom encompassed in the living and caged into a beautiful glass box. Isn't it wonderful? Have a great day!
