Interior Design > Art as furniture upholstery

We admired not so much time ago, on the fashion runways, the new Collection from Moschino for Spring-Summer 2020 ready-to-wear. This time, the famous designer Jeremy Scott has dedicated this collection to Picasso and his muses. He created an entire collection using different canvas as art play. And he was not the only one who has decided to insert accents like flower-art-print as a local focal point (like Prada) or to create entire outfits in art-printed fabrics (like Blumarine, Alexander McQueen and other).

Interior Design > Industrial style elements

The Industrial style takes its identity from old factories and industrial buildings and is frequently found in urban areas. It is suitable for apartments, where predominant architectural elements are high ceilings, brick walls and concrete flooring, raw wood, and visible steel pipes.

This post I would like to start with a disclaimer: I am not a doctor, nor a nutritionist, but I get to read a lot and I choose always (always!) several different resources before I formulate my own opinion on a topic. Today I want to open a discussion and share my opinion on which habits we shall apply in our daily routine to live a better and healthier life.

I often think about life in big cities: always on the run, traffic stacks, different nationalities, high concentration of restaurants with every kitchen you can think of and boutiques at every corner. In my life, I lived and traveled for work or study in cities like Bucharest for a bachelor’s degree, shortly after New York on the “work and travel USA” program for almost six months, then followed Turin, Moscow, and more recent Milan. Now that I’ve got married and moved to a rural area near Milan, I admit that sometimes I miss the atmosphere and energy of a big metropolis and with great pleasure return time by time for business purposes or shopping.

Today we are witnessing an elevated comfort in living: the ability to work from home, keep hundreds of books in a purse (on a kindle), chat internationally with no cost by using apps and do shopping sitting comfortably on a couch. And all these thanks to the magic presence of the internet!

Places & Customs > 3h Boat trip from Porto Cesareo

At the beginning of July, my husband and I decided to have a small vacation for about a week in the region of Puglia, South of Italy. The weather was promising to be great, with temperatures bouncing over + 35° С. And the water of the Ionian Sea fresh and clean.

Places & Customs > Medieval life in Pavia

Founded more than two thousand years ago on the left bank of the river Ticino, Pavia is one of the most beautiful cities in Lombardy. Here are preserved the characteristic road structure of the Roman castrum along with several historical churches of great architectural value and a Castle. In fact, for a short period, Pavia was the capital of Lombardy Kingdom (572-774). Moreover, since the Middle ages, Pavia has been also a university town, today recognized on an international level.

Winter is a time of fairytales and spectacular white landings, especially if the location is somewhere in the mountains! We can gather at cozy fireplaces, listen to beautiful relaxing music, drink hot chocolates and great cocktails, depending on preferences. We are all waiting for one of the best times of the year, a time for a family gathering – the Christmas time
