Interior Design > Design Objects - Table Lamp Snoopy (1967)
The playful character of the Castiglioni brothers is remarkably evident through their work, and some design pieces particularly express their love for experimenting with shapes and using their imagination skills with reflecting or creating personages.
Interior Design > Design Objects - Table Lamp Taccia (1962)
The Castiglioni brothers often created designs that challenged our perspective, and the table lamp Taccia, which gives the illusion of an upside-down hanging lamp, is an inspired example of that.
Interior Design > FLOU - The Culture of Good Sleeping
When we say “the culture of glass” we think of FIAM ITALIA, when we say “the culture of plastic” we think of KARTELL, when we say “the culture of modern sofas” we think of B&B ITALIA, but when we say “the culture of good sleeping” we inevitably think of FLOU.
The Italian producer FLOU, who introduced the concept of uniting great design and good sleeping, was founded by Rosario Messina (and his partners) in 1978 at Meda, a city on the North of Milan, a company which he will own entirely, with the purpose to create beds of elevated comfortability, quality, and unique design style.

Fashion Inspiration > The French Riviera Style
Hello Gorgeous Ladies,
Most of us must wear business attire every day of the week at the working place, no matter what we do for a living and where we work. But on weekends we desire to relax and spend our free time in joy, doing what we love the most. To feel this change of atmosphere and relief ourselves from the working stress and routine, we usually do some activities outdoors, wearing something that makes us feel free, comfortable, and stylish at the same time.
If you live in a city, you probably observed many times women wearing casual styles mainly because of the comfortability in silhouettes and garments with a prevailing percentage of neutral tones that can be easily matched to create a major number of different outfits. However, the risk of wearing only BASIC ITEMS IN NEUTRAL COLORS is that it may look boring and sometimes lack personality.
So, how can we create a basic wardrobe for the weekends that will always be comfortable, require minimum pieces but easily mixed and matched, and at the same time look stylish and express our individuality? Well, I might have just the right solution - THE FRENCH RIVIERA STYLE!

Interior Design > Palms Paradise - color scheme
Palms are exotic plants, always green, which give a luxurious appeal to the ambient. They will be the focal point in our color scheme today.
The luxurious atmosphere of a green paradise can be achieved in different ways and styles, and today I invite you to see together three distinctive variants to achieve it:
1/ in NEUTRAL TONES of whites – one will have a minimalistic vibe in Scandinavian style, with white walls, light flooring, and some accents in warm terracotta and green colors; another will have a more contemporary style with walls always white, covered with boiserie, and an intense presence of green and granite.
2/ in WARM TONES of green, honey accents and reddish woods, like cherry and palissander.
3/ in COLD TONES of blue, withstood by shades of grey and dark woods, like oak tint wengé and black ebony, intensified by accents of bright yellow and intense deep reds.
