This week’s selection of interior design pieces is based on natural materials, rustic appeal, and timeless design, all Made in Italy!
We choose quality over quantity, natural over synthetic polymers, and raw over polished. The latest tendencies in design, lifestyle, and fashion are going towards sustainability, ecology, and preservation. That is why this week’s selection will be made of pieces of great values and individuality:
Hi Beautiful Ladies,
This week Italy entered the phase-2 after COVID-19 lockdown, and we are stepping towards “new normality.” Besides, we are moving towards summertime, and now the temperatures are up to + 30°C / 86°F, but soon will get hotter.
So, I felt inspired to make the change of my seasonal wardrobe some weeks ago and had the time to think about what I’ve missed and need to buy to complete it. I took a look for pieces to wear in an office job/meeting, for a walk in the city for business or leisure, and summer on the Mediterranean coast, on the beachside.
This week’s favorites will be a selection of table, suspension, and floor lamp of a modern countryside home appeal. The preference is given to the simplicity of shapes and ornaments, natural materials, and neutrals.
Let's talk about colors!
Today I want to share with you my reasons why I LOVE RED as a color, and hopefully, I will inspire you to love it too. There is no other color that can bring so much power, energy, and passion into your life, more than this one.
KARTELL is a beautiful Italian company, where at its heart were always merged innovation, design, and technology. Since its beginnings, the company has collaborated for over 70 years with big names in Architecture and Designs, such as Alessandro Mendini, Patricia Urquiola, Philippe Starck, Tokujin Yoshioka, Antonio Citterio, and more. From these unions were born many unique design objects, today available to the broad public.
Like many of you, I love to surround myself with B E A U T I F U L things, and S H O E S are one of them! Moreover, I am continually looking for interesting pieces and experiment with different styles to find my DNA in fashion. Sometimes I make great choices; other times, I fail miserably. But I accept that as part of the process.
The creation of the armchair Grand Confort LC2 was possible thanks to a powerful, although a short union, between Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, that gave birth also to the Chair LC1 and the Chaise longue LC4.
This gracious chair was born when Ludwig Mies van der Rohe received the engagement to design the German fair pavilion for the International Exposition in Barcelona from 1929. To complement the vertical and horizontal lines of the building, covered with beautiful marble and had onyx walls, colorful glass, and chrome columns, Mies designed the chair Barcelona in a way to give an elevated and a not too solid structure to not interfere on the dynamics of the space.
The beauty in decorating spaces is that you get the opportunity to express yourself through a range of colors, shapes, styles, and textures. These are all instruments in the hands of an artisan who can use his knowledge, creativity, and imagination to shape a functional and pleasant living space for its inhabitants.
It is up to the designer to make wise use of every free space in the house. There are many ways to do that: there might be structural niches you have inside the walls or open space that usually remain under the staircase. Apply on the walls a deep boiserie creating shelves units and even modules, or placing entire units all over the wall made, that secretly holds multiple-purpose divisions.
