Design Hotel in Lecco – Casa sull’albero

I’ve been home quite often in the last month (due to a special event I’m planning in October…). The last time that I was there, I had the opportunity to visit this amazing design Hotel: La casa sull’albero in Lecco.

The hotel is composed by two modern villas made of wood and glass designed by a local Architect: Giorgio Melesi.

With just 12 rooms and suites it looks like a private house, surrounded by a peaceful garden, and tall trees and with a breathtaking view over Lake Como.

Regent’s Park House

Regent’s Park House

I think it’s time for a new home tour today! A while ago my friend Massimo asked me to photograph one of his project: this stunning flat not far from Regent’s Park in North London.

The Bedroom is simple but bright and minimal. The two bedside table are Meduse from Casamania. The Black & White Photo on the wall is by James Morris, one of my favourite architectural photographer.

The little wood side chair, found by the owner at a flea market is probably my favourite piece in the all flat.

The Bright Living Room found space for the dark metal of the Standard Jean Prouvé Chairs by Vitra and the Cavalletto Table by Cassina.

Highlights from Milan Design Week 2017

Highlights from Milan Design Week 2017

This past design week in Italy it’s been sooo nice. I’ve never seen Milan that busy !!!! Since I spent just two days there I decided to concentrate on two areas: Brera (my overall favourite) and Tortona, I regret I didn’t visit the Ventura – Lambrate since I saw so many nice things on Instagram.

Anyway here’s my Top Ten:

1/ INTERNO ITALIANO 

Hidden in a little corner of Brera I discover this brand inspired by the Italian way of living and created by Giulio Iacchetti. Internoitaliano objects “enjoy a special status: they are happy objects, the fruit of a 50/50 joint effort between the designer who designed them and the craftsman who lovingly made them,” I think you can really tell by the look of them !!


2/GIOVELAB

GIOVELAB is a small but sparkling ceramic studio based in Trentino. They are inspired by simplicity and produce an unconventional table collection made of porcelain, stoneware and wood from their local land. I was absolutely in love with those little spoons and the all ceramic collections (the packaging is also very cute! Perfect for a nice present). You can order from their online shop.

Life has been pretty hectic in the last few weeks, lots of deadlines at work, and trying to squeeze in my half-marathon training with the rest of the daily tasks it’s been pretty challenging….pffff relax that’s what I need!!!

This amazing Vincent Van Duysen Penthouse in Antwerp seems to offer the perfect place to relax and clear the mind. I wish I could spend some time there today:
