Welcome Home and New Discoveries

After being on holiday for a week, I’m back in a sunny London full of energy! Sometimes a little break is what you need!!!

And what’s better than discovering that there’s a new kid in town? Yes, because ARKET just opened a shop on Regent’s Street

The Scandinavian brand from the H&M group is a ‘modern day market that offers essential products for men, women children and the home. ARKET in Swedish means ‘sheet of paper’ and it alludes to concepts like Archive, Archetypes, Market. Sustainability is also one of the main values of the company,  from the materials sources to the making process.

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.

10 Best Cafes/Restaurants in Milan

Next week the Milan Design Week kicks off (also called il ‘Salone del Mobile’), I’ll be spending just a couple of days there and I can’t wait for it.

Milan is showing off the best of itself during the week and all the showrooms and art galleries open their doors to design events and installations.  In this city furniture is almost as important as food, so don’t forget to treat yourself to a nice meal. Here’s my top 10 list of cafes and restaurants around the city.

1/ 10 CORSO COMO

This cafe’ is hidden inside a traditional Mialense Courtyard, once you crossed the door from the busy/party Corso Como road you’ll find yourself transported into this amazing space: it’s a cafe, a fashion shop and also an art gallery and bookshop at the first floor. It’s definitely one of my favourite places in Milan, I have to say, I never try the food, but I had coffee and drinks few times and  I’ve never been disappointed!
