Laura Seppänen Black and White House

Today’s time for a new home tour. We’re going to Helsinki to visit the lovely apartment of the Interior Designer Laura Seppänen. 

I found her house in ATMINE (if you don’t know this website you should check it out, especially if you love to have a look inside other people’s houses like me…) and I totally have fallen in love with it.

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.

The Perfect Armchair

The Perfect Armchair

Say welcome to our new Lounge Chair (I still have to give her a name)!!! If you remember my last post about the top 10 Best Lounge Chair I had a clear idea that a Mid-Century piece was the style to go for.

the perfect mid-century armchair

I had almost decided to buy the IKEA EKENÄSET Armchair, but my boyfriend made the point that if we wanted a vintage style chair we should perhaps trying and look in a Vintage shop for an actual vintage one (good point, well made….). That’s where our research started: we visited few vintage flea market (there are lots here in London) and some antique shops, but we couldn’t find what we wanted (or it was out of budget).
