It’s such a classic, you finish refurbishing one room and either you think of the next project (even if I swear I won’t do anything for a while) or you’ll just see something you like more and wish you did differently.
In my case, I discovered Elan Kitchens a lovely showroom in west London and wish I had seen their kitchen designs before I started.
They are official retailer for the German brand Leitch Kitchens a brand that I hadn’t heard of before. They create high-end quality kitchens, using carefully selected materials with an ecological process.

We finally decided to start thinking of our small flat renovation. Kitchen and bathroom are desperately needing some love and refresh. While looking for some inspiration online I started thinking about material and ceramic we wanna use (stone will be a dream but is a bit out of our budget). So last weekend I was in Italy and I discovered some new lovely ceramic manufactured, have a look:

You probably know that I love discovering new independent furniture brand. This month I discovered Nutsandwoods, a new Berlin based furniture design studio that produces lovely pieces.

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 !!
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.

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!
