Beautiful Italian Ceramic Tiles

Beautiful Italian Ceramic Tiles

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:

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.

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.

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.
