So, our kitchen is almost done, but before I can share some photos with you (the sockets still need to be placed, so I am holding on before taking some nice photos…) I would like to share a mood board.
As I mentioned on my previous post the room is facing North, so it used to be quite a dark space (not anymore hehe), that’s also why we decided to go for a full white. We fell in love with those anthracite IKEA door handles (HACKÅS Handle), to break a bit the uniformity, and so the B&W theme came together pretty easily. I think is always good even before planning to have some clear idea of what the big picture should look like, so here it is mine:
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!
