Minimal Warm Taiwan Interior

I just came across this lovely Taiwan Minimal flat and I couldn’t resist posting it here on the blog. Designed by the Taiwan-based studio CH Interior ,  it’s a triumph of warm wood, gray accents, and white walls.

Top 10 (affordable) Lounge Chairs

I’ve been on the hunt for a Lounge Chair for a while, I quite like the fact that our living space is open and not cluttered, but at the same time, I’d  love to have a little reading corner, where you can curl up and get cozy while watching some movies…

I quickly realized that beautiful armchairs are pretty expensive – sigh  –  so I started making a short list of my favorite ones:

“Milano – Storia di una rinascita is a beautiful book with black and white photos from 1943 -1953: a reportage from the destruction caused by the II World War, to the rebirth of the City. It’s the catalog of the exhibition at Palazzo Morando (Via Sant’Andrea, 6 – 20123 Milano). Highly recommended if you’re around!!!

The cashmere blanket is gonna be perfect for the cold winter London days, while the Menu Salt and Pepper grinder have been on my wish list for a long long time, I think they will be a nice addition to my kitchen.

5 tips to choose a minimal bookcase

1. Space: considering how much space you have is the first step, I love long walls covered by books, but in small flats, it could suffocate the space. Look for something modular, that can grow together with your collection…

The Perfect Bookcase

Happy Sunday everybody! Just a quick post to show you our new house addiction:

the perfect bookcase

I grew up in a house where books have always been an important element, we had an entire room dedicated to it, we called ‘The Library‘ (that was my dad’s kingdom :-)).
I always love to see books displayed in someone’s house, I think they really give the personality of who is living there.

Anyway, it took me almost one year to pick the perfect bookcase, at the end I decided for the simple Jessie leaning bookcase by Habitat. Even if I am a minimalist fan I think a good bookcase could lift an interior without looking too messy.
