10 Favourite Artworks from Affordable Art Fair 2017

Also this year I visited the Affordable Art Fair in the beautiful Battersea Park (so irresistible with all his autumns colors). Same as last year I didn’t bring any artworks home ( sigh!) but I selected my top 10 list of beautiful things: here we are:

1/ Sophie Derrick | Portrait

Beautiful big size digital prints and covered with acrylic colors. This young artist is photographing the act of painting onto her own my skin and then paint on top of the photographs,  blurring the boundaries between the two. Lovely pastel and bold colors are a bold artwork that will fit every space (and my husband n.1 favorite from the fair).

A Minimal Wedding Mood board

Blackstone House

Last weekend it was Openhouse here in London, the most amazing architectural festival that gives free public access to lots of buildings in the capital and around the country. While most of the people generally hit for the iconic buildings in the city center, this year I opted to stay local and I discovered a beautiful gem just around the corner from my house:

This new build is designed by 6aArchitects  and is nestled tightly into an irregular corner plot in North London and is split into three apartments.

The client – an artist and restaurateur – briefed the architects with a series of her own photographs depicting the stacking of everyday objects. The result is a minimal space, with a very strong character. The materials are rough ready, a perfect combination of wood, exposed concrete, brass and scratched white stucco.

The featured staircase is the fluid that connects the 3 apartments. The top floor apartment is the most beautiful one and has been decorated by the homeowner with an exquisite taste using a mix of old and new pieces.

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!!!

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.
