Casa Mollino

You have got to head over to All Items Loaded and check out the full story of this incredible home, Casa Mollino, in Turin. Here is a snippet:

A house should be a reflection of both the essential and what is really important to you. If that is the case, good luck with deciphering the home of Italian designer Carlo Mollino (1905-1973 Turin). The apartment located in a picturesque two-story 18th century villa on the Po River, was never his actual home. He simply never lived there. Mollino designed the rooms from 1960 through to 1968 as a lavish and intricate settings for one of his more obsessive photographic interests, female portraits to create an inexplicable, vast collection of erotica.

Cicero

Tommaso Guerra contacted us about his newest interior design project and I absolutely love it and had to share. This can easily translate into designs for the home so get your imaginations going!

A bistro in the heart of Prati district in Rome, open from the early morning until late night:
pastel colours, light wood and colourful fabrics with varied fantasies.
A marriage between nature and serenity.
I figured that going at "Cicero" might be an harmony and finesse experience;
a beautiful space to live, in Nordic atmosphere.
Sitting in a under a large mid-air nest;
enjoying lunch as in a forest, between wood birds houses;
looking up and discovering 55 shades falling out...
The mature interpretation of fairy tale, the inspiration becomes game.
Welcome to "Cicero".

Masseria Petrarolo

An Italian idyll, a rural reverie, an historic farm house surrounded by olive groves. Could the daydream be more perfect? It could if the interiors are designed by Alexander Waterworth. Rustic and refined, rough and luxe, indulgent and spartan. Masseria Petrarolo in Puglia. Beauty in stone.

Eclectic

I think it's a safe bet to call these quirky spaces captured by Italian photographer Cristina Fiorentini eclectic. There is even a tree in the middle of someone's living room. My cats would LOVE that!

Black and white 

I bought a few Spanish decor magazines while on holidays (I had to leave them behind because my suitcase was overweight dammit!) and this eye-popping apartment was featured in one of them. It is located in Milan, in a building designed by noted Italian architect Giò Ponti, and is the home of Italian interior designer Barbara Falanga. This bold, graphic apartment is all about black and white, with retro furnishings from the 30s to the 70s. Glam with edge. Not for the timid!
