Entries in Italy (79)
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!
Where else do you set up the offices of an agency specializing in the creation, management and promotion of top fashion brand ecommerce but an old shirt factory? Diana Corp.'s head offce in the Padua region of Italy mixes vintage with modern, recycled with original pieces. The company's creative director Margherita Silvestri guided the renovation from abandoned factory to fab office. A creative company in a creative work place.
I have done a couple of features on Italian photographer Max Zambelli recently (here and here), but since I find his photos so captivating, I thought I would give it another go. Absolutely incredible composition and light that brings these photos to life and have you craving more.
This 40m² apartment in Turin, Italy was once an industrial space now converted into a hip, modern dwelling by the folks at UdA. I'm always a fan of their projects as they are so creative, aren't afraid to add bits of colour and pattern, and they blend different materilas in very unusual ways. I also love their use of varying angles. Turns a boring rectangle into something far more interesting. (Previous posts of their work here, here and here).
