Max Zambelli encore

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.

Matryoshka

This 40 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).

Holiday chaos

As usual, I waited until the last minute to get myself organized for the holidays. I blame it on having 2 jobs and too many cats. :) And OMG this is the worst time of year when you've got nosy cats and no place to store wrapped presents out of reach. I spent about 4 hours yesterday wrapping presents and then we created a mountain of them by the front door so I can take the lot to my parents' house tomorrow to stash until the big day. I caught 2 cats on the pile within 5 minutes. AAAGGGHHHH!!!!! Needless to say I am so freaking busy so I whipped up this post really quick. I love this home. It is located in Piacenza, Italy, and is a fabulously modern without being too cold. There is some bold colour here and there to keep it from being too stark, some REALLY amazing tiles in the kitchen for a serious jolt of pattern, some walls clad in the same hardwood as the floor to warm the space, and some to-die-for lighting (I have always wanted one of those Flos Parentesi suspension lamps!). I'm not a fan of the bedroom or grey bathroom though but the rest makes up for these. Via Le case di Elixìr
