Entries in Italy (79)
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.
It's Friday thankfully, and I have a massive of list of things I need to get done since I have the day off from my day job. I love the holidays, I just hate all the running around. Anyway, I have about 2 minutes to get this post done so please enjoy some lofty eye candy by Italian architect Roberto Murgia.
I found this fun apartment while doing some blog research and had to share. The 65m2 space is located in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France and is the creation of Turin, Italy based architecture firm MG2 Architetture. It's a funky blend of modern and mid-century, bold and sassy colour and some of my all-time favourite lighting.
It's been a few years since Jo featured the mesmerizing images by Italian photographer Serena Eller Vainicher, and it seems that her work just keeps on inspiring. Eye-catching and perfectly composed. European spaces always intrigue me. Who else can get away with somewhat tacky patterned tile floors?
