I know this blog is supposed to be about interiors etc but I am experiencing a sort of melancholic home attachment I want to share with you. Therefore, here it is my favourite - and first - car: the 1957 Fiat 500 says much more than you can imagine about Italy. Memorabilia, the best ever.

We've been thinking of changing the dining table for a while: the one we have now was perfect in the previous flat and works quite fine in this one. But, due to the dimensions of the space, we have to place it right in front of the window door and therefore we have no access to the balcony from here. ... It could sound as an excuse as we have access to both the next rooms, but I do feel a round table would look perfect next to the Parentesi lamp by Flos and would enrich the decoration.
I collected some images for inspiration, including the everlasting classic Saarinen's Tulip and its easy-going counterpart by Ikea. But, I think a smaller version of the one designed by Int-sight for Iconista would be the perfect choice. I had the chance to see and touch it when I was there during the photo shooting we did (I know, still cannot believe it..) and I loved it, especially the texture: the effect of the light on the top would underlined it even more. Could I have eventually come up with the solution? To be continued...

From Alex Graef's renovation of a 19th century villa in Vienna, a blank canvas where life can take place. I love this idea, don't you? The detailing of the doors and custom made elements is very interesting and reminds me of Japan: it's not the surface that defines the element but the shadow of the empty space.

Pernille Arends' beautiful bedroom was one of the most repined pins a few months ago: who doesn't remember that beautiful hexagonal bedside light coming down from the ceiling?
Recently I spotted some more images of her home on the Style Files and wanted to share them with you. What do you think of the extensive use of wood? I find quite interesting how she managed to mix and balanced so many different element made of different qualities.

Elle Decoration Christmas issue is all about green this year, with painted walls to small conifers and accessories. Soft brown tones and copper accents add that twist to the inspiring collection of ideas for the upcoming festive season. My favourite detail is the dark green wall that works as a perfect background for the glittering decorations of the Christmas tree.
