homes sweet homes



One of the things I like the most is taking a peek into other people’s homes, and the London front doors and windows are so rich of details… with just a quick overview from the outside you can play guessing games about what it would look like inside or about the people who lives in there


from the the monothematic to the eclectic


to the trend of color coordination that I spotted in the stylish Portobello area


as green on green


and pink on pink.

lowry in london



This last time in London I programmed to visit the Lowry exhibition at the Tate Britain


I chose a rainy morning as it was the perfect weather for a museum visit but I really couldn’t have made a better choice as when I came out and found myself in front of the Thames under the falling rain I felt as I was walking inside a Lowry painting.


I really fell in love with this british artist that catched in his paintings all the poetry of the urban daily life of the industrial britain: be sure not to miss this great exhibition that is going on until the 20th October

paper art


On my London days I went back to visit the Saatchi Gallery, which currently host an exhibition called “Paper” (going on until the 3rd of november)


the paper was the support or the main constructing material for the young artists artworks


What I love about this place is that sometimes you get catched by the artworks themselves


and other times by watching the people who move around the gallery big spaces.

4 days in london


Yes: London again! I was so happy the few days I spent there and I also got the luck to catch the last incredibly hot and sunny days of the english summer


I stayed at a wonderfully located friend’s apartment, just above a nice and busy street food market


finally got to eat a proper english breakfast


spent a lot of time looking at the legs of the Greylag gooses of St.James Park… they look amazing!!!! Something in between an alien thing and a slice of ham


wandered around the Victoria Station area, which is quickly changing and now looks like a gigantic construction site


and strolled down the canal from Little Venice to Notting Hill…

Hello everyone!

Ok, I haven’t posted for more than a week but I was busy-busy or just away… expect some highlights from two amazing european capitals coming soon in the following posts :)

I’m also super excited about a few new projects that are about to start and that I hope to share with you soon!

What about you? What are your plans for the new season?

carnia corners


A few corners of some small quiet villages between the mountains of Carnia.


It is not the first time I visit these villages in the summer as I’m in love with their simplicity and vintage feel: you may have already seen a few pictures I posted here and here (actually I just realized I already photographed and posted the picture of the same board here above!)


What I most love about Carnia is its rustic vibe: almost no hotels around in its tiny villages, but I discovered that you can book your staying in a proper local home through the Albergo Diffuso (Scattered Hotel)
