Feeling bored with your walls?

What about adding a splash of attractive color mix, go bold with abstract paints and add an extra matching accessory within a room to get the extra deco touch, such as pillows or a set of vases.

What I liked this year in Milan

Every year I visit the International Furniture Fair in Milan and try to remember all the beautiful new collections and check out what’s new at my favorite brands and they didn’t disappoint. However, about them a bit later, this post is about my new discoveries 😛

Here is my TOP 3 list:

3. Essential Home

Essential Home is a brand new brand, I liked very much their modern take on Mid-century look with geometric plays and high quality upholstery, to which I am strongly attracted to :-O.

The pieces are very original, with timeless brass finish and funky design. The quality goes without saying.

 

2. DOCA Kitchens

I knew Doca from before, but this year I checked out all the new materials and was impressed by the main kitchen, so nice (and taaaall 🙂 I have to say this photo doesn’t do it justice.

I updated their catalogs in my database, studied them and can honestly recommend for:

  • beautiful new worktop materials
  • fantastic durable finishes,
  • all styles of kitchens & wardrobes
  • surprisingly price accessible

 

  1. the winner – EPOCA HOME

Frankly, I found their stand spectacular and much different from what I remember from previous years. This new collection is timeless, though classic might not be your style (if you are the ‘white box’ person), but it has both classic and contemporary pieces suitable for any place.

If you are interested in any, let me know 😉

 

SPRING inspiration

With this crazy weather I never know if spring is finally here to stay or not. Anyways, today is a beautiful 22 degrees and sunny and I feel strongly springly inspired 🙂

I found these salmon-pinkish items (2 pillows from Zarahome, tray Aerin) that goes well with warm beiges (with pink undertones) and the sky or baby blue of course. The side table is also Zarahome, oatmeal linen sofa and accent arm chair is One Kings Lane, paint is Laura Ashley  Pale Topaz.

Pale Delphinium paint is the 2nd best and bolder choice, I can see it on the wall with a cherry tree branches in front.cherry tree branches_vintagepiken.blogspot.fr photo source: vintagepiken.blogspot.fr/2014/02/53.html

 

Shades of WHITE

White is back! 

It’s again the new trendy neutral, but this time forget painting all with off-white. We have at hand so many options of shades and if you mix and match, you can have a wonderful place that is not boring at all. Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and many more paint manufacturers promote the their whites with convincing arguments. 

 Benjamin moore trend of the year

Mixing the shades of white will create an airy and soothing atmosphere, visually will enlarge the space and will never clash with most of the objects within the room. If you choose the right shade, you can even make the room look more sunny or create a perfect background for other colors to pop out. Whatever your style preference, if you do give it a try, first consider to make few different samples on the walls/furniture pieces at home, as the hidden undertones can make a big difference. I swear you will be surprised 🙂

 

Benjamin Moore

Secondly, don’t forget to mix the mix different material textures within a room such as matt cotton, shiny leather, matt velvet and faux fur to add visual interest.

Surrender to the complexity of white.

In this abstract artist’s townhouse, the interplay of whites and light creates nuance and subtle beauty.

A thought (not only) about DINING.

Dine with cloth napkins, fine china, and silver at every meal—even breakfast! What’s the point of owning beautiful things if you don’t use them?
