Some Shades of Grey Obsessions

Lately my eyes are on the shades of grey interior palette and on the easy possibilities they have to combine in interiors and fashion. They make a good match with almost every material used in an environment. And they are more than fifty.

Like sea waves coming and going, the trends in the design field are easily switching the boxes of IN and OUT.

Here’s some of them that I continue to like and apply like some never ending blue jeans. I just had fun composing some collages out of them.

Dark Walls Dress to Impress

So don’t be afraid of the dark.

Especially when you deal with a big space, if you chose a dark wall paint dullness won’t live there with you. Dark colors walls also offer a warm and cozy atmosphere.

Plus use those accessories that capture light. They become the good friends of dark walls.

On “Design Italiano”

Triennale Museum in Milan is a never ending fountain of inspiration for art and design.

I’ve just seen the “Design Italiano Oltre le crisi” exhibition where famous pieces of what educated an elegant eye in the last century are silently occupying their setting like some renown artists on their scene.

There is a particular element in the Balinese design that adds extra comfort to the already made for relaxation spaces. And it is present in every family pavilion.

Bali Design Notes – Paradise Rooftops

The first impact when dwelling in a Balinese home or villa is of freedom of moving and mind relaxation. Situated only a few degrees below the Ecuador line, this floating paradise has an almost constant and  pleasantly warm mild temperature that sweeps away any constructions restraints linked to the cold season. The freedom to design and build (not higher than the coconut trees line though) enjoys its era in Bali.

Fornasetti, mago della magia

Some of Piero Fornasetti (1913 – 1988) amazing work was exhibited at the Trienale in Milan. The talented Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver was a genius of the details, to such an extent that it is hard to believe that a single man could create so many millimetric detailed art pieces during a span of a lifetime.

The Shabby Chic World

Ever wondered which style holds together the all-white walls, distress furniture, soft neutral colors, ecru fabrics, laces, floral prints and vintage linens?

Maybe the most romantic of all, the Shabby Chic started from the ’80 to embellish British and American residences, continuously adapting and incorporating new design elements. It’s characteristics are the distress furniture pieces, resembling the old style ones (not genuine), having the top coat rubbed and sanded. Some accessories may resemble the Rococo style, especially for lighting and wall paneling.

The Precious Kauri

It doesn’t lie on Earth but beneath it and it’s mining job taking it out.
Far away, in the North of New Zeeland on a small island reservation, lies the most ancient and precious wood: the swamp Kauri, buried under a peat swamp by an unexplained act of nature at the end of the last Ice Age.
