Christmas Mood

 Christmas is coming in les than a month - so, time to collect ideas and inspiration! My latest finds:


Marie Claire



Exquisite craftsmanship and rare woods

That is what one thinks when sees the elegant and truely original furniture by Aaron Poritz, American-born designer who splits his time between Managua, Nicaragua, and New York City. They are a beautiful blend of high-quality craft traditions with contemporary design. Look and enjoy:



There is a lot in common between fashion and interior design: you dress your home in a similar way - with the same preferences for colour, materials, style. Probably this approach lies behind that growing number of fashion brands that begin to offer home furnishings, as you can see in my earlier posts like the one on the link above and many other posts on the theme.

Now we see another beautiful collaboration - last October "Nina Yashar, founder of Nilufar Gallery, has curated a selection of pieces from her rich contemporary collectible design collection that will be available on the MODES.COM online platform from mid October."

The beautiful pieces include works by Martino Gamper, Audrey Large, Bethan Laura Wood, Flavie Audi, Amy Lowry, Jonathan Trayte, EDXXKAT and Anestis Michalis. Have a look at some of them:

Modern Luxury Interior design Inspiration

If you, like me, are inspired by great design, interesting use of materials and new approach to interior design objects, enjoy a few of my latest founds, some of them part of the exhibitions during Milan Design Week this June: 


Draga and Aurel - Side table Bon Bon 

Memento Moooi Wallcovering Collection, but what I like here is the way it is presented with this beautiful hue which suits perfectly the elegant wooden armchair with brick colour leather upholstery.
The wallpaper is even more strikingly luxurious in gold on dark background combined with these golden upholstery chairs

Alphabet writing desk, Saba - it just invites you to sit there and touch it :)
