Chalkidiki vacation in the Aegean Sea

We finally made it! I am in a definitely vacation mood and guess where.....in Greece again. This year we are staying in Chalkidiki enjoying some beautiful sunny days surrounded by the turqoise Aegean Sea and a wonderful natural park of pine trees. Chalkidiki looks like a fork on the map and it is made up of three peninsulas. We have chosen the central peninsula, the quiet family-friendly Sithonia. Let me share with you some very nice pictures from the city of Thessaloniki, the second biggest city of Greece after Athens. Kisses and hugs to all of you! Of course there will be a full account of my trip here in the days to come so please, stay tuned!!

Havenly ideas for a wonderful rental decoration

When Havenly inspired to share some ideas about how your rental living can be transformed into a wonderful place, I loved the idea for two reasons.
One: We all are looking for affordable and stylish ways to redecorate our apartments and two: be it your apartment or not, rental living can provide us with some very functional solutions which can be applied to a house that you own.
I have always advocated the idea that cost and and pleasure in decorating must go hand in hand together. Nobody should spend huge amounts of money for a coffee table or kitchen hardwares. There are a lot of solutions out there that you should only discover. That's why the Havenly website was such a pleasant and useful discovery that I needed to immediately share with my readers. Havenly is all about affordable ways on how to redecorate your home and find functional solutions for your rental living (or not).
Here are some ideas that we all, from time to time, need to refresh a little bit. Some great ideas about adding some spritz and making everything look wonderful in your house.
And please, give a look at Havenly gallery of interiors.
Here is a gallery of pictures where these rental hacks can make the difference and definitely add style to the rooms.
 Add some vintage furniture. It will make your living more historical and culturale. Take a look at those wonderful scandinavian chairs and at the little iconic Eames. 
 Add color to your rooms. It will only take a day or two to transform your rental living. 
 Add a mirror, everything will look bigger in space and style. 
Add a carpet, my favorite one, the Ljapljung ruta from Ikea that you can have a few dollars / euros. I chose this rental living in Vicenza because it looks like my own living. I adore it.
Add some vintage furniture and paint it all over for a wonderful effect. This old suitcase was transformed with a few hands of painting into a stylish and functional nightstand. 

Have fun when decorating! Till next post!

Holiday rent house in Madrid - Stile e design in una casa vacanza a Madrid

Sorry for the long silence over here. I have had so many busy days at work. The good news is that spring is finally here and hopefully it is here to stay. Hopefully, because I am heading to a northern city and I am afraid I am going to find a very chill weather...... Well, I am in a very Holiday mood. Perhaps, it is because of the Easter upcoming holidays or this warm weather I feel in the air or a myriad other reasons... That's why today's post is about a Holiday rent house in Madrid. It's all about pure style and beautiful design. Natural tones all over the place are the true protagonists of the apartment. Don't you wish to spend a few days spoiling yourselves in the beautiful capital city of Spain? I wish I could..... I have so many beautiful memories of Madrid that whenever I come across pictures of the city, I use to think of that vacation of some years ago. Should I plan another trip? I leave you with that question and I hope to post some other interesting posts very soon! Have a great day!


Chiedo scusa per la lunga assenza sul blog, ma sono stati giorni frenetici, intensi e pieni di soddisfazioni. La buona notizia è che finalmente la primavera è arrivata, sto accusando un po' l'ora legale che trovo innaturale, ma pazienza, mi godo le giornate più lunghe al parco. Quest'aria tiepida mi ispira viaggi di piacere nelle capitali europee o in belle città italiane ed è forse per questo che oggi vorrei condividere con voi questo bellissimo appartamento / attico che si trova a Madrid.
Lo stile e il design di questa casa vacanza sono i protagonisti assoluti. Per l'arredamento sono stati scelti colori naturali e toni neutri, insomma i miei preferiti. Il grigio, il legno, il bianco, tutto in una perfetta combinazione di colori che creano un'atmosfera rilassante, calda e intima. Quando mi imbatto in foto di Madrid, ricordo sempre e con nostalgia la mia vacanza di qualche anno fa nella capitale spagnola. Forse è il caso che questo desiderio venga esaudito? Dovrei pianificare un altro viaggio? Mah, vedrò, vi terrò aggiornati! Intanto, vi lascio a questo tour e vi do appuntamento al prossimo post!

Milan Tour - Design inspiration

I am sooooo sorry about the long silence over the blog lately, due to work trips and a very intense agenda. Well, I could have found some time to write a post, but updating a blog is not a joke or a divertissement, even though all those who first started a blog, interpreted the idea of blogging as a webspace where you can dedicate yourself to your passions and hobbies.
One of the most interesting things I did lately was a special trip to Milan. I hadn't been in the second capital city of Italy since ages and I really found it renewed and had such a wonderful time, not to mention the wonderful interior design stores and interior design inspiration that I breathed in every corner of the city. I tried to make the most of it, but Milan is so alive and it offers plenty of design and art events that you can never have enough of. Here are some pics for you! See you soon!

Wednesday's fashion - The perfect outfit for a work dinner - Cene aziendali: cosa mettervi

Lately I have been wondering what is the perfect outfit for a work dinner. The answer is quite simple, but it took me a little bit of time to find it. I have Always loved the Little black dress, I have at least two pairs of black dresses, but when work dinner parties are at the corner I always find myself thinking wondering what to wear. This year's outfit will be the little black dress, styled in a very very feminine way, with a tulle blouse underneath. Here are some of my inspiration pictures. Hope you find them useful for your work dinner party as well.


L'outfit di quest'anno sarà il tubino nero o il piccolo vestito nero come dicono gli inglese. La sigle LBD è entrata oramai nel linguaggio modaiolo di ogni giorno. Insomma, avete capito bene: è quel vestito lanciato da Audrey Hepburn, senza tempo e che dovrebbe costituire il pezzo essenziale nell'armadio di ogni donna), ma rivisitato e reso un po' più femminile con l'aggiunta di pezzi in tulle.
Eccovi la mia idea del vestito nero romantico. Lasciatevi ispirare!

Appartamento romano - Home tour in Rome

In molte case di amici e conoscenti il divano bianco è il protagonista del soggiorno italiano. Scelta davvero di stile che da un aspetto elegante e pulito ad un interno. Va da sé che si tratta di famiglie che non hanno piccoli e neonati in casa, ma anche nel caso di nuclei familiari con figli grandi per me rimane un mistero il fatto di come questi amici riescano a tenere tutto bianco e pulito e affermo tutto questo con una punta di reale invidia ;-)
L'invidia deriva dal fatto che vorrei tanto anch'io avere un divano bianco e un interno dove il biancore dei mobili contrasta con i toni caldi del parquet e dei mobili in legno, ma mi è semplicemente impossibile. Il bianco resta lo sfondo perfetto per giocare con i colori, con gli accessori, con i cuscini e gli oggetti decorativi. Oltre alla leggerezza e all'eleganza che conferisce ad un ambiente, costituisce anche la base perfetta per qualsiasi gioco di colore. L'appartamento di oggi si trova in via Giulia a Roma e ha una vista spettacolare che da sola basta per renderlo un posto da sogno. Per non parlare dello stile essenziale e del bianco preponderante che aumenta ancora di più la luce che lo travolge.... Buon tour!

The white sofa is a classic piece of furniture in Italian apartments. It is the best and most stylish choice for households without children and toddlers. I have a lot of friends that have white sofas all around the house and they manage to keep everything neat and stylish (I wonder how do they manage to keep everything pulled together in such a perfect way and I must confess, I feel a little bit envious) I think the white sofa is soooooo beautiful and it's the perfect backsplash for those who love to accessorize with cushions, painting and decorating objects. The gorgeous appartment I am sharing today is the best example of how white and a herringbone hardwood floor are the perfect match for a perfect cozy look. I adore this apartment. This is the real luxury you can afford in Rome. A wonderful view on the tiber river, wide spaces, gorgeous furniture and soothing colors all around the house. Hope you enjoy! Have a great Thurdsday!
