Some fashion tips - ruffles, color and new trend - Un po' di moda

We all have our fashion favorite trends. Here are some of my latest obsessions. Ruffles and ruffles everywhere. They are feminine and romantic. The blue ruffle blouse Olivia Palermo is wearing in the first picture is one of my favorite ones. I was tempted to buy one the other day. I didn't but I am for sure going to buy it. It can be styled with a maxi skirt, with white pants or a pencil skirt as well. It is a very versatile piece.

Penisola Calcidica - Capitolo II - Halkidiki Vacation - Chapter II

This years' Halkidiki vacation is just a remote souvenir, even though it seems like it was Yesterday..... It happens with all those intense and beautiful experiences of life. Vacation days are some of those moments, it's that period of time you plan and yearn about and then they just go by so fast, especially when you try to get the most of your relaxing moments and go searching and discovering new places and new adventures. The Halkidiki peninsula has been a beautiful and surprising discovery to me and I can't be more happy about it. Greece, it's no mistery, is one of my favorite spots for a relaxing and easygoing vacation. I love its culture, I love the atmosphere I breathe in that country, I love its kitchen, I love its landscapes and most of all its seaside. The Eagean is just wonderful.......... Halkidiki is the place where Aristotles was born (Stagire, its birthplace is just a few km away from Sithonia, the peninsula we chose for our vacation). Let me say that Sithonia, the central finger of the peninsula is the quietest and most family friendly. Kassandra is well-known for its night clubs and animated nightlife. Mount Athos is where the eremits live and where very antique monasteries can be found and visited. It's one of the most mystical places to visit. The entrance in the monasteries is not allowed to women. Thessaloníki, the capital city of the Makedonia region, the second biggest city after Athens is just so full of life and just a very elegant and contemporary and European city, even though bizantine, ancient greek and roman vestiges are in every corner. Don't miss a visit in the city. It's a wonderful experience. Just to give you and idea of my vacation, here are some pictures of some of the places I visited. I hope you love them and hope to inspire those of you who still have to plan their holidays! Have fun!


Il ricordo delle vacanze è ormai lontano, sebbene a tratti sembri ieri.... Sensazione che capita a tutti di sentire, specialmente quando si tratta di ricordare i bei e intensi momenti della nostra vita. E le vacanze sono uno di quei momenti, tanto attesi durante l'anno, che purtroppo, passano così in fretta, specialmente quando sono scandite da incontri, viaggi e scoperte. La penisola Calcidica è stata una di queste meravigliose scoperte, una vera e propria sorpresa per una come me che ama la Grecia in tutte le sue sfaccettature, la sua natura, la sua cucina e l'atmosfera che vi si respira.
La penisola Calcidica è quel posto che ha dato i natali ad Aristotele (Stagira si trova proprio qui, vicino a Sithonia, una delle tre dita della penisola), è il luogo dove si trova il Monte Athos con tutta la storia bizantina che lo avvolge e le atmosfere mistiche (e grigie, a differenza delle altre due penisola dove il sole regna sovrano) che lo rendono un luogo particolarmente adatto alla meditazione e agli eremi. Non per niente è stato scelto come luogo prediletto dagli eremiti che vi abitano dal VII secolo dopo Cristo. Insomma, per farla breve, la Calcidica e il suo capoluogo Salonicco riservano tantissime sorprese. Storia, siti archeologici, chiese bizantine del V secolo dopo Cristo e soprattutto un mare caraibico dai toni cangianti dell'azzurro e dello smeraldo. Un vero e proprio paradiso terrestre che si sviluppa su un territorio di pochi chilometri, pieno di storia e natura incontaminata. Dato che creativeordinette non è un sito di viaggi, non mi dilungo oltre. Vorrei condividere con voi alcune immagini per darvi un'idea delle mie vacanze greche...... Buon tour virtuale e buone vacanze a chi le deve ancora fare!
La penisola si sviluppa in tre dita. Noi abbiamo scelto la tranquilla Sithonia, Kassandra invece viene prediletta dai giovani per la vita notturna e movimentata. La terza penisola è il Monte Athos.

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!
