absolute white

I have said it before and I will say again today that there is something that attracts me in Scandinavian design!! Maybe it is the presence of this absolute white, pure and powerful. As a child I grew with Italian design influence coming from my mother who loves the style and finds her relaxation in those warm earth colors. But as a young adult I started to explore more of what is outside of this side of Europe, and going up on the map, I discovered the Scandinavian design which I found, at first impression, attractive, different, and to some extend cold - totally different than the warm colors of Italian style. As I look more into what it has to offer, I come to realize the depths, the beautiful persona created around it, the amazing combination of different styles, bringing in the old with the new, the high-tech with the rawness of the objects.

With that being said, I managed to combine this style with a bit of Rococo - and this particular combination stands for my inspiration for my project on the restaurant. Even though, I have to admit it moves slower than predicted, I am, step by step, getting there; therefore, hopefully soon I will be able to show it to you guys.

Until then, here are some photos from my Pinterest showing this white I was talking about.

far far away land

I am sorry for not writing lately. This huge school project (redecorating a restaurant) and doing a research on patterns both in fashion and interior design and an in depth research of Moroccan style kept me extremely busy!

While I have been buried in books, I barely noticed that Australian Fashion Week is on...
Australia must be one of the places I am most curious to visit...I only wished it wasn't so far away!! I did promise to myself I will get there!!! Meanwhile, Australian Fashion Week is on and I was curious to see how things go and, of course, I went on Not too many details, but I will figure out more and come up with more details. Until then, some photos of Sydney and some of the people at the Fashion Week:)
