Ethereal Italy

The Malatesta house in Pergola, Pesare e Urbino province in Italy. Nice architectural finishings and a clean interior combination with soft colours, almost ethereal, here and there with vivid slashes of colour. A very effective design for a peaceful stay, and the location is delightful.

Brit Art House

Terrace: inspiring... Curved study room: hot!

Kensington, heart of London. It might as well be placed in paradise, as you can't reach a clear sight of the urban paraphernalia... Beautiful and inspiring remodel by Gumuchdjian Architects. More below!

Paper & Tea

A beautiful store in Berlin dedicated to tea lovers. And as you can see, it was crafted to soothe the soul and open the mind to creativity. It's almost like entering a museum where herb is like... Art... Which then connects to the stationary. Beautiful papers with contemporary graphics in the form of greeting cards and wrapping paper.

The store design is powerful! A reduced but balanced colour palette. A clean and deceptively simple display system. And all things effectively organized in rational matrixes. A good combo. More below!

Ready Made by Bouroullec Bros

Nice colours, huh?... Bouroullec brothers steeped up again onto the easy living landscape. This new curtain system not only comes with great textiles, but it's also easier to apply/remove than the existent majority. Instead of the traditional full pole, it has a firmly stretched cord where you'll hang the pegs holding the curtain. Simpler than Ikea, easier than most, and the aesthetic result is quite nice. More fabrics, please!

And a Warmth Heart

Farmhouse in Skåne, Sweden. White and rustic, the way of the humbles in love with nature, tradition with a special knack for crafts. Nice carpet!

Chaps, don't forget to use scotch tape. And, when in doubt, apply art in 45º degrees.

Humble World Bundle

A good idea to fill your house: history. Cues of culture, some memories and connections with different parts of the world. Inevitably your guests will cling into a couple of stories for the rest of the night. Also this trick for the almost overly eclectic, along the house, gather your things by colour, culture, style, so to make connections and to order things up. Don't hoard.

Now go forth and see the rest of it!

Concrete Business

Hello, fellow citizens! We missed you! Happy new year! We believe this one will be tremendously special, full of the new and the wonderful. Seriously, big things will happen! Stay tuned, we'll collect no less than the best fo ya. Word!

The Tin, in Berlin, a restaurant/bar. Neutral enough, cold, a tad harsh on the surface, but see how magic flows interwoven in warmish light. It misses a little more green, to pound the balance into a more human and less cavernal side. But it's no sci-fi-faceted crap, just a romantic, spirituous eat-out where you'll be no less than inspired. Check it out!
