Living in the open air

Category:

Home overlooks ‘en plein air’ spaces to enjoy nature. Places are interpreted, furnishing reinvented. Key word: flexibility.

New fabrics for upholstered pieces, with innovative technical characteristics in a mix and match of materials more suitable for the outdoor, and more resistant to the humidity, salt, sun and chlorine of swimming pools’ edges. Little suspended pagodas, lanterns, beds in wicker, canopies in rattan reminding of the exotic atmospheres of Berber tales, hammocks and gazebos and white draperies. There are many classy solutions to let the park of an elegant villa become really special, or the patio of a house in front of the sea, or a luxurious garden on the edge of a swimming pool. Everyone is looking for ‘accessible’ escapes, in an age making us live daily at more and more frantic rhythms.

A sophisticated scenography frames and creates a new privacy for prestige abodes of unvaried elegance: easy-chic atmospheres, featuring minimal prestigious furniture and essential solutions. Outdoor spaces are distinguished by absolute relax, on the edge of a swimming pool or in a garden. Chaises longues, sofas and footstools, with big fancy cushions create domestic islands, wide and cosy, for convivial occasions and social events. Again, bright sofas, woven chairs and cocktail tables for terraces and escape gardens. A new attention to design connects domestic space to reception.

Interiors and exteriors engage a fluid and magnetic dialogue, offering a new way of living, with a continuity between private and hospitality, characterised by matching colours and coordinated furnishing, defined by wide windows and majestic plants. It’s the homes of contemporary living, where even skyscrapers don’t give up green and little Edens can be found on the most coveted rooftops in town. Ready to discover the relationship with nature through the direct experience and the privileged observation of the environment, moving from the nearest spaces around us and our privacy.

Enjoying the pleasure of living outdoor, of a garden and its hidden corners, of a sheltering porch or of a wide and open terrace over a metropolitan landscape, observing seasons and the various hours of the day, furnishing the outdoor with the same care and refinement dedicated to the rooms. A new idea of living outdoor, transforming ephemeral moments of escape in inalienable occasions of recollection and return to the serenity of life.

Vintage Playroom Ideas Perfect for your Little Hipster

Nowadays playrooms are incredibly boring. It’s a harsh truth. It’s all a myriad of white, with white, with a few splashes of colour, with white again. We’re not saying there aren’t good designs out there, we’re just stating the fact that most of the times it gets buried deep under the beautiful madness that is design on the web. But good design, above everything else, doesn’t have to be or to feel modern, per se.  If you happen to be raising a little hipster (which is totally cool, hipsters are incredible trendsetters) or happen to be one yourself, we believe you’ll enjoy these designs as much as we do.

Inside Belmond Hotel Caruso Amalfi

Once I read that if the landscape of human emotion was to exist in a country, it would be Italy. And I honestly couldn’t agree more. I have been overlooking the breath-taking view of a magical suite, onto the unreal scenery that is the Amalfi coast. I am left speechless, and not just today. But in the ‘right here and right now’ of every time I visit the Italian coast. And get lost in admiring it in all its beauty. And felt the implacable urge share this sublimity with others. So here’s my homage and reportage for today: Inside the Belmond Hotel Caruso in Ravello.
