Hello my friends! I am back from my little Italian getaway and enjoyed some relaxing days of best Italian ‘far niente’. As you can imagine, the beautiful country has inspired me and I’ve decided to share some first happy inspirations with you in today’s post. No worries, a full recap of my trip is due next Monday as a ‘From Place To Space’ blog post. Ok, and to be honest, I’ve missed you all a bit and – as some have noticed – I couldn’t completely disconnect. But I digress. Let’s feel a bit of Italian spirit for your life & home:
One: For a genuine Italian feeling you should be an Espresso drinker. And make sure to prepare your Espresso with style – for example with this foxy red Espresso maker.
Two: Design is a key word in bella Italia. I fell in love with the contemporary design of the Italian Bent Wood Chair.
Three: When thinking of Italy we often recall the big names of the fashion world. Luckily, some of them have quite adorable homeware lines. Like Missoni. And its Jocker chunky-knit wool throw.
Four: Everyone who has visited Italy knows one fact about Italian traffic. It is chaotic, loud and full of cool Vespas. I love this vibrant, orange hued version.
Five: One of my favorite souvenirs from Italy besides food: good quality, handmade Italian ceramics. Definitely a good option: the amazing pieces of Bitossi Ceramics.
Looking forward to read the “from place to space” post:)
I love Italy. My husband and I got married in Tuscany 3 years ago actually, in a “small” castle, and our day was amazing!
Ah, miss Italy!
I’ll take the chair please, it’s amazing!
Bella Italia indeed! There is so much to admire, from culture heritage, to nature, great design, food….It is funny, not so long ago I postet an article on my blog with the same title :). http://studiotrinajst.blogspot.com/2012/05/lago-di-garda.html
Great picks Igor! I´ll take that Espresso maker, I´m shore it would inspire me every single morning 🙂
I’ll have one of each, please! Beautiful design!
Oh my Igor!!!!you are killing me today!!!!I can’t wait for Monday’s post!!!!I am heading to Italy on July but before my trip I NEED to get inspired from your posts and “study” your reccomendations very very carefully!!!!!
I am looking at maybe going on a trip to Italy in late September. I am thinking Naple or Florence. So far I have only been to Rome. Can’t wait to read about the trip and that Missoni throw is gorgeous!
Oh Florence is still on my to-visit list!! Naples is a mess, but the surrounding & the food is like in heaven!!
Ah, Italy is very close to my heart. I spent a lot of my childhood in Italy so a little bit like second home. Missoni (my favs), my flat is full of their fabrics. Vespa (my big love), orange was a fad, not practical in London but LOVELY on your blog! Here’s to BELLA ITALIA! Ciao Sig. Igor!!
Ciao Igor! I must admit that I’m really good at “fare niente” especially when it involves a coffee. Maybe it’s the Italian blood flowing trough my veins, lol! Nice colourful choices here! I LOVE the chair and Vespas are popping up all around me. Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something…hmmm.
