Today I am happy to look back realizing that exactly seven years ago I was creating this website.
Exactly four years ago I was leaving my job to starting working 100% as a freelancer. Two years ago I was working 24 hours a day to write the first ebook. April has always been a special month to me – probably I always get really inspired in spring.
As a way to “celebrate“, I would like to collect today the most interesting articles and links from the past years that may be useful in these days as well. Jump below to discover maaany inspirations for your home, about future trends (even the most actual ones lead by the corona crisis), tips to work as a freelancer, places where to travel virtually (and hopefully for real one day), but also some past articles that tell you something more about the history of this blog and community.
I created IB seven years ago and initially I didn’t even know how and why, I just knew that I was really unhappy in the life and work I was doing at the time.
Since that moment, I’ve always thought that the best ideas are born at the worst of times, and this has always helped me to face even the worst experiences with a smile. In these years, from a blog italianbark has become a real digital platform but above all a community of creatives from around the world, sharing the same passion for design and interior. I feel so grateful for all the people and experiences that this blog brought into my life in these years – some of them shared their quarantine experiences with us yesterday in this article.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful journey with me ♥
