It has been great to visit Finland again, with sunny days (again! I’m lucky, I know) and lots of great people.

I had the chance to visit Habitare, the leading design event of Finland, for my first time. For someone as I am used to visit crazy Milan Salone del Mobile, this Habitare fair was much more relaxed and in human scale. I enjoied time for coffees, time to talk with people, even time to talk on stage (yes! I did it). Also, I found lots of interesting design and such inspiring stylings and settings. Finnish can really do well on this.

If you are thinking of a fair in black and white, as Nordic does, in Habitare there was much more. Lots of new trends and colours, inspiring spaces, material matches. Eco design and wood were the leaders, together with new interesting moods and colours.

My favourite space was The Signals one: created by trend analyst Susanna Björklund, the exhibition focused on megatrends of decor and design.

The exhibit was divided into four different spaces, called Design, art or both? – Inhouse love – Comfortable chaos – Common roots, furnished with interesting mix of new and vintage furniture, handmade products, colours and accessories, to represent home trends.

And I was so surprised to find many things I talked you about last week in the posts hottest home trends for a/w 2016 here and here !

So just go through the images and let me know in comments what inspires you the most 🙂



Vi scrivo oggi di ritorno da una settimana ricca di design e ispirazione ad Helsinki, piena di immagini e novità per voi.

E’ stato davvero bello ritornare in Finlandia, trovare giornate di sole stupendo (ancora, lo so forse sono fortunata io) e conoscere tante nuove persone.

Per la prima volta ho visitato Habitare, la più importante fiera del settore design del Paese, e devo dire che ne ho apprezzato le dimensioni, non piccole ma decisamente a scala molto più umana rispetto al Salone del Mobile. C’è addirittura stato tempo per dei caffé, per tante conversazioni,persino per parlare di fronte a tutti (ebbene si!).

E se anche voi come me vi immaginate una fiera in bianco e nero, vi stupirò con queste immagini: ad Habitare ho visto un sacco di combinazioni di colore audaci, nuove, in angoli allestiti alla perfezione come solo i Nordici sanno fare. Design sostenibile e tanto legno, questo me l’aspettavo, ma anche tanti nuovi abbinamenti e mood.

Il mio spazio preferito è stato Signals: l’esibizione allestita dalla trend-analyst Susanna Björklund con focus verso i megatrend dell’interior e del design. E con mia piacevole sorpresa di molti ve ne avevo parlato anche la settimana scorsa nei due post qui e qui!

Godetevi le immagini e ditemi, cosa vi incuriosisce di più?
