Days have become absolutely shorter and colder, first days of this October have been quite warm but now winter really seems to have started here….now it’s just a countdown till Christmas, do you agree? Fortunately there are many interesting things going on here. Finally I found some sparetime to visit Venice Biennale of Architecture this month, and it was worth a visit.. (just have a look at my Mondays Made in Italy post of few weeks ago for a short tour!)

Here we are with my favourite coloumn of the month, with some random design inspirations that have hitten my attention in these four fast weeks.

Many news for next month…there will be new partnerships and maybe a new coloumn as well. With other bloggers, I can’t say more now 😉 By the way, here is my selection from my my Pinterest account that I haven’t already shared in Italian Bark blog, from this rainy then sunny October…

And enjoy your weekend!


Let’s start as for every Monthly Inspirations post with some inspiring interiors I would have included in I’d like to live here








1. A cool mix of vintage and industrial-style chairs in this dining room from 2. Don’t give up with hammocks even if it’s almost winter. Why not an indoor one? (img via) 3. Photo-gallery wall decor from the black&white home of Swedish photographer Magdalena Björnsdotter , via myScandianvianHome 4. An ecletic kitchen with black elements selected by Mechant studio 5. This door in hardwood of this picture from Vtwonen is simply gorgeous 6. Or maybe do you prefer this black door? (foto © elisabeth heier)


This has been a black month (photo by Daniella Witte via ).

black palette

colourful facade

But I’ve loved this white facade with coloured windows as well (via)


The colour palette is what has impressed me in this facade:  it’s a British project designed by Assemble for artists and designers in east London I’ve discovered in Yellowtrace . The facade is all maden with handmade concrete tiles …



This building instead seems to be part of the sky itself, thanks to its glazed facade.

It’s the West Limerick Children’s Centre by SATA, I’ve discovered in Dezeen website


This month I’ve spotted so many interesting original finds from the net.

Look for example at the work of this pioneering contemporary artist from Tokyo, Motoi Yamamoto, who carves monumental two dimensional sculptures just by using salt, and nothing else…


dipped and died


Have you ever seen dipped and died wall art like these I found in insideCloset ? I didn’t and I love the idea…

Like the design of this lamps as well. Lasso lamp, designed by Quentin de Coster, is a real contemporary torch light (found on Trendland)


Quote of the month (via) . I’m working every day on this (and, if this was said by Coco Chanel, this must be a truth 😉 )



Ok, the Pink Dog is ready for Halloween.

He has taken inspirations from this selection of pet halloween customes ideas….

(this one is not a dog however ,it’s absolutely a ghost).

Enjoy your Halloween!!!
