Random Inspirations of interiors and design: April 2014

Image via etsy
As I’ve told you here, April is my favourite month of the year.
This April has run so fast and so full of tasks: lot of work but also so many interesting things going on, first of all Milan Design Week, where I’ve spent two hectic days meeting many other design bloggers and wandering around the fair and in the city among thousands of design new products (I’ve created one special coloumn for Milan Design Week, and if you’re curious about how I’ve spent my time here there’s my recap of it…).Fortunately, after this there were Easter (short holidays) and few other festivities, so time enough to rest and enjoy spring, even if the weather seems to be crazy with a turnover between summer-like days and rainy cold ones…

Talking about colours, I’ve been fascinated by this pendant wooden decoration by Jeni Maus of Found Rentals & JL Designs discovered here (have a look, the whole setting is beautiful)

This monthSundays Interior Trends have been mostly about the trends we have spotted in Milan.
If you’ve lost it, here there’s my trendspotting from the Milan fair and an interesting guest post by Bagni dal Mondo all about bathroom trends!

Italian Bark original finds
: something original that have hitten my attention at Milan Fuorisalone in Tortona Design District. 1. loved the space fitting by (and their products too) 2. this glass lamp is full of ceramic, by Vezzini & Chen Design  3. Bimbi chair is a coloured children stool in cardboard, designed by T.Magpie design




And a very Original Interior: this is part of Matthew Williams snap of photos of the transforming apartment owned by LifeEditied’s founder Graham Hill…the mot of the project is
Design your life to include more money, health and happiness with less stuff, space and energy.
Sounds interesting!


This is

the quote of the month
(sounds right, how many times did I complain about my own stress?…):

Finally, let’s say goodbye to April with these two barking design experts! 

(This cute image have been taken from House of Harvey, a blog written by an American designer and her barking friend Harvey…needless to say I love it, my little dog loves it too)

_ Come vi avevo già detto a inizio mese, Aprile per una serie di motivi è il mio mese preferito.
Quest’anno è stato un Aprile corso via davvero rapidamente, tra moltissimi impegni, ma anche un sacco di eventi interessanti, primo tra tutti la Milano Design Week, durante la quale ho trascorso due giornate davvero frenetiche tra design blogger e tra migliaia di novità di design, sia in fiera che in città (ho anche creato una rubrica esclusivamente dedicata alla Milan Design Week, e se siete curiosi di sapere cos’ho combinato a Milano c’è anche un piccolo report fotografico…sempre se non siete stanchi di sentirne parlare, sono sicura che molto probabilmente è così e vi capisco!!)

Fortunatamente, poi sono arrivate le festività Pasquali e altri due ponti festivi a darmi un pò di tempo, per riposare e per godersi un pò questa strana primavera che alterna giornate estive ad altre davvero fredde e piovose…

Ecco, come mi piace fare per ogni ultimo giorno del mese, le immagini più belle prese dal mio profilo Pinterest e da qualche bozza che non ho avuto la possibilità e lo spazio di pubblicare durante questo mese. Spero vi piacciano 🙂
