Today's love / neon

A pop of neon is a fun way to brighten up any room, it's a great addition to kids rooms, living rooms and work spaces. There are plenty of decorating choices when it comes to neon, including a great variety of fabrics, objects and paint colours - a real treat for the home owner and decorator. The sky is the limit really when it comes to decorating with bright shades and the good news is that there are no rules and regulations, just mix and match, add and take away until it looks and feels right. Try a few different combinations (give yourself at least a couple of options) before making the final selection. Just remember that if you want to keep it fairly neutral just add a few neon touches with scattered cushions or vases (they can be easily substituted) artwork or a single chair. If you want to go all out select a dark wall colour and add a couple of pieces of neon furniture, it'll look fantastic! Either way just have fun and change things around until you are happy.

Today's inspiration / timber panelling

Timber panelling can be a stunning feature both inside and out. It's versatile and has a lot of character. I must admit I am a huge fan. Growing up in Italy and spending most of my childhood holidays in the beautiful northern region of Lombardia definitely contributed to cultivate a deep appreciation of all things wood. I love the moody ambience that can be achieved with wood panelling. The look is earthy, warm and comforting. It's a favourite choice for alpine habitats and a cool element when used in milder environments. Definitely a winner.

Victorian home in Melbourne

This single level Victorian home by Studio four is located in the heart of Prahran in Melbourne. It is a stunning example of impeccably executed design. When architecture and surroundings are taken into consideration the result is always outstanding. The neutral palette of whites and greys is offset by the oak joinery and flooring, the oversized windows make this home incredibly light and airy and help create the perfect setting for the owners' books and other treasured collections.
I think it's an awesome place to call home.

Inspire me Monday / fine dining

The dining table/dining room is without a doubt a favourite space of mine. I simply cannot resist beautiful tables and chairs, pendant lights and rugs; the essential elements (in my opinion) for the creation of the perfect dining area. Dining tables/rooms often act as work spaces in today's way of life and therefore they need to be sturdy, well designed and practical. With a great range available on the market, price is often what dictates the choice. Luckily we don't need to spend a small fortune anymore to own a beautiful piece of furniture, nowadays a lot of stores have successfully launched a range of good quality, reasonably priced products which have been well received by all of us. 
Bottom line: we now no longer need to sacrifice style and quality for a smaller price tag. 
A variety of looks can be achieved. Here's my small selection of favourite dining rooms from around the globe. Simplicity is the key.
