The Home of Elio Ferraro

Antique Expert and Gallery Store Owner, Elio Ferraro’s Apartment in Florence is busy, lively and interesting. I particularly love the balcony.

“Interested in discovering different cultures travel was an on-going preoccupation for Elio which led to countless art and fashion discoveries now amassed into an extremely eclectic and impressive personal collection. Beauty is found within the walls of his tranquil home in the historical centre of Florence; somewhat of an island or refuge. Rich colours and individual objects become united, presenting an awe-inspiring integrated environment.”

I was bought the most beautiful bunch of yellow tulips the other day (and again this weekend) and ever since seeing those lovely bright flowers on the table each morning I’ve been inspired to have flowers of all shapes and colours in our home. I will attempt some flower arranging of my own over the next two days with this as my inspiration.

Kilim Style

I’ve fallen in love with the oriental rug. I love the designs, the colours, the textures and even the smell of the thick woven material.

Anything Kilim or oriental design has landed on my Christmas wish list and I think a lovely, light coloured runner going through a passage would be a grand finishing touch to a home.

There are SO many beautiful colours and designs (which means I’ll have to do another post on them) but these are some of my favourites.
