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.”

Scatter Cushions

The count down to us moving into our new apartment has begun. In just over two weeks we’ll be settling into our new home and I’ll be surrounded by my things and best of all, back on our own couches and sinking back into the comfort of my scatter cushions.

I always believe there’s space for more, as long as there’s a gap there’s space for another cushion, however I’m not allowed to have anymore so I’ll just admire them from afar.

Blood and Champagne

Without letting the style run away with me and end in hoarding piles of crap, I really like all things botany and apothecary related. Prints on plant anatomy, chemistry jars, pot plants and apothecary bottles can all look so lovely in clean and minimal settings.

Raw Materials, Amsterdam

We visited a shop on Saturday called Raw Materials. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.

Everything in the shop is unpolished, weathered, used, recycled and made from natural materials. The pieces add a natural and industrial feel to interiors and come from exotic places like India, China and Nepal.

I could spend hours here.
