I know this website is selling silk beddings and silk pillowcase but, after some months, I decided it was the time to talk about something different. After talking a lot about skincare and how silk can help us in our daily routine, I will try to tackle another topic that has always been close to my heart and on which I am specializing in this period: interior design and everything that deals with home.
When I was a child I was used to identify the houses I liked and imagined their interior, the colors, the furniture and all those objects that make a warm and welcoming interior.
Over time I fell in love with French houses, with their high and stuccoed ceilings, their antique parquet floors and those windows from which a magical, special, almost unnatural light enters. These are the houses that only need a glance to live in and a few simple objects to make them personal and sophisticated. And in fact, once we find such a house, how can we furnish it better? What are the objects that adapt to the house of our dreams?
Those who know me know that, as a child, I have had the opportunity to love many things. My grandmother had a tailor shop and the fabrics have always been a source of inspiration, joy and creativity for me. Furthermore, by spending the summer between the countryside and the sea, I had the opportunity to appreciate nature and in particular trees, birds and flowers.
Therefore, the first thing I would insert in a space that I love are colored cushions and pastel-colored fabrics that bring out the natural light. I would therefore think of light linen curtains, ethnic fabrics to cover sofas (if, like me, you have animals!) and silk embroidered cushions that reminds to nature.
As for the colors, I would prefer light colors but I have to admit that a large room with high ceilings and natural light would also recall a dark color on the walls.
As a nature lover, I love collecting plants of all kinds. Green light then to potos, ficus benjamin, spatiphyllum, kenzia and all types of sagging plants that help you to furnish your flat and fill those difficult spaces.
Yes, even to ethnic items bought during a few trips; the house is our refuge and must talk about us and our past. So do not be afraid to exhibit scrolls, pictures or musical objects from an exotic destination; they will not only remind you of that particular moment of your life but every guest will be thrilled about it and ask you to tell the story of that trip or that particular object.
For today we have talked about interiors in general but in the next articles, we will focus on some more delicate aspects. See you next time!
