Emerald green

2013 is coming and the Pantone color of the year will be Emerald green: who does not like the hue of this precious gem!  Sophisticated and intense colors for the above beautiful geometric pattern printed on silk by Dedar Milano.

Merry Reading

Holidays are coming and what is best than curling up on a sofa with a good book in your hands, a tray of just baked cookies nearby and a fireplace on.

Can you guess who she is?

Can you guess

She would have turned 100 years old this month. In this picture she wears a simple skirt, a simple sweater, but a big smile! A friend said: “ For her to dress up for big events means to wear a clean shirt”. An issue of Vogue in 1959 describes her as a feminine, petite lady with pink lipstick, a small nose, not beautiful but attractive, mostly because “she is passionate, enthusiastic, warm…a woman definetely happy with only a hint of rage in her eyes”.

A simple lady…and yet…she became an icon in the world of design.


Please don’t comment on Facebook or other social media, but only on this post, so nobody could see the answers before they are published by me. The first correct answer will have “an honorable mention” and a link to their website or blog.

The answers will be published all together in the New Year.

Let’s celebrate the holidays and the end of 2012 with the sophisticated approach by the brilliant Spanish-Milanese designer Patricia Urquiola, who created for Baccarat these unique cut crystal  stemwares with vivid colored base.

Past and present beautifully combined.
