Dino Fino Home 

Last Friday, I went over to Dino Fino’s newly opened state of the art showroom. I was amazed at the detail and the good use of the provided space. 

After being offered an espresso, Nadia kindly offered to show me around and the very first item I spotted was this stunning ceiling light hanging over one of the amazing showroom kitchens. Apollo by Cattelan Italia, is a simple yet elegant ceiling light made up of boroscillicate glass sphere clusters. Nadia explained that the Apollo can come in different variations and is composed of transparent glass, painted copper and bronze globes. The play of colours makes this light fitting even more eye-catching!

I can visualize it as being a wonderful addition to the bachelor pad we are currently designing. Our client, has just purchased the Skorpio Keramik Round dining table also produced by Cattelan Italia and I am sure that the Apollo ceiling light will be it’s perfect match. Now to consider whether I should opt for the one with 5 or 8 spheres….

Camilleri Paris Mode 

On one of my trips to Camilleri Paris Mode, I fell in love with these beautiful statement Notre Monde mini trays. Oh how perfect they would look on my coffee table – organic swirls of colours and luxurious gold-leafing are enclosed neatly within slim edges, framing the patterns and textures like a work of art. They are both compact and versatile, and although I decided they would make lovely accessories to my coffee table, these mini trays could be placed on a console table as key holders, or as jewellery trays on a dressing table. You know how they say all  good things come in small packages and the mini trays are no exception

I love the way they look on the coffee table, I hope you do too 🙂

One Two One Interiors 

Choosing the right window dressing is no mean feat and this was the next step of our apartment design project.

For our client’s dressing room, I opted for a blackout roller blind – I chose a broken white fabric sample from the vast array of samples offered by Cortitecnia blinds exclusively found at One Two One Interiors.

I expected that trying to find the right colour and texture for the bedroom window in our client’s teenage son’s bedroom to be more difficult then it actually was!

My idea was to opt for a ‘day and night’ blind in Sean’s bedroom window. These blinds are unique, because they are made up of two layers of fabric, one layer being transparent and the other being a solid colour. The concept is that the different fabrics allow easy day and night usage. I wanted to find a dark grey fabric for the solid colour to co-ordinate with the grey and white colour scheme Sean chose for his room. Lo and behold as soon as I started leafing through the sample book, I came across the exact hue I was looking for!

This is when my face lights up – it is a feeling of joy mixed with design success, knowing that thanks to One Two One Interior’s choice of blinds and fabric samples my mission is complete.
