cool places : casa talia in sicily

casa talia 2

Casa Talia, an intimate seven-room B&B hotel in the heart of Unesco-protected Modica, is the brainchild of two Milanese designers – who have used the hotel as a showcase for their classy stylings. Modern features complement a layout inspired by Sicily’s rich cultural past, and the result is a laid-back retreat in the midst of the island’s sun-baked countryside.

happy friday

project rustic provence chic home severine piller design

I almost finished a project I was working on for the past 2 months and so so happy with the result (and thrilled clients!), I can’t wait to share before/after pictures with you! I’m off to the sea this weekend (thank God from friends with a house in Liguria) to rest, relax, drink cocktails and have a good time.

Here are 3 things making me happy…

cool places : 10 corso como in milan

10 corso como milano 1

It’s not a new one but it is definitely one of my favorite spots in Milan! The bookstore is the best in town, the art gallery can be visited for free and the patio downstairs is the perfect spot to sip on an Aperol Spritz during happy Hour…

happy friday

blooming magnolia

Spring is finally here and I’m really happy go see that plants and trees are blooming everywhere. My parents came to visit early this week and my brother is arriving tonight so this week was spent squeezing work in, sleeping 9 hours every night (to recover from the Marrakesh Marathon), preparing for client meetings next week and looking forward to the weekend!

Here are 3 things making me happy:

Blooming magnolias

The prettiest rug in Marrakesh last week…

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
