I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the hexagonal shape is a real trend!! Mostly in tiles, carpets but also in objects and lightings hexagon is here to stay! For me it goes together with the mid-century style that is very hot that period but we find it also in every style as I see. It’s shape is so easy to be put and create a variety of designs that inspires a lot of designers and companies. Here I have only some examples of hexagon inspired spaces but if you search it more you’ll be amazed.

House in Capri

House_in_Capri_00After a long rainy week here in Athens, I have again a feeling for summer houses and relaxing refuges! That’s a great opportunity for this amazing villa in Capri, summer residence of  architect and designer Matteo Thun.

Overlooking the Marina Piccola and surrounded by a lemon tree garden the outdoor space is magical and the view just breathtaking! And what can I say about the interior..the tiles on the walls are fantastic! Clean, neutral space with some bold touches of colour, the murano chandellier makes the perfect match and the outdoor dinning table is unique!

No more words, let the pictures talk…

Blue tiles like summer!

Made a mano

Made a mano, beautiful tiles

Blue tiles in vintage patterns reminds me of the aegean see! That’s why I have it in my mind with summer feelings, I don’t know.. The truth is that in summer cottages in combination with white, bright wood and some vintage touch give a beautiful result!! The patterns are numerous, from retro style that reminds Portuguese tiles or Instanbul something..to geometric schemes that makes it more modern, you can’t choose really! At least I couldn’t..I would like all of them in my house!
