Mosaic Chic

LIFESTYLE

Mosaic Chic By Kristi Veliaj

City homes, especially in Milan, represent a place of worship, an oasis of peace where you can meet up after a long, grey day. What could be more gratifying than settling into a little corner and immersing yourself in shapes and colours? The solution to the lack of rainbows in your life is the mosaic. Applied to walls, it can reflect sunlight that penetrates through your windows in the morning, allowing you to admire a kind of homemade aurora borealis. On pavements, these little pieces of colour create optical effects and bring a sense of dimension to an otherwise boring space. There are thousands of styles and shapes to choose from and that is exactly why we want to focus on something more specific, a style inspired by Morocco, something certainly more bohemian to create your very own, very private tranquil corner. Moreover, it is always fun creating a mosaic with your own two hands, inspired by floral patterns and abstract shapes which make us cheerful. Whatever you end up choosing, remember that this decor technique offers infinite choices and is a highly flexible and adaptable option which is always custom-made.

Hope this is inspiring to you.

So take a seat with your favorite cup of something in hand, and listen to what Erica, an art and culture writer, has to say about the matter.

Dark Nails: Fall 2015 Trend

BEAUTY

Dark Nails: Fall 2015 Trend

By Michela Marra

Hello Pretty Birds,

what are the hottest colors for this season’s manicure? Black, red and dark green! We saw them on the nails of models on catwalks and backstage (examples? Antonio Marras, Emanuel Ungaro, John Galliano). They are the must have shades for your beauty case this Fall. No fear: gothic nail art works perfectly with a punk look or formal attire, as well as with everyday outfits. Try it and let us know! Here is a selection of enamels that could interest you if you want to rock the trend.
