So, I’ve been in my current apartment for almost a year now. I really like it, but decided to do a bit of redecorating and renovation. Here I will share all of these changes.
First of all, I wanted to update my bedroom. I got a new bed and a lot of new furniture. I had the whole ensemble covered with this blue silk. What do you think? Is it maybe a bit too elegant? I want it to be.
Sometimes I think I may have gone a little too far, but other times I remind myself: YOLO.
Sleep is a wondrous thing and so I had the symbol of poppies incorporated into my new bed. Is the gold leaf a little over the top? I surely hope so!
Just a couple more snapshots of my bed. I love it so much!
In the photo below you can see my new divan, covered in matching silk. I must say, I need a couple of Murano lamps somewhere on that side of the room. It tends to be a little dark, even in daytime.
I updated my bathroom and show you just a hint of it here.
I host a lot of get togethers and parties, and my guests are always asking for billiard tables, so I enlarged my game room and bought a couple of vintage tables, chandeliers, etc. I was going for a men’s social club ambience. Do you think I achieved it? I think so.
I recently found this beautiful antique, which is an early sort of pinball table. It fits nicely in my new room.
My first guests have had a hard time remembering where the bathrooms are, so I put in an “uscita” sign, which you see below. I felt like “exit” was nicer to have in the room than “bathroom.” Now, when people ask me where the bathrooms are, I just say, “follow the exit sign.” So far it has worked pretty well. Sometimes the guests actually leave, which can also be a positive. :-)
So, that’s my new place. I bought the chandelier below, but haven’t figured out where I want to place it yet.
Ha ha! Or, as Italians write: ahahaha! April Fool’s! The pictures are all from one of the Medici villas, the Villa La Pietra in Castello! So far I am only a Medici heir in my imagination.
