After completing the house with the main pieces, the best part comes. At least for me, because I enjoy a lot to look for small or rare objects. I also like to restore them and find the right location. I consider every home like a huge puzzle to compose in no hurry. The creativity without imagination is nothing! Attention to details is essential to obtain a nice, cozy and carefully decorated house. Never forget the power of accessories. Gather inspiration in antique stores, decor magazines and books; it’s fundamental! Sometimes, upgrading accessories can refresh the space where we live, increase functionality and provide new focal points for our interiors. The best way to get inspiration for colors, materials and textures is to travel and even wander around your own town. Something discarded by someone can end up being your treasure, if you just know what to look for.

This old clay jars were used in Southern Italy as eggplants’ and sundry tomatoes’ container. They preserved veggies in oil for the winter. I think they are fantastic and practical, as pots for wood spoons and ladles.

A blast from the past: graters for dry bread and cheese, meat grinder, a coffee maker, stove and oil lamp, brass weighing. A nice “groupage”.
