Salone Del Mobile and Milano Design Week make a sought after international event that inspires all those that are actively involved in Interior Design and greatly interests all that love home trends and innovations. So, am I writing this to make you jealous? Yes... No! of course not ;) I'm writing to let you know that I will report from there as 'live' as possible, because I sincerely love to share my design discoveries with all those those that are interested in knowing more. So, if you want to have an idea of what the fuss is about, make sure to follow my Instagram and Facebook pages. I can assure you'll fall in love with Milano and will want to be there too, next year.
