CASA_upstairs.

Upstairs we first meet what I call “Male’s Room”.

The sofas: I did like the shape of Vlady’s ones but not the texture, so I dyed few hemp linen bed in charcoal grey and made a new dress for them. I actually started with a toile, then made the paper pattern and then sewing. At that time I asked a seamstress to help me with the finishing.

On the floor, there is my cashmere patchwork blanket: I made it a long time ago with the washing trials of a beautiful 1/16 cashmere I took from a company I was working for, still love it!

The light is coming from antique shop in Antwerp, one of the best places ever to buy vintage furnitures.

All┬álibraries are made with used bricklayers boards. Those ones were part of Vlady’s dad garage and they are now so functional.

The oil can is one of the objects I will never get rid of. It was from my daddy’s factory and he gave it to me.

At the top of the old wooden stairs, our nestle: open space bedroom. The wardrobe was again from an old auntie, I first painted it in a cream color, then once we moved here I started to be obsessed with mint green.

Bedside tables are still in cream color, as I painted them years ago when moved to Veneto. All linen are from the family dowry, I actually made duvet covers to be more comfortable.

I do love to lay on the bed admiring the architecture of this house!

Here is another drawer from the aunties collection, mixed with vintage colorful kindergarten chairs.

Love, actually.
