Moroccan Style: East meets West

Pular para português

The oriental architecture is, in general, based on three pillars: (i) harmony, (ii) geometrical order and (iii) ornamentation. The arabic architecture is closed connected with the development of Islam. Various calligraphic and geometrical elements refer to Ala. The grand shapes, high ceilings and interior patios intend to transmit energy. The harmony of lines is easily blended with contemporary design and looks fabulous! Here is the selection I made for you! Hope you like it!

From the catwalk to your home: Missoni inspired

There is a big trend taking over on the last few years: zig zag print. Of course Missoni played a big part on that, together with ethnic coming back. Our home is intimately correlated with the fashion world and, the zig zag now lays on our sofas. I love it! And you?

Uma grande tendência está tomando conta nos últimos anos: a estampa zig zag. A marca italiana Missoni teve um papel importante nesse  movimento, junto é claro, da volta dos looks étnicos. A moda na nossa casa está intimamente ligada com o que vestimos e agora o zig zag está nos nossos sofás e tapetes. Eu adoro! E vocês?
