It’s been a busy day today and I wouldn’t mind getting away from it all for a few days…Fancy Italy? who doesn’t! Come and take a look at this wonderful B&B but be warned it will give you serious holiday envy!
This B&B close to Parma (Italy) is the beautiful home of Carla Soffritti & Stefano Castelluccio.
A house in the woods, 1100 hectares of trees and meadows. Eco friendly with everything sourced locally.The “no waste” rule mean they have given second hand objects and production waste a new function and a high-level aesthetic.Unmatched drawers have taken on new life by becoming book shelves, the door of an old wardrobe today is now a bathroom mirror, and part of a discarded blackboard serves as the front panel of the stove hood…Fancy staying there? I do, forever!
If you are looking for a weekend getaway then seek no further… Maison Rika is the brainchild of Swedish fashion designer Uirika Lundgren. The guesthouse houses her shop on the ground floor and is located at the 9 Straatjes (one of the most amazing shopping places in Amsterdam) overlooking the Herengracht canal. Furnished and decorated by Ulrika Lundgren herself, the three storey townhouse is a mix of modern and vintage finds, black painted floors, copper basins and unique art pieces by Sang Ming and John Derian.
