Spaziorossanaorlandi

I hope you had a nice weekend…we had a wonderful time…we have been very lucky with the weather these last two weeks…feels like summer… so we've been out in the sun…enjoying it while it lasts I guess…and to bring some more summer feel to your home… the next stop on our world tour is Italy… my favorite country in Europe… fell in love with Rome… but today is all about Milan…another beautiful city in Italy I still have to visit… and will make sure to visit in the future… especially after reading  about  this famous store Kris from Colorstripes is telling us about today…{ps. don't forget to pay a visit to Kris her blog, it's truly different and I love it}
"Spazio Rossana Orlandi
is a multifaceted and fascinating  gallery-shop situated in old converted tie factory,in Milan. It’s a home wares store, design gallery and fashion boutique, all in one. Owner Rossana has incredible capacity to pick such a variety of products and make them all fit together perfectly. Piet Hein Eek’s chairs, industrial lamp Jielde, Lisa Stickley’s tea towels, old terracotta chimneys,Kiki Van Eijk’s bottled carafe, airplane propellers and Anne Claire Petit’s crochet toys seam to be the part of the same fairy tale.

Serene and calm atmosphere of this place together with a kindness of  staff always remind me that design should be emotional,authentic and fun as well as functional. Stepping out into the real world could be cruel, so I suggest a break, just two steps behind the corner there is a small, cosy restaurant from the same owner called ’Pane & Acqua’(bread & water).
Spaziorossanaorlandi3
Designed by architect Paola Navone, it follows the spirit of Spazio, in fact all furniture and tableware are borrowed from the shop and it’s continually updated  so that you can actually by the coffee cup, dinner fork or even the clock!"
