Marble Love

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Can you spot my Macbook in this photo? I am back in Greece for a couple of days and if there is one interior detail I have missed is the marble floors of my childhood home. I took a few days off to recharge my batteries and rest, it is so easy to forget yourself when in the sun and the soft sea breeze. I know a lot of you want to see Athens from my eyes so stay tuned, I will take you for a walk with me very soon indeed.

Travel Tips for your Essentials : Protect your Macbook, iPhone

Friday, April 22, 2016



Some details on my coffee table while packing yesterday. My Mac and a wireless headset always follow me when I travel for more than 2 to 3 days plus a wireless mouse, while a watch and my phone are few of the essentials that go without saying. Tips for you based on experience:
1. I use a marble vinyl skin for my Mac, it protects it while looking a little bit different. Even though I have gotten tired of the specific skin I still chose to leave it until I come back home from travelling since it is offers amazing protection against scratches etc. 
2. I also use a cover for my iPhone and I m glad I do since it is so easy to drop from my bag when I rummage around to find documents, sunglasses, lip balm or hand creams or anything that is in the bottom of my bag.
3. While the headphones on the photo look great I am on the hunt for a pair that also offer noise cancellation/reduction. After having to fly several times per month I have learned to appreciate as much quiet time as I can get or even have less background noise when I am trying to listen to music or watch a movie. I haven't decided on a specific pair or brand yet, when I do I ll let you know!
4. Lots of flying companies now have reduced their requirements for on board luggage. I am also on the hunt for one that will fit new required sizes while it is portable with decent space. I am looking at Rimowa and I have to say some of their designs and materials look amazing!

Time to leave Starbucks and head to my gate, I will be on my Instagram or Snapchat (katerina.dima) if you want to connect with me next few days or follow the Blogger awards :)For now on my Snapchat you can see flights, airports and lots of hot chocolate snaps! Catch you later :)

Sneak Peek of the Living rooms new colors

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

I am back home for a a couple of days until Thursday, and while I am really busy editing the photos for the assignment I had in Milan , I managed to snap a preview photo of the new black/grey color in the living room. Originally it was a different kind of black, but I much prefer this ne grey/black version.
Next stop Friday is Helsinki for the Blog Awards and then I am flying directly to Greece for a few days. I am a little tired of planes but oh so happy to see friends and family! I will be updating the blog with my whereabouts but you can always find me on Instagram for polished shots and snapchat for unpolished ones :)

Rotonda Della Besana : Milan Design Week 2016

Saturday, April 16, 2016





This week I was shooting for an assignment in the Rotonda Della Besana in Milan during Design week 2016. While my brief was very specific and didn't leave me with a lot of time to otherwise shoot for the blog, I couldn't resist snapping along the way a few photos to show you my whereabouts.
As soon as I arrived in location I realized how much time and effort has gone into transforming the old 17th century Rotonda into a restaurant/showroom with old and new Tom Dixon products, alongside the sponsors for the show. 
The Restaurant (take a virtual tour here!) is a series of four sculptural kitchens and four radical dining halls designed by Tom Dixon to fit the 17th century Rotonda della Besana church in Milan. Arabeschi di Latte prepared the food for the 4 different kitchens that guests could enjoy while observing cutting-edge cooking techniques and the food preservation methods while they ate.
The dining areas spread between the four wings of the Rotonda so guests are encouraged to rotate through them in order to have a 4 course full meal. Every wing was designed with an element in mind, Air, Fire,Ice and Earth and the food was directly inspired by those principles.The Restaurant is a space where all of this is broken up and deconstructed Tom Dixon says, and by personal experience I can attest to the simplicity and beauty of the thought process that led to the design. On the first night a VIP dinner of 120 guests while the Rotonda was closed allowed me to enjoy myself this unique dining experience and spectacular food presentation.
While working I spent my breaks moving from one wing to another during the day, having my lunch in the kitchen of my choice. All around visitors would either make short stops to eat or drink as well, or even sit and enjoy the space while working, shop from the Tom Dixon shop and finally take a tour around the Rotonda. 
My only regret is that I didn't have time to visit this years Milan Design Show, however I am hoping to see everyone I missed during September in Paris!

See you in Milan

Monday, April 11, 2016

Boarding a plane again tonight to Milan for an assignment and I have already packed and ready for my flight plus registered myself for the Salone del Mobile for tickets and admission.I only have a few moments of peace before I drive to the airport and I love to spend them as quietly as possible with a cup of coffee and a magazine. Hopefully I will find time to go around a little bit after I am done working on my brief. I have already so many invitations from all my favorite brands and would love to talk to the designers that will be present from tomorrow at the pavilions but also, share with you sneak peeks of all the emerging trends. You can always connect with me on instagram while I am there or you can check my snaps on snapchat for daily doses of Milan and what I am to! For everyone that will also join the Salone del Mobile, see you in Milan!
