First of all, I apologize it has taken me so long between one post and another lately… last weeks have been pretty crazy, and I’ve been really busy with other major projects I will be shortly sharing with you all!
Today I would love to share some ideas about decorating the nursery… with striped walls!
I’ve always been thinking that a striped wall can add a special allure to the whole room, like a romantic mood if it comes in pastel colors or a funky vibe if it features bright and pop colors. We’re obviously talking about a … Read more…
As promised, I’m showing today how I decided to decorate the walls in my daughter’s nursery… with Disney characters and lots of bright colors!! At first, my idea was to go for mural paintings directly, realized with acrylics colors on the bare walls. But then I thought that maybe painting on canvases would be a better idea, first because I’m more confident with oil colors (they dry much slower, you are allowed to work much calmer) and then also because I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of leaving my paintings behind one day, if we will perhaps move … Read more…
I’ve been thinking over a cardboard box for Minnie for a few months now, and I’ve been collecting ideas and inspirations for quite a while. Why have I not started making her my own DIY version yet?

Annie Leibovitz is one of the most creative and talented photographers alive. When you see one of her shots you can’t help feeling like you’re part of the scene too, and in my opinion this is the greatest gift of all for an artist.
Enchanting the spectator so as to make him feel part of the masterpiece himself.
Since 2007, Annie has been collaborating with Disney in a series of ads to promote Disney Parks “Year of a Million Dreams”. The portraits in this series feature Hollywood celebs in Disney fairy tale scenes… and they’re AMAZING!!!
I know it’s a long poem. But it’s BEAUTIFUL. I’ve known it for a while now, but I can’t help feeling a tiny tear watering my eyes anytime I read it.
These words have the power to capture what a mother really is, and doesn’t matter whether you’re a mom or not yet… you are a always a daughter. Enjoy it!
Unfortunately, even if I made some online research, I could not find the original source, nor the author. If anyone of you, dear readers, knows this poem and could tell me a bit more about its author or its … Read more…
