lettopapamamma1This is Nadia & Federico’s rooom. They have been married for 17 years, they have two children and  live near Milan. Federico is 53 years old and works as a manager for a multinational company, he travels a lot and when he’s in Milan he comes home only late in the evening. He enjoys his room mostly in the weekend, when he can relax reading a book or the newspaper in bed. Nadia is 57, she’s a medical doctor but she retired, therefore she has now lots of free time, in which she volunteers and dedicated herself to her hobbies. She likes to spend time in her room reading, studying, making phone calls or any other thing. She likes the fact that the room is very bright( because of a large window) and has warm colours: the parquet flooring and the light green go very well together. The room is quite formal but at the same time cosy.

Federico and Nadia have very different personalities and they have both contributed into the style and character of the room, to portray they’re different life-styles I may show you they’re bedside table: Nadia’s confusing one ans Federico’s very tidy bedside table. And underneath you can see the  two owners of this roomp10102821:



letto-014This is Paolo’s room. He’s a dreamy 20 year old student who lives in Laveno, a small charming town on the Lake Maggiore, with his family. This is his tiny room that was added in the apartment when he was 6 (before he had shared a room with his two older sisters). The room is really narrow and Paolo has to keep it tidy otherwise there wouldn’t be enough space. Nonetheless this room has a lot of character because he has accumulated a lot of interesting posters, pictures, cards etc from his various life-stages: from satanic devils to cute cats 🙂  Paolo spends a lot of time in his room and, especially when he was younger, this was the most important place in the house, his little nest.  He used to study in a small desk that is at the end of the bed but now it has become too crowded: in fact he has millions of cds on it!!! In his room he loves listening to music (and he always listens to it!!) and reading books and p10101792music magazines. On the bed you can see at least 6 different covers (!!) because he likes to feel warm while asleep.

4This is Silvia’s room.  She’s a cute 20 year old girl who studies economics for art culture and communication in Bocconi. She lives in Varese with her family and this is the room she had since she was a child. As you can see from the picture it is a very classy and girly room. The iron wrought bed  is very elegant and so are the sheets and covers all in light-blue shades. On the wall she made a composition of the photos of her friends she likes the most, this gives a very homely atmosphere to the room. By looking at the many pictures we get to know most of  her memories and experiences. From this we can also feel Silvia’s outgoing and extroverted personality. The room is very bright immagine-007and spacious and decorated colourful objects. Silvia spends a lot of time in her room since she has a desk where she studies and reads. And this is her having breakfast…
