In 1919 an art school was formed in Germany: this school would have a profound influence on art and interior design in the following century. That school was called Bauhaus (name derived from the union of German words Bau construction and Haus home).

If you think Scandinavia is the home of design, you’re not mistaken. But if you think Finland has a marginal role, well, this time you’re wrong!
Finland not only gave birth to Alvar Aalto but it is also the real home of design: it is not only Artek, the Finnish design company founded in 1935 by Alvar and Aino Aalto, it’s Iittala, Marimekko, Arabia, Aarikka, Jopo… Design comes in daily and you will easily find Iittala glasses in bars and restaurants, as well as napkins and paper glasses of Marimekko offered in Finnair flights. In the end, the sense of design is just that, in everyday life!

“In our digital times, a whole world of lifestyles is just a click away. Social networks do the spadework, clearing the ground leaving only objects of desire as the well-honed online consumer becomes the artistic director and designer of his/her interior.
Homemakers indulge in a form of decorative exhibitionism and with transparency in every shape, size and form showcase their significant objects in display cases or on shelves. Walls show off these new collectors’ juxtaposed accumulation of pictures, or their modern-day take on decorative plates; still lifes are arranged as if posing to have their photo taken, ready to be posted on Instagram; and light transforms volumes in a dramatic and theatrical approach to interiors that brings a touch of magic back into everyday life. Click to say you “like” it and make sure to share.”. “

Furnishing the walls with the frames and photos is not only an essential element of interior design: furnishing with paintings, posters or photos is often a way to finish the decoration of the walls, to illuminate a dark corner, to give character to a furniture in the entrance or to send a message of love in the nursery of the newborn or on the headboard of your double bed.
Although decorating walls with the frames seems simple, if you want a nice composition different from classic and regular alignments (three pictures of the same size in a row, for example), you must take into account some rules.
