I discovered Massimo Alba while looking at an interview that has been made on Elle. Sincerely I couldn’t find him online at first, and I was wondering if he made all up for the article, until I found his website:  massimoalba.com.

His sense of style can be seen not only by the number of portraits and photographs that hanging out on his wall, but also by the composition of colors and style that creates the effortless chic effect.

Under this sentence you can see one of his interesting works. Simple and of good quality.

Since I’m a house addict, I’m gonna start to talk about his fascinating home. The house was before of Leonardo da Vinci and his wife, which gives to the apartment an extra historic touch, and a massive price (of course).

As you can see it is more of a mixture of modern and old masterpieces, which is always a good choice if you want some inspiration.

“If you want to replicate this style buy modern and old pieces and art”.

More than that,  art plays a very important role in all rooms, being the center of attention and giving life to those grey canvas who are the walls.

In the bedroom the minimalist-wood style of furniture is complemented by this colossal print. Less is more sometimes, and this is a good example on how you don’t really need a huge and expensive bedhead if you know how to decorate you wall so that’s my tip:

“Buy a canvas and paint it yourself or buy a huge printable to decorate your wall instead of buying a new bedhead, you’re gonna have a light but impressive focal point on your walls “.

In this house is symmetry is important, as you can see from the second image, and not only is art considered but also well framed.

A good frame can add value and beauty to a painting, if you can’t afford real paintings you can draw sketches or print your favorite art with your home printer.

What do you think about this house? Is it your dream house? Do you think you would use the same style in yours?
