Travel decor is dear to my heart. I travel to see beautiful spaces before I enjoy the beautiful places. Backpacking through 3 countries in Europe in April saw me go to Geneva and Paris. The last stop was Milan, Italy- a country I fell hard for. The food, the sites,the culture, the language, the people! I want to go back again!

We booked an Airbnb in Cimiano,Milan. It was a quaint little 2 bedroom apartment that fused a minimalist modern look with contemporary hints. I loved the centerpieces in this apartment so much. So here goes the vacation rental tour.

The Entry

On opening the door, this was the sight that welcomed us . Lovely accent table with a gorgeous centerpiece  from stone and sand with flowers.

The Open Floor Living,Dining & Kitchen Area


Since I am into contemporary and modern stuff, I found this area ordinary. The contemporary modern look was just what we needed after Paris. The furniture was very IKEA, clean lines, minimalism,inexpensive perfection.  I loved the iron and glass coffee table and the amount of sun we got into the room was refreshing.

One wall had 3 shadow boxes filled with sea shells

The Bedrooms

The bedrooms here were airy and minimally furnished with fantastic closets that made me want to stay long enough to lay out my clothes.

Then The Bathroom Happened

This was bliss you guys,also it was as big as the living,dining and kitchen combined. I spent ages in the hot tub and in the shower with 6 shower outlets. I sipped wine  in the hot tub till I felt dizzy and I had to remind myself that drinking in hot tubs is not good for my life!
