Welcome to my world - a blend of passion, taste, and old-world traditions.

Benvenuti nel mio mondo - un mischio di passione, gusto e vecchie tradizioni.

I have a passion for strong and stylish kitchen towels. When one cooks a great deal like me, it is very important to have absorbent towels. For absorbency, I use dish towels consisting of a waffle or basket weave. Apart from their obvious use, dish towels can also enhance the decor of any kitchen or express a theme. I create my own designs.

As with any theme decor, if not properly done, it can make a kitchen look garish.  

Do not overdue.

Beach Theme Decor


Whether you are looking to decorate a summer cottage or a year round home with the beach theme, the kitchen is a perfect place to start. Use nautical colors – such as tan, yellow, navy, and white color scheme. A tiny splash of red and orange can also be added for a pop of color. Display a set of nautical themed dishes, seashells in a jar and kitchen towels.

Food and Drink
The kitchen is where the food is made, so favorite foods and drinks are often good subjects for kitchen decor.

Due to the increasing popularity of wine appreciation, homeowners are adding wine theme decor to their kitchens.  
Natural rustic materials such as stone and Tuscan paint colors like oatmeal, terra cotta, warm yellow compliment a wine theme kitchen decor. 

When choosing wine theme kitchen accessories, keep it simple – few ceramics, a decorative bottle and some kitchen towels. You want your kitchen to look classy and chic and not over the top. If done well, the kitchen should resemble a rural country home rather than a wine store.

These martini kitchen towels are great hanging in the kitchen or by the pool bar.

A coffee lover might paint the kitchen walls in an appealing shade of caffe' latte, display wall decor that features vintage coffee ads, and hang kitchen towels embroidered with  coffee cups. 

Favorite foods are another good source of inspiration. Citrus fruits in their fresh colors, cheery red and green apples, ripe tomatoes and red and green peppers are great choices.
