The black-and-white photographs were taken while Chiaratti was on her honeymoon in Thailand.
Chiaratti uses these quaint porcelain vintage milk jugs to hold fresh-cut fuchsia roses.
In the kitchen, wall shelves display some of Chiaratti's brightly colored crockery.
In the dining room, mismatched chairs emphasize the inviting and colorful style of the apartment. Eames chairs are coupled with various IKEA chairs in different colors and styles. The large patterned fabric behind the dining table is a fun and inexpensive way to bring color and pattern into the space.

On the dining room table, a pale blue vintage enamel water pitcher filled with fresh cut roses ties in beautifully with the bright colors on the wall.
Chiaratti loves creating interesting and fun items for her home. This paper "Welcome" sign above the guest bed is another of her projects.
Chiaratti's love for crocheting was inspired by two women she met at a garage sale in Belgium: Yvonne, the face behind the blog Yvestown, and Ingrid, the founder of Wood & Wool Stool. She knew she possessed a creative streak and talent with a set of crochet needles, so she began working on her first cushion, followed by a blanket. When people started commenting on her crochet works, she opened up an Etsy shop. “Crocheting is a passion,” Chiaratti says. “It is something that relaxes me … sometimes a little too much!”
Chiaratti has seen quite a bit of interest in her crochet works, and was contacted by the wool supplier Coats Cucirini to design and produce items for Abilmente, the most important craft fair in Vicenza, Italy.
