Crisp mornings, shorter days and yellow leaves falling from the trees call for autumn; the season were it is mandatory to lit candles, sip endless cups of hot tea and cuddle in bed under the warm blankets. I am sure that for many of you, like me, are already a bit nostalgic of the long daylight of summer days. Nevertheless, we can try to enjoy this new of season as best as we can. Personally, I enjoy cooking anything with the local Swedish mushrooms called "kantarelli", creamy risotto, pasta sauce, with toasted bread...you name it! Secondly, of course, I enjoy decorating our apartment with the autumn colours, so I change the cushion covers, the tablecloth and the bed linens. They are small budget-friendly changes but if you would like to change more, I hope you will like the mood boards that I have pulled together and that you will find the following steps useful to identify your style.

One of the greatest interior design challenge nowadays, I think is cleaver solutions for small places. With so many families or couples living in the city centre in very small apartments, designers are asked to come up with smart ideas to provide the largest amount of storage and a comfortable living for their customers. I personally lived in different European cities and always found very small apartments to share with other tenants. While I was at Salone del Mobile this year, I've seen some incredible solutions that will allow you to save space and decor a small apartment, without giving up a stylish design.
