There are many nice spots in Milan, yes that's true. But by far, my favorite shop in the whole city is definitely "La Libreria del Mare"
The shop is located in Brera district; which is again my favorite area. It has a small façade which you may walk by and may not notice easily.
But once you do and step in, be sure that you will find yourself in a whole different marine world!
You will find all sorts of books related to boats, yachts, sealife, fishing; and to anything that is related to the sealife. All in different sizes, thicknesses and in different languages.
Besides, there are hundreds of beautiful boat paintings of all sizes and in different medias. You would also agree that there are many unique nautical accessories in the shop as well...
You do not have to buy anything, but please do drop by here, just to get a deep feeling of a sealife in a city that has no sea.
Yes, a great shop that will make you feel home.
Stay wet, until the next time we meet...
It is always a pleasure to work with friends, especially if they are your classmates from the university; where you struggled to learn all the interior design concepts and technical issues together.
And as the years pass by, it becomes more interesting to share the experiences everyone achieves, in the niche that they create so different than each other, although in the same sector.
So Kaan Karaoz, who established On2 Design company, is such an old and dear friend of mine. He has chosen to work in the land, as I call it, and is very much experienced in designing houses.
On2 Design is the web site where you can get more information on these lovely projects.
Some time ago we had created a concept for a trawler refit project together, which we both enjoyed a lot.
