Welcome to My Maison

Welcome to My Maison

External Facade bis

>> Ok, it's not MY maison.  No, it's the maison of my dreams.  It's sort of like the Marpole Mansion from the Lady Lady! anime that comes up every now and again with fluffy pink cloud and twinkling stars around it.  This is what I felt when I went to check out the Maison Moschino (disclaimer: NO, they did not pay for this post… they just let me have a gander before it officially opened…) in Milan.  Step into… the lobby filled with lace dress lampshades, fabric clouds and sheep… me thinks they took the whole counting sheep thing for the good of getting people up to their rooms with ease…

Lobby

Lean against some poofy dresses in the resturant….

I didn't get to see all sixteen room designs, nor am I allowed to post too many pics either but I did eye-sample the….Little Red Riding Hood room… which doesn't have an ickle girl in the corner waiting to surprise you with questions about stuff being too big or small… nope, there's just a floral covered wolf on the bed to endear you to it so much, one might consider pilfering it…

Mmosch3

The Forest Room… erm… of course…

The Forest bis

…where a wise owl resides… like I said before, I prefer barn owls but at the very least this one doesn't have quite so threatening eyes…

Sleeping in a Ballgown, not unlike that ridiculous scene in an SATC episode where mille feuille tulle merges into bed… except, this is an actual bed…

The Ivy Room…

Not sure how sleep-inducing this room would be…

Plastic cobwebs in the Silhouette Room where storage is not an issue and I could well categorise my tights/leggings by colour in should I need to when travelling… (I don't feel comfortable travelling without at least a 20-pair selection at hand…)

Lock up your heart…

This, I didn't get to see but the pic is damn sweeeeeeeeeeeet…

    Sleeping will be far less satisfying now knowing I don’t have a dress bad and cake pillows in my life!

    What an utterly amazing place, suits you down to the ground, you should probably adopt it as your house. My favourite is the floral wolf, I might have to get me one of them.

    If you do ever get to live here, can I come too?! I’m quite sure there are enough bedrooms, you probably wouldn’t even notice me, but I’d be happy forever. This is literally a house made in heaven! I want a dress bed, cake pillows and a floral wolf SO badly now…

    It’s a fashionable funhouse! If I was anywhere near those lamps, I’d want to hug them….and then I’d probably get burned. I really hope I get to see this place in person someday. I refrain from touching the lamps….

    that wolf! ohhhh, i love interiors, but i spend far too much time and money on clothing to give my rented abode any real attention… so delightful, though. if i were you i’d have bedded on down and refused to move.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Dirk. After covering the French aviation market in some detail for several years, I agree that high speed rail is a major threat to short-haul business travel.
    I’d like to integrate some of social media feedback into my final write-up. Would you be okay with me using your comments?

    Home improvement projects are a fact of life for most home owners. You have the choice of employing a costly contractor or developing a little inner strength and tackling your renovation job yourself. Still, any task that involves something more than super glue and a glue gun can be somewhat daunting. If there is, however, a room in your house that you can start “practicing” on with a guaranteed degree of success, it’s your bathroom.

    I stayed in a place called Ma Maison in Ho Chi Minh City…. it was a small boutique hotel that was really nicely designed…. but it couldn’t compete with the trees around the bed or the owl clock! They’re stunning!
