Decor Girl has been selected again to be part of the esteemed group of design and lifestyle publications to be part of a Modenus BlogTour. This time we are headed to Milan for Salone Internazionale del Mobile, which is THE home furnishings, kitchen and bathroom exhibition in Europe and watched by the entire world.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?We are going to uncover the latest and greatest of European and Italian design for the home. Salone International Mobile is considered the benchmark for home design and we are going to be right in the heart of it to bring you, our readers, the future directions in home, furnishings, lighting, kitchen and bathroom design.
Maybe you should wait a few weeks before committing to any design project, no need to invest in the kitchen of yesterday!
WHERE ARE WE GOING? Next week eleven of us will start our cultural immersion tour in Venice for a couple of days to indoctrinate us into all things Italian and then on to Milan for the home furnishing show of shows.
This show is so big, travel guides warn tourists this is not the time of year to go to Milan – because the city is overrun with design people for this show.
WHO IS GOING? Selected editors and publishers of top design blogs who are like a sponge with new information have been selected to be your ambassadors of what’s new, cool and what’s oh so yesterday. Like before there are people I’ve met or know via social media, and those I’m thrilled to get to know. Clockwise after me:
- Pamela Copeman of Posh Palettes Blog
- Krista Nye Schwartz and Tami Ramsay of CLOTH & KIND
- Eric Schimelpfenig of SketchThis.Net
- Robin Plaskoff Horton of Urban Gardens
- Carmen Maria Natschke of The Decorating Diva
- Joann Kandrac and Kelly Kole of Kandrac Kole
- Holly Hollingsworth Phillips of The English Room
- Tamara Matthews Stephenson of Nest by Tamara

Non Parlo ItalianoThough I don’t speak Italian, I do speak Ferrari, a little Maserati, Lamborghini and a slight bit of Alfa Romeo and Pagani. So I’m thrilled to have Eric, one of my automotive buddies, as part of the tour. Hey, it is all design related.
If you would like to join in the fun on the virtual level please watch Twitter and Instagram for the hashtag #BlogTourMilan. Provided Italian WiFi doesn’t get lost in translation we’ll be updating our social media channels as we go. DecorGirl.net will be on hiatus next April 4- 13 while we are sleuthing design through Italy. Ciao!
