How Did CASA CABANA Come to Be?

The author of the book, Martina Mondadori is the founder and editor of cult interiors magazine Cabana. She grew up in Milan, where her father was chairman of one of Italy’s biggest publishing houses. After an early career in publishing and luxury branding, she launched the limited-edition designer magazine Cabana in 2014.

So is CASA CABANA a Decorating Book?

Yes, it is indeed a visual feast with incredibly stylish interiors and home decorating, but it’s so much more.

You’ll also find entertaining ideas as well as Italian recipes.

The tablescapes and place settings are unlike any you’ll see elsewhere. Tablecloths, china, glasses, and a mix of patterns keep the mood high volume and joyous.

About Those Tablescapes…

While my own color style is decidedly pale, I cannot deny the sophistication! Plus, there are more subtle moments. Just look at this more subdued mix:

More quiet sophistication here (and do ignore my ugly boots which sneaked into the shot):

Decorating With Color

Cabana style is about adding character and spirit, not perfection and the expected! Just listen to Martina speak to India Hicks about the beauty of imperfection (spoiler alert: India is hilarious!!!).

CASA CABANA is a Trip!
