Milk Decoration – Number 39 (UK Version)
Created in September 2012, the quarterly magazine MilK Decoration aims to inspire contemporary, urban and 2.0 tribes in decoration, design, travel and the art of living.
This issue is dedicated to our oldest friends, to those people sitting at the next table at the restaurant, to our friends' friends who are doing up their apartment, in short to everyone who ever asked us to describe the most inspirational interiors of the moment. Inside you will discover a quintessential selection of what is, in our humble opinion, the very best in decoration at this present moment in time.
Meet our avant-garde tribes.

Each perfectly embodies a style or an approach without ever becoming clichéd. Perhaps the best example is to be found on the cover: an incredible Parisian town house transformed by architect Federico Masotto, who achieved this result working hand in hand with the owner and a select group of artists and artisans. Full of unexpected associations, the result is a far cry from the typical parquet flooring meets moulding and fireplace combo - archi-
tectural and extremely modern, its interior with a whimsical Italian twist never fails to surprise.
