A young couple with two children, a two-level apartment in a newly renovated historical building. The desire to create a home with a classic, almost bourgeois spirit, but with an original twist that reveals the owner’s love for art, design, and travels. On the ground floor, a light-weight bookcase divides the entrance from the living area where the long Ghost sofa by Gervasoni is the hero piece, together with the Portofino lamp by Servomuto, entirely handmade in Italy and the large carpet of the Tres Collection of Nanimarquina. In the dining area, a magnificent painting by the homeowners’ friend Sandro Sanna, is the background of the Desalto table, whose ceramic top is warmed by the woven straw of the Thonet style chairs. The Atelier Areti chandelier, made of brass and blown glass, crowns the space.
On the other side, two symmetrical doors lead respectively to the guest bathroom and to the first floor, through the steep staircase with a custom-made handrail-sculpture. The large kitchen, with stone effect flooring from Lea Ceramiche's Scraps Collection, consists of an area equipped with a large cooking island to accommodate guests in an informal way and a small breakfast corner dedicated to the family. The color palette, entirely played on cold colors such as gray, petrol blue, sage green, is warmed by natural materials such as iroko wood and stone, small brass details, textured fabrics, and visible grain custom-made furniture.
