I am not a fan of bold colors in the interior world. BUT I do make exceptions with Italian Design. Well, I have a thing with everything Italian anyhow (and I can’t wait to visit the Salone in a few days). No wonder I had to share the following eclectic project taken care of by Prada‘s retail architect Roberto Baciocchi within these 10th century stone walls. That’s already a pretty interesting introduction, right?
Furniture pieces from the 1950s, wall paintings done by an artist friend and a very eclectic mix, are the leitmotiv throughout a home where the architect manages to create spaces that juxtaposes ancient architecture with modern pieces in a very confident way. That’s what I admire most here in a time where many people adjust their instagram feed to get as many likes as possible, and authentic style has become a rara avis.
The kitchen tuns out a real surprise with a rather archaic look combined with a sleek glass cabinet. It’s refreshing to see a different taste, color palette and you can see more images at the The New York Times. G, x
