This is why we’d like to share the color-infused home in Italy designed by Luca Guadagnino:
1// In a nutshell:
We know by know that creative interests do not belong just to one field, and visual talents can take their vision easily to another disciplines. Italian film director Luca Guadagnino surprised earlier this year with the calm and oscar nominated (and winning on ‘Best adapted screenplay’) film ‘Call me by your name”. At his interior décor debut, La Filanda, and home to Federico Marchetti and Kerry Olsen’s on the weekends, he integrates color at its best. It seems that the idea of renovating a former silk mill at Lake Como spurred even more his long time dream to pursuit as an interior designer.
2// What draw our attention the most:
The color layering in the kitchen area allows for a in-depth play and though the tone-on-tone application takes place within one color, to seems like multiple colors have been applied. Also, the oak paneling executed with a precise artisan work and brass paneling is quite breathtaking. And last but not least, the nautical-inspired powder room leading to the indoor pool, the emerald stone combined with pine wood, and brass hardware are otherworldly, reminding of a Wes Anderson set design.

3// The bigger picture
If you are a regular reader, you know how much we love Italian design over here. There is nothing quite similar when it comes to combine color, color blocking and using noble materials. The cultural background of great artisan tradition is seen in woodworking, leather and fabric upholstering, marble cutting and assembling; you would probably not be able to find similar combinations of design and execution on many other markets.
