An Italian interior that embodies so much beauty—you just can't help but stare.
The details are mesmerizing...a perfect combination of past craftsmanship and artistry, combined with carefully chosen, modern pieces of a smart nature. I love how the ornate and refined walls, ceilings and doors, perfectly envelope the spaces. It's no wonder the owners took the more simplistic approach in furnishing their space—I feel that much more detail would have been too much!
I believe that even the exquisite hanging chandeliers are original to the home—isn't that one in the kitchen majestic? I also really enjoy the large mirror that reflects the gentle, natural light, and helps to make the space feel much more open and spacious. (I am definitely going to do this one day) Even the clean, simplistic faucet is perfect. Don't you find the feeling of this place to be so rich and warm?...the organic arrangements, tousled throws, and drapey, crinkled linens, remind us that the look of a space is just as important as the ease of living. Can you imagine walking through here, or for that matter, living here?
