This apartment, photographed by the extraordinary Giorgio Possenti, featuring a premium DUX bed, has the most serene palette and textures. I love the wall colors, and the brown ceiling, it’s divine! The mix of materials and shapes, soothing colors, and playful touches are so cleverly orchestrated. It’s important to note that it’s a gallery, so it’s not a real apartment that is 100% livable – but the overall takeaway from my perspective is how personal touches, art, harmonious color, handmade objects, natural materials, playfulness, plenty of light sources, and interesting objects can only serve to amplify any home design – all things I’ve been writing about in my books and here on my blog for 16 years – it’s what I stood by, stand by, and will always believe the most and what caused me to become an interior designer in the first place – the power interiors has over our health and well-being, how productive we are in life (or not) and how welcome we can make people feel in our homes.
SENSORY DESIGN – Start studying it, think about it, look out for it… It’s only going to get hotter.
I must add that I am a huge lover of the color green in all of its tints and tones, so I really enjoy seeing so much of it in this space.
