Classic Urban Apartment
In partnership with Arch. Mariapia Alboni
Renovation and interior design project in classic style of the entrance and living room of a large apartment in an ancient building in the historic city centre of Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy. On a checkered floor of red Verona marble and Biancone marble, the wall coverings have been designed to emphasize the classic partitions with arches and columns and hand-lacquered wood paneling in different shades. A custom designed wall cabinet stands out between the two large windows, while at the center of a side wall there is a simple but elegant fireplace that focuses the perspective. The partition of the walls emphasizes the valuable period paintings. The colors chosen between the light cream and a beautiful peach tone characterize all the tapestries, as well as the silk velvet upholstery sofa that acts as a counterpoint to the two modern ivory leather armchairs by Le Corbusier. The ceilings are decorated with geometric plaster frames that emphasize the centrality of the Murano glass chandelier. In the atrium, an elegant oval crystal ceiling light fits into a beautiful oval frame that encloses the background in gold leaves, creating a truly important entrance, despite its small size.
