Elle Decor apartment


This time...again? you would say... we travel virtually to Milan where a stunning project by Italian Elle Decor magazine of an installation of a complete apartment, 13 rooms on two levels, from the entrance hall to the garage and the laundry has taken the space of all the eight huge windows at La Rinascente, the biggest department store in Piazza del Duomo, Milan.
A project by the famous Interior design magazine to mark the opening of the new department of Casa (Home) which will take a whole floor at the store.
The extraordinary installation by Elisa Ossino and Andrea Garuti creates the illusion of a real house, since they mixed real pieces of furniture with photographs of objects and people on the scale 1:1 where he sets the table, she takes a nap, the child plays, a real life representation of a house completed with sounds of birds on the terrace, an alarm clock in the bedroom, a washer running in the laundry.

The garage...is this a Mini?
I would have preferred to see a Fiat convertible 500, but who am I to judge?

Tulip, the gorgeous statement chair designed by Marcel Wanders for Cappellini is also on display.

The interesting project by Elle Decor was to represent a house where you live well, because
a good house is a great part of a good life.
I can't agree more!
