A visit to a penthouse in Rome
Only 900 square feet but open to a large terrace in the centre of Rome, this is an apartment that I particularly like, for its harmonious mix of antiques and iconic pieces of modern design, for the natural light coming through the large windows, for the classic wood floor and detailed ceiling, for the chosen color palette on the theme of chiaro-scuro, finally for the choice of colorful art on the wall.
The living area: white walls were chosen, as in the whole apartment, to dramatically show the black leather of Le Corbusier sofa by Cassina and the Barcelona chairs designed by Mies Van Der Rohe and produced by Knoll, the antique mirror is placed above the fireplace, not my favorite choice, since usually they only reflect boring ceilings when you are sitting down.
But let’s continue the tour…
