Do you like Renzo Mongiardino style?

If you do… then you must also like Studio Peregalli style.

As the Architectural Digest  magazine in 2012 AD100 list says:
“Makers of interiors that look and feel centuries old, Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli are proper heirs to the time-traveling spirit of their late mentor, Renzo Mongiardino. “Rigor with imagination” is how Peregalli describes the Milan firm’s oeuvre, captured in the 2011 monograph The Invention of the Past (…)  the business partners employ traditionally trained Italian artisans for their ravishing mise-en-scènes (…)”

The iconic architect and interior designer Renzo Mongiardino, the greatest of Italian decorators, created theatrical, dreaming interiors and Roberto Peregalli is dedicated to carry on the master's work, adding his personal style to it.

A Neoclassical dining room with decorations on the walls, trompe-l’œil over the doors , ancient Asian sculptures and paintings and a large 1700 Florentine table.
The book “L’invenzione del passato” as in the Italian edition, narrates through gorgeous images, drawings and sketches many projects of Studio Peregalli around the world.

In Milan, the library of a collector features a painted ceiling, Turkish rugs, exotic throws and original ivory colored doors that create the structure of the room.

Enchanting simple room in a country house with pale greens, ochre, greys, typical of the beginning of Eighteenth-Century.  The antique settee, upholstered in a plum velvet creates a dramatic contrast.

A large living room with the same contrast of pale hues and vivid colors like the emerald green sofa and the touch of rusty red on the other sofa, both colors recalling the ones of the Indian diptych on the wall.  Note the stunning chandelier!

An entryway for a client in Paris, with a unique shape and stunning wallpaper, the front door color and the nail head decoration is another important visual element, not to mention the Versailles style oak  floor.
In the book the architects add that every small element, every single detail is equally important, if not perfect, like a waterfall, they will ruin the whole effect… so true!

In Morocco a covered patio with a Moorish arch leading to the library has graphic black and white tiles, grey blue walls and a bold turquoise color for the centerpiece, a Moroccan fountain.

A study with a myriad of books, apparently messy but instead quite orderly, a very well lived room  as it was and still is often tradition in  aristocratic or old money European families, where furniture, objects, memories are kept, with  each generation adding more layers.

In Bologna a vast bathroom where the architects decided to make the original old floor a focal point.

I like to end with an extraordinary image of a party installation by Studio Peregalli, they recreated the atmosphere of the Renaissance time, with the glow of hundreds of candles  and rich antique Persian rugs flowing from the arches above. It must have been a magic soirée.

©2011 Brillante Interiors writes about new trends, timeless decor, iconic pieces, design ideas, or at times just musing about "a certain Italian way of doing things".

If I had the library and the art, I may never leave the room. Masters copying masters.

I love Mongiardino and was not familiar with Studio Peregalli.
The Paris door is amazing as is the Bologna bath, but the trompe Portugese tile work took my breath away! Wonderful post Albarosa!
