renovation and interior design for a young COUPLE’S retreat
Enter the relax zone.
The contemporary home of a young couple should reflect and match their lifestyle: a passion for traveling the world and home cuisine. Upon entering the staircase, the light colored alternation of hardwood flooring with white plaster in the steps creates a relaxed, airy feeling, complemented by the custom lighting. The lighting of the landing was studied purposely to illuminate both the upstairs distribution space between living/sleeping and the custom staircase.
Retreat and conviviality
The living room is a space to relax, complemented by a large comfortable couch, a picture wall and a map of places been and yet to see. The new addition to their family fit right in with her own mini armchair. The designer kitchen provides ample space for food prep and a cooking area in the center of the room, sided by a counter for entertainment. The darker backdrop provides for a wonderful contrast to the light-colored cabinetry. A spacious and airy bedroom with an old dresser repainted white complements an otherwise minimalistic room with a playful light blue backdrop.
Daniela’s Insider tip for this neighborhood: Sesto Fiorentino
At slightly more than 10km from Florence, Sesto Fiorentino is a lively suburb away from the hustle and bustle of the larger city, but not lacking in activities in its own right. Situated northwest of Florence, nestled under the cooler hill of Monte Morello, Sesto was one of the summer destinations of the Florentine nobility in the Renaissance, which left several villas which are touristic attractions today. Since the Eighteenth Century, Sesto was home to a prized porcelain and ceramic factory, the Manifattura di Doccia, then transitioned into Richard-Ginori and partially converted into a museum which has been through some hardship in the past few years. However, the museum has been through heavy renovation both architecturally and administratively and is expected to reopen by the end of 2022, an event not to be missed!
