A 50m long wall functions as a backdrop for the transparent volume and […]

The architecture allows  you to contemplate the nature from the large glass […]

This old Sicilian house was restored by Arturo Montanelli and combines a rustic style with a modern approach. I’d definitely love all of these details… this house could be the perfect holiday retreat for me: stone walls, old wood furniture and a outside pool.

I love white interiors for their characteristic of reflecting light all day long! Some say it’s more difficult to take care of white pieces of furniture, but I think it is worth the trouble! :) With the popularity of minimalist homes, decorating is lending towards using neutrals again.
