This Tuscan villa is remarkably light, airy, contemporary, and entirely sudden when it comes to Italian villas. Created by architect Simone Micheli for his own family members, the three-level property was built from two separate houses.
A ground floor united prepare of residing, kitchen, and dining appreciate the height of two levels, with a loft floating in excess of the kitchen only. Bedrooms and baths reside on opposite ends of this degree. The loft over entices you with its library, video space, workout region, and concealed storage. And who wouldn’t really like an complete level roof terrace with views of Tuscany?
All of these issues make a house, yet the components that make this a house are unique and filled with persona. The white open spaces are furnished with artistic pearly curvy sofas, hide covered curvaceous dining chairs, and clover leaf glass topped tables floating above ivory egg bases.
Tangerine splashes and floating lime green shelves enliven the walls and generate a dramatic sense of depth. The soft sheen of the exquisitely crafted wood floors connects each area and requires you upstairs by means of narrow passages with an air of historical past.
Simone Micheli’s brilliant and sophisticated use of mirrors brings the Tuscan views deep in to the residence. They float over walls with colored back lights. Present day rounded cabinets dress in mirrored faces and walls of storage covered in mirror are perfectly placed to boost the Tuscan light.
