The interior design of this apartment is the result of the proprietor’s – a young woman from a noble Sicilian family - passion for antiques, furniture from different periods, and for a variety of collectable objects. Her hobby has resulted in a vintage yet fresh style, mixing mid-century designs with 19th century prints, and putting into the blend the occasional contemporary objects in order to maintain a playful, informal look. The living area of the apartment is laid out in a series of spacious, interconnected rooms, arranged in one plane, and offering a stunning visual perspective. These ambiences (two living rooms, a dining room and an office) are delineated by bright colour schemes, yet the wide doorways enable the individual spaces to remain visually connected with each other, echoing the cool marble flooring, which flows throughout, and which is only punctuated by the occasional colourful rug. The strong Sicilian sunlight flooding through the tall windows modulates and brings to life the variety of different textures and forms, as well as colours in this interior. A wide corridor links the main living areas laterally as well as leading to the kitchen and sleeping areas. The main bedroom is, contrastingly, very uncluttered and restrained, and glows with a soft brown wall tone. The kitchen is redolent of a Sicilian country house, with a worn, rustic table, antique tiles on the wall, simple white walls, and a selection of local produce in jars or bowls. Writer Adam Butler
