— What was your inspiration to restore the villa and rent it out to holiday guests?
— Podere Palazzo exterior
— Please tell us a bit about the architecture and style of Podere Palazzo.
The interior was a challenge because we wanted a very open floor plan despite the historical and stylistic constraints imposed by the existing structure and the building regulations. I wanted to blend the old textures and materials with modern clean lines in the furnishings and then infuse everything with the colors of the nature around. I like to also use humor in my projects so there is a lot of art that is a bit irreverent and playful without ever feeling silly.”

One thing I love about the house is that looking out each window of every room is like staring into a Renaissance painting of natural beauty. Every window is a living masterpiece!”
