iny and classy: the apartment purposely renovated for a young Milanese marketing manager. This home reflects her personality. Modern, practical and decorated with elegant details, classic pieces which instantly capture your attention. We’re in a small tree lined square filled with bicycles, right in the centre of Milan, in a building which dates from the 40s, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo. The hustle and bustle of the city contrasts sharply with this serene space, where even a super dynamic manager can truly relax.
In the foreground, large comfy sofas by Minotti take centre stage in this multifunctional living room. Modern, the modular entertainment unit by Porro, separates living room from kitchen. In the background, the wall which joins entrance to bedroom (to the right). Feature wall behind Zenit bookcase by Rimadesio: wooden look wallpaper by Armani Casa.
The first thing our young owner asked the team at Salvioni Design Solutions, who oversaw the interior design project, was to have large cozy sofas in the living room. She doesn’t have much time to enjoy them, but those few hours have to be perfect. Comfort is paramount, and design precision was used to zone different areas for entrance, dining room and kitchen, preserving a feeling of harmony.
The bedroom is rather small, however it was possible to fit a romantic armchair next to the window and a mirror simply resting on the back wall (Modà Collection). The Sanya bed with a tufted headboard by Flou and opposite, the glossy lacquered fronts of the New Entry wardrobe by Poliform reflect the light.
In this small multifunctional living room every little detail counts, as it’s generally the rule where space is at a premium. Here, devil is in the detail: furniture placement is planned to the last inch, alternating different materials, a harmonious colour palette and a few bold pieces, which add contrast. For the owner’s delight, the great achievement of this small project was to be so perfect yet so simple.
