APARTMENT IN ROME




I just had to share this apartment with you.

When I read the caption " Rome wasn't built in a day: Neither was Achille Salvagni's Apartment" from the Interior Design Magazine, I just had to have a closer look.

Mismatching different styles from different era's is done beautifully in this apartment, but Salvagni himself is never quite satisfied with how things are in his own apartment and constantly has the urge to change things around ....

With works from Gio Ponti and Paolo Buffa being present, Salvagni also has pieces from his own  limited edition collection that he has designed for Maison Gerard in New York, also scattered throughout the apartment.

Noble material, such as bronze, marble, alabaster and onyx predominate.
