ancient to modern, in salento italy.

when this italian architect/designer couple were searching for a vacation home, away from their hectic home base of milan italy, they headed southeast, to salento, which some call the high heel in italy's boot...
at one time a 17th century oil mill, complete with original stone floors, walls and those amazing arches, the architect couple of ludovica serafini and roberto palombo knew the lines were there, and what they could do with them...

all of the washed out whites, the natural color palette introductions to each and every space leaves this modern vacation home sunny, warm and welcoming. another really great aspect of this article, which was featured on dwell, here, is that as designers, the couple also designed much of the furniture and you can read about each piece or where to find them for yourselves.

i LOVE this space. it is where i'll place my self today, imaginatively, as i day dream among freezing cold temperatures and a coating of snow on the ground. enjoy!
