Rustic in Italy

Posted on Tue, 7 Aug 2012 by KiM

A huge thanks to Deb who sent us a link to an Italian magazine “Le case di Elixìr“. They feature gorgeous homes in several styles they call shabby chic, meltin’ pot, classic and contemporary. I am most definitively drawn to the rustic, “shabby chic” homes in Italy that speak of history. I found one that made my heart melt. This is how I always imagined living in Italy (it’s been a dream of mine forever, as my mom is Italian), in a rustic villa with stone/brick walls and floors and wooden beams, with bits of modern furnishings thrown in for shock factor. This villa is going to haunt me (delightfully) for a long time.

Tracey says:

Even though this is totally not my style, I love the authentic charm of this place. I can smell the bread baking from here.

Kate says:

I love this place, but that dining room is no place for a long tailed cat!

Céline says:

Ahhhh… what a treat to look at these pictures!

I love it! this is their website:
I saw this "locanda" (=inn) and restaurant years ago in another Italian magazine, AD.

Melanie says:

Don't wake me, I'm having the most amazing dream where this place is mine…at least for the summer:) And that chandeliere?! Stunning.
