Come on. Join me. Jump into the portfolio of Naples-based Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva Architetti. It’s a masterclass in contemporary Italian design! Because that hotel in Capri in the previous post just wasn’t enough.

Italian holiday

There is a verve, a spark to the work of Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva Architetti, that minimalism loaded with colour and personality but remaining true to the history of the building and the site that is so very, very Italian. Perched high above the sparkling blue waters of Capri is a hotel with not just amazing views but inspiring interiors, a perfect example of this style of Italian modern minimalism.

Today’s lesson: how to go dark without going too dark. Because no one wants to live in a hole, or a cave. Studio Duggan nails it with this project with some black, dark blue and a grey-ish green.

For more, this was my latest feature on Tiffany’s work.

Why not have some blue trees growing out of your hardwood floor? Why not have legs coming out of the wall in your living room? Why not have a floor to ceiling marble clad fireplace in your bathroom? Designed by Jaime de Pablo-Romero of Madrid-based architecture and interior design firm Ynot.

What’s the common link between offices and bathrooms? None that I know of except that these chic and inspiring rooms are designed by West Hollywood based designer Adam Hunter. The link between them may be tenuous but the design is strong. Think sophisticated use of colour, richly layered with a sense of drama.
