A White House

A refined residence in Genoa, playing with abstraction and decoration, designed by architect Antonio Lagorio.  Opening its door is like entering a dream, all white inside, with the exception of a "Schiaparelli Pink" panel. 
On the white floor emerges a vintage stool upholstered in fuchsia colour.               

On the ceilings of the apartment the Liberty flowers decorations were isolated and they are now free from the old ornate background so they can float like abstracts in pure white.  Black and steel vintage furniture on total white:  Wassili Chairs by Marcel Breuer.
A Mid Century low table with mirrored top by the talented Eileen Gray.

 Two vintage chairs, a 16th Century oil painting, modern artisan glass vases add a touch of colour.

The dining room features a piece made of Oak veneer, from the 50's


The eyes wander along the corridor, with the study at the end, a sequence of sliding doors in
lacquered white wood and opaline glass.

 The definition of the space forces you to stop and look at details.

A touch of colour also in the Guests bathroom: walls are orange yellow resin.  A whimsical touch is given by the "Gnome" table by Philippe Starck for Kartell

In the guests room, the walking closet is minimalist, created only by a horizontal plain and a vertical divider.

Another neutral divider between hall and living and a low table  made of black crystal designed by Lagorio.                  
                       A minimalist approach for a white almost surreal dream House.
