Oozing with bright, cheerful vibes, this revamped apartment captures the nostalgia of hanging out at your cool Grandmother’s house.

Named Le Temps Retrouvé, which translates to “time regained” or “the past recaptured,” Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa of local studio Marcante-Testa have envisioned this lovely home to be “a repository of the most intimate facets of people and their memory.”

Located in the center of Milan, Italy, the 1,300-square-feet apartment has been lightly renovated on a tight schedule to improve spatial perception, as well as add character.

The airy abode features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and gorgeous French windows that look out to trees in the internal courtyards.

Marcante-Testa has integrated materials like wicker headboards, linen-upholstered seats, straw chairs, accessorized dividers, colorful wallpaper with botanical prints, and splashes of candy-toned greens and pinks to create a modern rendition of “grandma’s house.” 



Although the home is nestled in a busy city, it has the pleasure of overlooking a peaceful internal garden. Here is a verdant tree in the middle of the courtyard on the property.
