An ancient history, able to live again in the present. In the charm of the generous spaces, of the materials of the area, of the decorated and frescoed ceilings that mingle with contemporary revisitations, among art photographs and design pieces of excellence. In Borgo San Frediano, a Florentine district of the Oltrarno elected among the coolest in the world, made up of narrow streets and small artisan stores that intertwine with new bars, boutiques, bistros and restaurants, Pierattelli Architetture breathes new life into a 240-square-meter apartment with a restyling devoted to a sense of elegant and functional, capable of reflecting both the identity and eclecticism of the place.
Warm, bold colors, bespoke handcrafted solutions and natural materials define spacious and bright spaces, where the neutral color tones of the walls contrast with the nuances of the painted ceilings.
The apartment tells a long story through important artistic pre-existences, such as coffered ceilings and frescoes that add value to the entire house. The home features a large living area, distinguished by a living room interconnected to the kitchen and dining room, and a more secluded sleeping area.
