A small house in a very picturesque location on the shore of the warm sea. Green meadows, bright sun, azure sky. An indescribable scent of blooming fruit trees. Arts, music, architecture and ancient traditions. All this is Italy. The beautiful Italy leaving no one indifferent. Italian style in architecture and interior design is extremely versatile. Each province of this sunny country has its own traditional features of construction and decoration of houses. This chic, buildings abounding with luxury, neighboring simple farmhouses. Today the paraded pomp and wealth is attracting fewer admiring glances from Italians. Cozy and comfortable environment in a modern home where everything is subordinated to the functionality rules is much more important for them.
We propose to consider one of the projects of a country house in Italy.
Designers choose country style with rustic elements to work on. Different types of masonry (brick and rubble) and plaster were used for facing of the outside of the house. They are well combined in the design of the facade. A small area in front of the house is decorated with lawn, plant compositions in floor vases and green bushes:
Arched openings – the legacy of Roman architecture – are complemented by modern glazing techniques, not violating the harmony.
A pond is an indispensable condition for a good rest in the open air in an Italian patio. Since the designers took the principle of simplicity as the basis of the project, the pool in the courtyard has a simple rectangular shape.
Natural decoration materials, wooden furniture, wrought iron elements were chosen to decorate the interior of the house in accordance with rural traditions. Everything in this house emphasizes the cozy simplicity:
A method of mixing textured plaster with stone masonry was chosen for wall finishing. This is a very popular technique in the Italian style. Such deliberate roughness of the walls emphasizes the elegance of other decorative elements. Note the thin carpet imitating the skin of an animal, and elegant floor lamps:
Ceiling beams of untreated wood rhyme with flooring and fill the room with natural warmth. Beveled roof ceilings are balanced with decorative beams. This ceiling design can be used for placing lights or decorations on it:
Wrought iron spiral staircase draws attention with its austerity and elegance. The absence of elaborately carved elements makes it the most suitable to the situation:
Modern furniture and rough wooden logs, used as decor items and furniture co-exist perfectly in the interior of the Italian house:
The workplace is also originally designed. Instead of traditional desks and lockers with shelves, a simple bookcase with tops on the wall was constructed. It perfectly fits into the overall setting and makes it lighter:
Along with demonstrative brutality of some elements, elegant furniture is used in the interior. Its elegance is stressed by the flooring imitating natural stone tiles:
An Italian house is the embodiment of light and warmth. So, the designers and decorators chose very light colors for finishings: white, light gray, light brown – in a country house in Italy. Dark details set off the colors and prevent the interior from looking boring and monotonous:
This color scheme conveys the solar atmosphere of the Italian climate and makes the room more spacious.
In addition to white and gray, yellowish shades of natural wood are intertwined harmoniously in the interior. A texture of wood is preserved in the furniture made of solid wood. The authentic Italian village life is recreated in this way:
Gruff wooden surfaces are organically complemented by modern glossy white coatings and modern appliances in steel gray tones:
White tableware in the kitchen also has this simplicity of form and decoration. The color of the tableware mixes well with natural wood and white furniture:
The walls in the bathroom, decorated in dark violet tones stand out with a catchy color accent on the background of such bright splendor. White porcelain sinks and marble floor look nicely against this background. The interior of the bathroom looks luxurious:
In accordance with the chosen style, designers choose the most suitable decorations for this house. Ancient amphorae, dried vine trunk, linen curtains and bedspreads with wrinkled effect– all this excellently fits for interior decoration:
The bath model fully meets the traditions of a rustic Italian country house. The outer cover resembles painted unpolished iron:
The design of the country house in Italy we studied is the perfect embodiment of seeming simplicity perfected.
