In the heart of Florence, a stone's throw from the "living room" of the city, the elegant Via Tornabuoni, the shopping street, there is an ancient tower house, from the 15th century.
A small elevator takes you to the top floor, and a sweet bell warns of the arrival of the lift. The door opens, and you enter a fantasy world, where all bad thoughts are left out.
White Home surprises you and welcomes you with an amazing feeling tranquility, peace and silence, marked by the light that pervades each room.
In fact, light is the real protagonist and the first source of well-being: it guides them compositional choices and is enhanced by an ad hoc "palette" made of warm tones reassuring ranging from raw white painted fir on the floors to ice-colored plasters, up to the furnishings delicately emphasized by shades ivory and turtledove, the gray of the lime paint on the walls, and the touches of lavender curtains.
The space creates a soft, fluid atmosphere, made up of fragrances, candles, and vintage objects recovered in the markets.
White is the dominant color of the house, to which the romantic view alternates on the roofs of Florence, which can be admired from any environment.
It is exciting to have breakfast on the lovely balcony looking at rooftops, or indulge in reading a good book immersed in an enchanted silence, interrupted only by the sound of the horses' hooves passing through the center.
At sunset, there is a special magic: a particular play of lights in the floor, makes it romantic and unique.
The architectural narrative is guided by the details and the revisited materials, which they bring back to memory with poetry, French suggestions.
This suspended atmosphere of peace is often sought after by writers looking for inspiration, artists but also directors and photographers: White Home, in fact, was the location set of many advertising campaigns, and today it is used exclusively for shooting, photoshoots, commercials and filming cinema, show cooking and private events.
All the furnishings in the house are also directed towards light: the furniture has been supplied by the Florentine company Riccardo Barthel, as well like the bathroom with shower, in black and white, perfect 1930s subway style. The sofas, beds and curtains are by Bellora.The Provencal style prevails in the kitchen: a large fireplace has been recovered creating a refractory brick work surface. The sink is in sandstone. The bathroom with tub is from Devon & Devon.
