Although there are a number of apparently contrasting elements in this house, the subtle dialogue between textures and illusions is actually perfect for creating personality and identity. Architect Laura Beretta oversaw the renovation of this home and Zenucchi Design Code also contributed, collaborating with the architect, proposing interesting ideas and supplying furniture. This included, most notably, the custom-made wood panels in heat-treated checkerboard-effect Eucalyptus in the living room, a genuine game of geometries and optical illusions. Completely different in character yet just as intriguing is the book-matched matt Tuscan grey marble wall, a tribute to this material and its fragile beauty. These two highly personal interior decorations and solutions are joined by a third, the TV and fireplace wall with bespoke brass cover.
