We’ve chosen this wonderful Italian modernist mill conversion for this month’s Pick of the Pads.
It’s the home of fashion designer, Barbara Garofalo and is featured in the July 2015 edition of Elle Decoration – it even gets on the cover!
Factory spaces aren’t common in Rome, and this former wool mill provides an amazing structure with which to work.
It’s airy, clean and uncluttered… and we love it!
The colour scheme is largely white with muted, natural shades – and just the odd flash of strong colour which works superbly well – the red kitchen cupboards or striped textile on this bed for example.
The huge floor-to-ceiling windows let sunlight pour in…
…and there’s a distinct vintage industrial feel to the décor with rough hewn wood, wire racks, baskets, hooks and trolleys.
The spaces flow into each other so well and it’s both homely and functional – a difficult balance to achieve. It looks pretty much perfect to us!
