Architect and designer Paola Navone is known for her breathtaking and well organized renovations and designs.
Several of her interior spaces use elegant whites, presenting them in a non-formal and draped, fresh way. However, her spaces do not look anything like just white rooms. They are overlaid with warm tones and relaxed pieces that are not at all stuck up or untouchable.
One example of her divine transformations can be seen in a project that turned an unused, old warehouse into a refreshing and flowing home in Umbria, Italy.
Forget the vast, empty warehouse feel that probably existed before Navone got ahold of the space. With a layout that will make you drool, zones are sequestered for privacy and socializing.
High pieces take the eyes up and make you realize the large expanse of the warehouse. For instance, the interior wraparound deck is a completely cool use of the upper level area.
Cozy, smartly positioned pieces like the oversized sofa are inviting and relaxing.
Her seamless blend of contemporary and artful with timeworn pieces and textures is brilliant. Throughout the home rustic and sturdy furniture is mixed with vintage finds.
Salvaged tree splices turned farm table owns the center of the space. The flooring in the dining area creatively mixes wood with a geometric tile inlay, and the wood, whites and grey tones in the open area all compliment each other.
There is something about provincial blocks of wood used as staircases that is simple but full of character.
Even the storage details are creative and fresh looking. A unique and functional modular wardrobe is made from placing 2 huge whitewashed cabinets back to back.
The use of fabrics proves just as important in these rooms as the furniture.
Spots of vibrant earthy colors emit energy, while the breezy, crisp vibe relaxes the eyes.
