The wood, great protagonist
All the wooden pieces used in this house come from an old farm in South Tyrol, which was demolished a few years ago, and was restored and cleaned to show all the beauty of this material. Beams and planks were used for the replacement of ceilings, stairs, floors and walls. The wood floods everything, from the living room to the kitchen, in furniture and doors, and even in the bathroom; in one of them we see a carved wooden sink.
The living room
It is one of the most welcoming areas of this house; with permission from the bedroom … It is a space in which despite using marble slabs on the floor the warmth is assured. And it comes through the walls and wooden ceilings and the use of textiles like soft cushions for sofas and carpets on the floor. The dining chairs come from Burgundy and are typical of the shepherd’s houses in the 18th century. The touch of color is made by the orange sofa.
We leave until another stay equally cozy. This is the bedroom, in which we see an impressive front wall in which is integrated a shelf and textiles in white and gray tones that provide a very pleasant feeling, especially if we imagine the cold that should be doing outside … The frame The bed is made of wood and the headboard is upholstered with fabric. The mattress is made of Mohair wool and linen curtains.

The decoration of this mountain apartment in Italy
The decoration of this Italian mountain apartment is characterized by fairly neutral tones such as gray or white, which give a greater luminosity to the wood which is perhaps a little dark. The touches of color come from details in orange, which appear in small strokes throughout the decoration, in which we see mostly pictures on walls, books and some objects that evoke the winter.Tags: mountain apartment, rustic style
