Real Homes: Modern & Vintage Curiosities

2nd February 2012
People sometimes assume that Italian design is only crisp, white, modern lines but on the contrary they are also big lovers of vintage too. Here homeowner Alessandra Santi immediately fell in love with her 1930’s home in Milan. A lover of art, photography and travelling her home is a nest of interesting curiosities. Modern twists with vintage pieces fills this place with so much personality. Totally inspiring don’t you think?

    I'd give a lot for door frames like these…and I like the free standing fridge seemingly disconnected from the kitchen. Great interiors! xo

    There are some fantastic styling details in these images! I love the bright pops of colour against the soft whites/greys and natural materials.

    I agree with the above comments about the doorframes – really lovely shapes.
