Mix and match

Category

During latest years Terracotta color is spread all over the world including all categories: from fashion to interior design. It’s one of the most durable trends which continues to be very successful, probably because it lends itself well to different combinations, combining well with warm colors and materials such as wood (for a material effect) but also with cold colors such as grey and blues and materials such as concrete (creating an interesting contrast effect).

Our style office has developed a finishings proposal on this color, mixing it with neutral colors and pale pink with a modern and feminine result. A tone-on-tone combination ideal for those who love to furnish by playing with shades.

Terracotta is a refined and natural shade that goes very well with light and natural tones. Beige and white are the most suitable tones to give light to terracotta, the ontrend enveloping color that helps to warm interiors and to create refined and elegant atmospheres.

Fashion, design and furniture go hand in hand, exchanging ideas, inspirations, materials and colors. To develop our furnishing proposals, we often take inspiration from the world of fashion in order to offer our customers finishes and fabrics in line with the main trends of the moment. Today we show you the refined textile proposals elaborated by our style office by mixing the fabrics with which we normally work with the extraordinary furnishing fabrics signed by Hermes and the effect of Hermes patterns on some of our models inspired by the early 1900s with hand-made carvings. You will discover that, if mixed artfully, the motifs that have made Hermes scarves famous all over the world can give a unique and classy touch to our homes too!

The floral fabrics go very well with the classic style furniture and help to recreate the romantic and elegant atmospheres of the past. We often use floral fabrics in the decor proposals we make to our customers by mixing them with different patterns and plain fabrics of different compositions, our way to create romantic settings with a contemporary flavor. On the board below, for example, we mixed flowers and stripes, two apparently very different motifs which, if balanced well chromatically, give life to very refined settings.

Duck Green is an elegant shade of intense green that is becoming increasingly popular in interior design. Named after the deep green plumage of a mallard, Duck Green is a fashinating hue because it is strong but subdued, perfect for give a sophisticated touch to interiors. Our style office has developed a fabrics proposal on this color, mixing it with neutral colors, black finishings and golden accents. Here is the result…

For many people,  autumn is the most melancholy season of the year. For us, instead, autumn is fantastic and it is a great source of inspiration…

Autumn light is magic: the colors of nature become suggestive, romantic and poignant and create combinations of absolute elegance. Just like the one between brown and light blue to which we were inspired for our new Louis XVI style living room with precious hand-carved details and refined cotton velvet.

One of our favorite activities is renew classic items using decoration and color. The best example of this is rapresented by our Jungle sideboard, a classic model in Louis XV style proposed in a modern version, enhancing sinuous french tradition shapes with a jungle inpiration decor. The single parts that makes the decor are hand made on each single piece. They are made of gypsum applied on each piece and left in place for 24 hours. 

The leaves that compose the decoration are done one by one, engraving gypsum previously put on the wood surface with small chisels. Shapes and three-dimensionality of each element are hand made by using different dimensions chisels, sandpaper and brushes.

Leaves, well refined, are painted and shaded one by one with different tones of color. Once the brush decoration is done, the sideboard is refined with another color layer and with traditional settled patina. Palms, ferns and huge leaves shapes, that are super fashion these last year, inspire this gypsum decor.

The jungle theme is softened by the sage green neutral color, giving to this item a chic and warm taste, ideal to refurbish both modern and traditional rooms. 

When a new trend that mixes elements so different from each other arrives, we cannot resist the temptation and start experimenting! This is also the case for the Afrochic style, the new trend of interior design that unites tribal cultures and European traditions, reversing the codes of the traditional ethnic style that from eccentric and excessive becomes sober and elegant. How? Mixing refinement and European craftsmanship to objects, colors and patterns from distant lands, just like we did! In our Afrochic experiment coexist precious hand-carved decorations and extravagant animal prints, African statues and bowls in rough wood and antique gilded finishings, an elegant and refined way to bring into modern settings the authentic and mysterious charm of distant lands.

 

It’s time to say goodbye to Millennial Pink and let a new color reign supreme. We’re talking about Gen Z Yellow, the range of bright, lively and energetic yellow tones that have begun to invade fashion, design and home decor.

We love the mustard yellow hue and we often use it to enliven pieces with very classic lines.

Sometimes we combine this shade with dark colors like blue or black to warm the cool tones of space and create elegant contrasts and unexpected chic atmospheres.

Strong and bright colors, floral patterns, patchwork and texture of ethnic inspiration. The boho style, with its unique, spontaneous and brave aesthetics, is the king of mix and match and we are often influenced by it! Here are our chic bohemian style reinterpretations, original and personalized combinations between the refined classic French lines of our pieces and the vibrancy of contemporary fabrics with colors and quite extravagant motives.
