When the customer contacted me for this country house he infused me his paramount passion for horses, so far admired by a respectful safety distance. I wanted this passion to shine through the entire home.
The project is divided in two areas with different souls.
The first zone is the real home, more private, where the entire family live.
This area is characterized by light colors, in the ivory and cream range, and natural materials such as the Samarkand stone floor and an antique oak wood ceiling.
The large spiral staircase, in the center of the space, characterizes the home and unifies the living area with the sleeping area.
The fireplace area, deliberately more intimate, is characterized by a frame in cast bronze and the boiserie in dark stained oak wood.
The second soul of the project is definitely more colorful and strong.
This area, used by the whole family, is designed to receive friends, enjoy a cocktail, and exhibit a part of the impressive and constantly increasing number of rodeo’s trophies that the owner won.
The fabrics in ethnic themed decorations, the solid mahogany wood and the furnishings were designed to be comfortable, handy and make this area informal: the ideal place to relax after a horse ride.
From all over the house, especially at the first floor, the wide windows show compelling hillside landscapes that change season after season.
The white fences marking the pastures and the huge number of horses running free make this house thoroughly unique.
