A space at the Gianicolo becomes a refined atelier, Alice: a precious environment, like the jewelry that the owner designs and creates here. The restyling concept starts from the idea of the nest as a private place of creativity, protected and at the same time projected towards the world.
The original space was a narrow room, developed in height and arranged on two levels. Preserving this distribution of space, we created a custom-made spiral staircase that emphasizes verticality.
The entrance door, an English original in penicillin green, introduces us into the atelier that recalls the dream world, conceived as a large aviary, a container that houses objects, works and furniture inspired by nature.
The gold and brass tones make the room precious, and the large mirrored wall in the background dilates the perception of space. The nature theme is predominant and can be found in the Cole & Son wallpaper decorated with peacocks and floral motifs. The spiral staircase consists of petal-shaped steps, a motif also repeated in the Botteganove parquet planks made with gold leaf.
Original Belgian wall sconces from the 1930s are juxtaposed with contemporary design pieces, such as the Mirage lamp by Slamp, sofas designed by Loto Ad Project and made with Rubelli fabrics, Fountain tables by Glas Italia, Gilda chairs by Edra, and a vase by Elena Salmistraro for the Bosa manufacture. Two Art Nouveau-inspired desks by Mogg complete the space.
The second level houses the bathroom and a space for resting.
Naturalistic decorations return in the wall covered with Plumage Botteganove feather-shaped ceramics, designed by Cristina Celestino, in green and gold: a detail, the latter, that also connotes the washbasin, a unique piece by Kreoo.
The hanging lamp, which creates continuity between the two tops, is made of glass elements that recall precious gems. The meticulous study of details and careful research of materials make Alice a timeless, refined and elegant creative space.
