The brief of the project was to make a spot where tradition meets contemporary decoration, in a pleasant manner. Here is small description from Gisele Taranto: “Ceiling, floor and walls were saved as originally and received pieces of art and designed furniture. The biggest challenge was to display that it is feasible to maximize contemporaneity to any historical room, giving emphasis to both. Pieces of renowned and new promising artists, national and internationally, were used in the space.” Even though this massive, one thousand square foot living room is not something one could easily rebuild, some of the decorating elements found here are beautiful, practical and inspiring.
