“When it came to designing this space, I was inspired by everyone from set designer Tony Duquette to architectural polymath Renzo Mongiardino, but it was interiors company Casa do Passadico that helped me realize those dreams and bring this space to life. We wanted to have a mix of different styles from different periods, like cpmbining 18th-century pieces with mind-century modern – that mix is what makes a room feel really special, gives it personality and elicits emotions. I particularly love antique baroque gold consoles and mirrors in the main room. They are all hand-carved and make the space feel dramatic and cinematic, almost as if you were walking on the set of a Franco Zeffirelli film. Scent is extremely important for creating ambience and making a space inviting: we always have fresh flowers in the showroom and burn Jo Malone’s fig or tuberose candles they’re my favorite fragrances”.
