The Picky Pair {Roman Inspiration}

The following images are of a Warehouse in Rome that has been transformed into a residence. I love the beautiful mix of industrial elements with the essentials of everyday living. There is value in reclaiming and using existing materials in projects. Often these become the cornerstone of the finished project. Hope this Italian renovation inspires you too.

The open kitchen is perfectly European with simple cabinets and limited uppers. The hand-painted tile adds a very personal element, and the sleep appliances and industrial touches balance the old world charm.

The exterior of the home seems to be wrapped in vintage glass - hello natural light. The doors coordinate with the buffet and the green bowl is the perfect pop of color.

Ready for patio time and a bellini after a long day of combing the Italian flea markets? Me too.

While not too many of us are enjoying a restored warehouse in Rome, we can use this space to inspire ours with:
* Simple pieces in wood and metal.
* Accessories should be bright, graphic shapes. (This is especially key to this project.)
* Various hand-painted works.
* Case goods with glass doors.
