In March 2014 a Client contacted me to ask if I would Pleeese help her with a project in Italy. They had bought a villa in the Italian Lakes and were having problems in sourcing furniture and soft furnishings.
Furniture they saw in Italy was often very modern, shiny and very expensive or at the other end of the scale not what they were looking for at all, the language barrier adding to the problem. What a dream project for me. Over the last two years I have sourced furniture, rugs, mirrors and lighting and have made bespoke lampshades, headboards, chairs and sofas and made scores of cushions. Once all this was shipped to Italy we began making curtains and blinds, made more cushions and bed valances. Finally in May 2015 our fitter made the journey to Italy to hang the curtains and fit the blinds. The result of everyone’s hard work is a truly stunning, warm and inviting home, where my Clients enjoy entertaining friends and family.
It has been a privilege to work on this project and the Clients have been pleasure to work for. Here are some of the pictures we’ve taken of the project.
In the open plan living room we used a beautiful fabric from Chase Erwin and the Silent Gliss Wave system. The curtains traveled well from the U.K and the wave system ensures that the curtains remain stunning all the time, the look is tailored and immaculate.
