Studio Venturoni warms up a Rome apartment with earthy hues. Bands of terracotta and sand-coloured paint wrap around the walls of Trevi House, a one-bedroom apartment in Rome that has been overhauled by Studio Venturoni. The apartment is situated at the heart of the Italian capital, just a stone’s throw away from the famous Trevi fountain.
Its interior had previously been dominated by heavy masonry partitions that were splitting up the sizeable 80-square-metre floor plan into several small, cramped rooms. Custom wooden cabinets and bookshelves accumulated by the owner were also blocking natural light from coming in.
Tasked with creating a greater sense of space inside the apartment, Milan-based Studio Venturoni decided to knock through all of the existing partitions. This more open floor plan has allowed room for a central dining area. Surrounding walls here feature wide bands of terracotta and sandy-beige paint, two earthy hues which the studio felt were synonymous with Rome.
Studio Venturoni also contemplated that the horizontal bands of colour would make the room appear wider. Terracotta and orange surfaces appear again in the adjacent living area, which has been dressed with a lengthy grey sofa that slightly rises up on one end like a chaise lounge.
This item was specifically selected for its slight resemblance to a triclinium: a type of seat that would appear in the formal dining rooms of affluent Roman homes, composed of three adjoining chaise lounges on which residents would recline while being attended to by servants.
Other striking furnishings – like Fabio Novembre’s face-shaped Nemo armchair – have been included to match the ‘monumental feel’ of the apartment’s grandiose mahogany doors and wooden ceilings, which the studio decided to preserve during the renovation works.
Burnt-orange tiles have been used to line the floor and the lower half of the walls in the kitchen, which was given a complete re-fit with jet-black cabinetry. A curved black counter has also been installed directly beside the kitchen’s window so that inhabitants can overlook the bustling tourist crowds or listen to the sound of the waters from the Trevi fountain while enjoying breakfast.
Cooler tones appear in the apartment’s bathrooms, where surfaces have been lined with grey-flecked stone tiles. The bedroom also features a blue headboard and curtains, tempered by rich, mustard-coloured dress cushions and brass lighting fixtures.
