design et al are delighted to announce the further shortlist success in the Living Space – Europe Award for NR Group in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2015 for their Italian Project.
This stunning Italian property has been designed with a traditional Mediterranean feel in mind.The brief was to be able to create a functional and stunning holiday home that can be enjoyed in stunning surroundings and reflect the local feel. Italian marble and attention to detail of the construction combine with pillars and columns that open up into typical Italian piazza style courtyards and rooms,meaning furnishings and fabrics needed to be carefully sourced and chosen so to enhance the feeling and ambience of this home.
Natalia and NR Group have used neutral colour drapes to match powerful and dramatic architecture to create a drama rarely found in a holiday home. Powerful colours and designs of cushions compliment the feel with vivid and rich colour choices stimulate the senses and add to the style and opulence of this home. Food is as important as football in this part of the world so a dining room is beautifully dressed with chairs perfectly dressed and striking red colours set the scene. Fruits and greenery created inside brings a feeling of the outside into this home whilst pale timber and ornate white porcelain are subtle but distinctive of the design.
NR Group have had to over come unusual shapes due to the construction and style of this property and have created unique spaces and private areas whilst still ensuring a welcoming feeling and flow to this stunning home,a very unique quality that Natalia has the ability to reflect in her design.
