The idea was to create a home as a type of extension of the Salvatori showroom just across the courtyard, an intimate space in which to host architects and designers in a more convivial context. Elisa Ossino’s vision was to reinterpret the space, using striking and vivid accents to create three-dimensional pictures, and furniture and objects as bold contrasting points of colour.

The classic nature of the apartment Salvatori, with its standout features such as the fireplace and original Terrazzo floors, has taken on a new vibrancy as a result of the colour palette chosen by Elisa, in which strong tones in a variety of declinations play off each other.

Eschewing conventionality, the exposed beams of the main living spaces have been painted in an elegant dark green, each room in a slightly different tone. The dominance of the roof is a counterpoint to the bold geometric forms of the furniture, each piece carefully selected to strike the perfect contrast with the walls in an engrossing dialogue between warm and cool colours.

The craft of marquetry is reworked in a contemporary key in the kitchen counter unit where Pietra d’Avola and Gris du Marais alternate with Bianco Carrara and Rosa Portogallo marble. The doors of the unit sit perfectly flush with the counter top and create the illusion of a vast geometric canvas.

The inlaid theme continues in the living room where a pair of pictures created entirely in marble remind one of the indelible link between Salvatori and the natural material that lies at the heart of all that the company produces.

The bathroom is a veritable showpiece of Salvatori’s signature textures, such as Tratti where tiles in matt and honed natural stone are interspersed by accents of midnight black aluminium to create an intriguing chromatic interplay between stone and metal.
