LUXURIOUS DESIGN OF THE OLD HOUSE
This old house is owned by a well-known interior designer John Saladino. Like many of his works, John created the interior with great pleasure. Elegant, luxurious, but it is devoid of frills, inspired interior colors and details. The house of the old buildings, it is one of those Italian mansions of the last century. Stone Garden was designed and built to have a new owner. Agree, it’s hard to believe. He planted more than 4,000 trees and shrubs on 5 acres of gardens, including more than a dozen 50-year Italian cypresses.
John lives are not alone. Interior designer Betty Barrett is his muse and companion of life. However, they believe that this villa is the result of knowledge and experience gathered over a lifetime. Four years ago, when Saladino first saw her, she was only a ruin, full of rats and garbage. He had to replace the foundation, put new doors and windows. Full restoration took at least a year, and almost led to bankruptcy. But he was never a feeling that anything is possible.
The beautiful interior with lots of detail deserves a good praise. The antique furniture, chandeliers and an abundance of textiles create an atmosphere of the old mansion, where I want to stay longer.
