About Casa Mille
Historic Legacy of Casa Mille
Casa Mille nestles within a 1930s addition to the historic 19th-century palace of the Counts Callori family. Previously, the space functioned as the Count’s artisan workshop and stables in the outdoor garden. Remarkably, the kitchen remains the sole room from the building’s 19th-century phase.
Intricate Design Inspirations
The property’s rich history significantly influences the design. The living room, born from the Count’s workshop, now boasts an industrial helicopter concrete floor. Conversely, the stage echoes the home’s historical essence, punctuated with a contemporary, asymmetrically-cut industrial finish.
Modern Touches Amidst Classic Charm
To counteract the industrial feel, designers opted for contemporary, iconic touches. They incorporated American walnut in bespoke furniture and selected textured upholstery. This juxtaposition softens the starkness of the concrete floor, lending a cozier, more inviting ambiance.
Contrasting Material Choices
Materials in each room both contrast and complement, elevating their respective charm. All wooden elements possess a gleaming finish, providing a reflective sheen. In contrast, laminates, lacquers, and fabrics flaunt more subdued, matte finishes.
