Monday Design: Castello Di Vicarello

Please do not mistake this for complaining, because it is the farthest thing from it, but it is HOT. It has been swelteringly hot all weekend and I couldn't be happier. However, after a Chicago winter, it's taking me some time to get used to the 90 degree days. This little heavenly getaway in Tuscany looks like just where I would want to be wasting away these lazy summer days. The Castello Di Vicarello is definitely a dream. I love how is keeps the essence of Mediterranean living but adds modern pieces into the rooms. The dark rooms are not only inviting, but perfectly set up for afternoon siestas. And if you're ever missing the views while inside one of those dark, cool rooms, just take a peek out of the window. Sounds perfect doesn't it?

 I adore the feel of this room. The paint job looks rough and unfinished yet warm and inviting at the same time. I love that sponged look on walls. No matter how interestingly you paint a wall it's almost always going to be one of two things - glossy or matte. Adding the sponge texture gives it a little something that very few other rooms would have otherwise. 

Again here, the texture in the paints adds to the character of the bedroom. I love how the burnt, unfinished orange mimics the color and texture of the headboard.

Wouldn't you love to get lost in this southern sunshine?
