Welcome to the early 1900′s Milan apartment of designer Ernesto Pigni. In an 2011 interview with At Casa, Pigni discussed his passion for symmetry and visceral love for balance and proportion. He also took care to cite that everything good has its limit. Within his own home Pigni has struck a beautiful balance between his innate love and drive for perfection and the necessity to incorporate the slightly off and unexpected. Desiring a monochromatic backdrop within the space, Pigni painted everything (walls, trim, door and window frames) one color… he even had the curtains custom died to ensure a perfect match to the wall surround. He then deliberately counterbalanced this serene neutral field with unexpected pops of color brought in through furniture, dishware, lighting and accessories. Pigni added additional layers of contrast by introducing a number of classic 1960′s furnishings throughout the otherwise contemporary decor. The result is a multifaceted gem of a space. I hope you enjoyed! via
