Back to my love affair with Volume 4 of Elle Decoration Country. Today we’re in Umbria, in a new home that straddles traditional and contemporary in a very successful way. The siting of the home along a hillside, and the use of local materials is an ode to the traditional, while the minimalist interiors and modern furnishings bring the home into the 21st century. As a lover of old houses, this house is definitely a favorite in the “new house” category. While its age is not necessarily apparent upon first glance, a second look reveals the integrity of the structure and modern details such as windows, doors etc. I would happily spend time in this loggia, wouldn’t you?
