This bright and colourful interior design project came to us from the talented Italian designer Maurizio Giovannoni (Maurizio Giovannoni Architetto). Designed the renovation and interiors from his base in Rome, with one meeting with the owner and over 400 emails! His principal goal was to open up the apartment, allow in more natural light and provide the owners with better views of the nearby historical sites of Turku. The interior design was based on a blend of Finnish and Italian influences (the cultures of the owner and the designer). Local birch timber and vintage Finnish furniture pieces are beautifully combined with contemporary Italian design, including the Twiggy floor lamp by Foscarini and Olimpia pendants by Ideal Lux. The white walls that are typical of scandinavian interiors are broken up with colour and contrast, the prominent feature being the amazing nature themed wallpaper by Conceptuwall.
