Luxurious, Minimal & Modern Rustic

Rustic decor, luxurious interior design, minimal modern luxe, and Rustic Refined Interior Design reign in this room by Michael Del Piero. #rusticmodern #modernrustic #interiordesign #luxuryminimalism #minimalmodern #modernancient #sophisticateddecor #interiordesigner #michaeldelpiero #hamptons

An ivory area rug anchors stunning pieces which include a table draped in a hand-crocheted wool tablecloth. Michael Del Piero envisioned the iron daybed in this rear bedroom as a versatile piece to also double as a sofa. The spacious and luxurious bedroom boasts a seating area with Jan Ekselius lounge chairs, a 17th-century armchair, and a marble-topped round concrete coffee table. A rustic wood console makes the perfect pedestal for a tropical planting and African stone beads. The beautiful chaos and impossibly airy salvage metal chandelier illuminates the space as a work of art by Lucy Sivinski.

    I LOVE THE OLD WORLD APPEAL!!! I FULLY ACCEPT A DWELLING TO BE RESTORED, BUT LET US NOT RESTORE IT TO THE EXTENT, THAT IT LOOSES IT’S HISTORICAL VALUE. I LOVE TO SEE MODERN APPLIANCES, AND APPLIANCES THAT ARE MADE FOR EASY CLEANING, AND I DO LOVE TO SEE DWELLINGS THAT ARE MADE HANDICAPPED, ELDERLY, SENIOR CITIZEN FRIENDLY. THERE ARE STAIR LIFTS NOW AVAILABLE TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THESE INSTALLED. LET US SAY, YOU HAVE A VISITOR/FRIEND/RELATIVE TO VISIT WITH YOU IN A WHEELCHAIR, YOU WOULD WANT THEM TO FEEL COMFORTABLE AND INDEPENDENT. I FEEL THAT ALL RESTORATION SHOULD INCLUDE THESE POINTS. ONE THING I HATE IS TO HAVE A DWELLING RESTORED ON THE EXTERIOR, AND ON THE INTERIOR MAKE IT TOTALLY AND DISGUSTINGLY MODERN.

      Thanks for cheering me on and soaking up the inspiration, lovely one. Viewing your work brings me such joy, and I dream of a day I can visit the gallery and hug you in person. xox

    Now that was a LOT of pretty, but my favorite is still your very own kitchen. It must be such a joy for you to spent time in there. You did such a fine job of renovating it and can take a lot of pride in it.

      Thank you, Celia! It truly is gratifying to know we created it ourselves – but the temptation is always there to start again! 🙂
