A view of the living room highlights the contrast of pure primary colors and geometric shapes against a minimal white background of the floor, walls, doors and windows. A large window opens up with a fantastic view on Lake Como.

The living room is colorful and informal. The chair and sofa were designed by Philippe Bouix for Roche Bobois. The comfortable Doda lounge chair and ottoman (upper left) were designed by Feruccio Laviani for Molteni. The floor lamp is the iconic Tolomeo Mega from Artemide.

New eclecticism at Lake Como in Italy. Italian Brava Case recently redid the interior of this classical apartment at Lake Como in Italy. They made great use of a mostly pure primary color palette which contracts against the backdrop of the classical white-washed architectural details of the house. The apartment occupies a portion of an important period building from the early 20th century overlooking beautiful Lake Como. The interior concept of the apartment was designed by Italian architect Monica Venturi. The interior design is completely at odds with the historical nature of the building. But somehow, it works. Everything blends together. And this is often the case in historic Italian houses: you will find new design in traditional houses and it most often looks fantastic.
