Ingenious And Futuristic Florence Residence With Hints Of Rustic Charm

As a cultural and artistic hotspot, Florence has been a shining beacon on the world map for centuries. Imaginative Italian architecture, innovative design and that indomitable spirit of this thriving city have drawn in many brilliant minds. Located in the heart of Florence is the astonishing House with View of the Future. Elegant and sophisticated it blends in the historic and rustic elements of Florentine design with a playful and ultramodern makeover. Designed by Simone Micheli, it is a bit like blending classic Florence charm with a sci-fi movie set in Hollywood!

One of the best ways to design this creative residence would be unconventional. With fascinating surprises lurking at every corner, the home leaves you spellbound by the time you are done exploring the interior. Created by bringing together two small apartments in a traditional twentieth century building, the residence tries to place ancient Italian design in a contemporary and trendy manner. Spread generously across three levels, the home uses an open floor plan that sees flowing interaction between the bedroom, living room, dining area and the kitchen.

Another interesting addition to the home is the use of mirrored surfaces. Cool cabinets, décor and even the white pillars are covered with mirrors to create a dazzling visual. Smart addition of green and orange accents further enhances the pristine white home. The rounded edges, floating shelves, glossy white décor custom created by the designer, unique coffee table and plush furnishings truly usher in the uber-modern look.

The scented cedar dining table and white lime plaster walls add the rustic appeal. With an open living room that offers unabated views of Florence on the third floor, the House with View of the Future is indeed a complete package. Unconventional, dynamic, ultra-futuristic and exclusive, it sure gives you plenty to talk about when guests arrive!
