There are so many things I love about this home in Seville: the chinoiserie room, the neoclassical library, the baroque salon, the sculpture courtyard inspired by Sir John Soane London home or the not-so-easy task to make a new building look like has been there forever. But what I love the most about it is the interior designer who created this dreamy abode, Amaro Sanchez de Moya. He’s one of my favourite Spanish interior designers and I was beyond happy to see this home featured on Elle Decor US October issue.
Congratulations Amaro on this beautiful project and a so well deserved international feature and cover!

The other day I was talking with a friend (more fantasizing really) about which interior designer would we hire to decorate our homes. None of us had a clear name in mind but I must say that after seeing Nina Flohr’s London home, Veere Grenney would be my perfect match. Greeney knows how to find the right balance between modern and traditional, his use of colour and pattern is superb and the spaces he creates always look so chic yet comfortable. As in Grenney own words “It’s not about living grandly or modestly but about achieving harmony, comfort, proportion and a sense of beauty that is right for that person and that place”

Count Raniero Gnoli calls home to a treasure trove apartment located in a Palazzo in the Lazio region. But one wouldn’t expect less from Gnoli. He is one of the world’s greatest authorities on Roman and Byzantine marble, a scholar of Tantric Buddhism, and for more than 40 years a professor of Indology at Sapienza Università di Roma. He recalls beauty as a prime necessity and this home is a complete reflection of it.
