Mod Victorian: Casa Orlandi by Sabrina Bignami

A couple of weeks ago we disected Ligne Roset's Mod Victorian roomsets for ideas, and today we're looking at another stellar example of this mishmash of styles that popped up recently on Yatzer: Casa Orlandi by Sabrina Bignami. In this Tuscan guesthouse, patterned walls and floors contrast with simple, white furnishings...

The traditional decor in this 18th century home is not strictly Victorian, but rather a mix of older styles woven together over time. Painted with frescoes and covered with patterned tile, the house is so rich that it would risk visual overload if not for the more subdued furnishings.

Architect and owner Sabrina Bignami tells Yatzer, "The Italians are great at ancient and are also great at modern interior design but they are not so hot at usually mixing the two!"

"I am an architect who specialises in restoring period building[s] and the next time I'll start with another project in France like this...to give another life to old houses and to save old properties from ossifying."
