I start to write this post with the awareness of having a big mea culpa, the blog was silent for almost a month. But I’m back…and while I go back to Bologna, home of Ro starts from home, from Puglia.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that lately I’m obsessed by the colour and by the heat that furnishings and natural materials able to give him. Therefore, the very first post of the year could not be this,
the project restructuring and furnishing of a complex of lamia in the countryside of Ostuni.
Interior designers Marco Simeon, and Cosimo Cardone attended, maintaining materials and traditional building techniques, with stone vaults and walls scialbati lime.
I fell immediately in love with this maze of connected environments from the
concrete floor industrial black
A few furnishings, but almost all of them with a history, retrieved with the love among the family heirlooms of the master of the house.
And then there is also the warmth of nature, in the two beautiful “shades” created by Marco: I love the one made with the blades of prickly pear found on the beach.
You need between environments? Living room, dining room, and at the bottom of the kitchen.
The kitchen is aluminum, which is symmetric but broken by the position of the sink and a lot of vintage items on shelves. The floor is made of concrete, as a para sketches a slab of marble, it, too, recovered from a mobile family.
And here’s a glimpse of the second kitchen, the annexe, with floor of cement, and a decoration to the corners created by some cementinaalready present in a previous house of Marco.
On the shelf is a fun collection of fuses in ceramic and glass.
ll portal stone has been recovered and treated as a decorative element, and at the end of a few cm from the structure to create the evocative play of light and shadow suggested in the picture.

What do you say about this latest home tour of puglia? I begin to believe that I should ask for a compensation to my region, and considering how much advertising I do.
