When we first featured the work of Studio Strato back in 2018 (here) and 2019 (here), I was taken by their soft and muted but still unexpected use of color throughout rooms: pale greens and pinks, rust and grey-blue. Now, a few years later, they’ve taken the saturation up a notch.
The latest of the studio’s transformed interiors was sent to us by Vincenzo Tattolo, one half, with Martino Fraschetti, of the Rome-based firm. Malaquite House has the distinct feel of an airy, brightly colored European summer house—even though it is a petite top-floor, two-bedroom apartment in the heart of Rome. (One side of the flat looks out at the Basilica de San Giovanni in Laterano; the other, the Colosseum.)
Take a look at the playful, bold interiors, redone for a family of four and their dog, with colorful ceilings and clever paint tricks, striped floors, and archways that feel straight out of an Italian villa.
