January 25, 2024

Nestled on the outskirts of Castiglione delle Stiviere, on Morena hillside south of Garda, a marvelous work of architecture by Antonino Cardillo was born, Elogio del Grigio House. With an enchanting interior design graced with monumental arches and prism-shaped ceilings, the house embodies the essence of a miniature palazzo.

Drawing inspiration from the mysterious beauty of the misty lake, the shades of gray encapsulate every facet of the house from exterior to interior. With the presence of these gray shades, a calm and peaceful atmosphere pervades the entire house, giving the residents a distinctive visual and emotional journey.

Symmetrical open facades, characterized by elongated openings and graceful arches, bring residents back to the atmosphere of ancient pianura residences. It is as if this house weaves a visual poem that resonates harmoniously with the elegance of the surrounding environment.

A spacious living room with a high textured prism ceiling and soothing gray color acts as the heart of life in this house. Adorned with impeccable aesthetic value furniture, this living room exudes unparalleled elegance, featuring hammams marble from Istanbul. Complementing the grandeur of the room are Venetian windows proportionate to the grandeur, evoking a sense of freedom and tranquility for every dweller.

Curved elements embellish the doorways, creating a nostalgic touch reminiscent of classic palazzo architecture. The gray symphonies on each wall transcend the house beyond physical space, inviting residents to a timeless realm of colors, textures, and whispers inspired by misty lakes. Through the architect's skillful fusion of gray with home decor elements, a meticulous reconstruction of architectural chromaticism unfolds in detail with elegance and sweet symphony.
