I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now - no one wears.

The Milan-based interior design and architectural firm Studio Peregalli presents for the first time their breathtaking environments that capture the classic elegance of the past. Studio Peregalli is the master of making interiors look brilliantly timeworn. Roberto Peregalli and Laura Sartori Rimini are the alchemists of contemporary decorating and architecture, possessed of the gift of transforming base materials into profoundly evocative environments with the power of stir and inspire. Those happy few who inhabit or are invited into these endlessly intriguing rooms experience by turns the drama, romance, mystery, seduction, and surprise that signal a Studio Peregalli project.

It is the complementary differences in their individual tastes that fuel these unique roomscapes. Their working relationship if of a firm complicity that has established through the years, a relationship that surges on with its gentle bickering and its disagreements and its triumphant moments of creative synergy.

Laura admires the enchantment and comfort go the settings that Madeleine Castaing created in the mid-twentieth-century France to modishly evoke those of the Second Empire. Roberto, meanwhile, cherishes the elegant austerity of early nineteenth-century Northern European and Russian Interiors, as well as a Chekhovian nostalgia that borders on melancholy.

Laura and Roberto delight in using antique salvaged interior elements and materials — deftly synthesized with contemporary fabrications — to brilliantly illusory effect, so that the viewer is not able to determine where the original elements and their interventions begin. (Their much lauded work on public historical monuments . Milan’s mayoral Palazzo Marino, Palazzo Reale, and Palazzo Morando, the museum of Milanese history, among them – naturally requires a more scrupulously authentic approach.)

They are vehemently opposed to the idea of fashionable decorating, “the idea that you change your house like you change your dresses”. Instead they would rather “create a shell – a house that just grows up with you and that you don’t feel the need to change because you still feel comfortable in it.”
