Famous interior designers –Studio Peregalli designed a Milan apartment
Studio Peregalli, a famous interior designers duo (one of the AD100 list 2016 decorators) , distinguishes for its classic enchantments in interior design projects. The proof is this chicest Milan apartment. A few years ago the patriarch of a venerable Italian family synonymous with luxury textiles decided it was finally time for his Piedmont-based clan to have a home in Milan, Italy’s fashion capital. So he found a run-down 3,000-square-foot apartment—a place with noble potential—in one of the city’s iconic edifices and began to plan.
Although the Piedmont house is contemporary in design, the paterfamilias desired something utterly different for the urban flat: a look that would evoke Milan’s rich 19th-century spirit yet feel entirely of today.
He enlisted Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli of Studio Peregalli, a Milanese design firm with a signature style that could be called willfully Proustian, consisting of lush fabrics, elegant antique furnishings, a jewel-tone palette, Vermeer-like lighting, baroque paintings, and classical sculptures.

For starters, the hallway was transformed from an L shape to a straight corridor. To block the corridor’s view of an unsightly service courtyard, the windows were covered with stiff brass-mesh shades trimmed with silk ribbon, made to measure by Paris-based designer Lilou Marquand, a longtime assistant to Coco Chanel who has worked on numerous projects for Studio Peregalli.
The living room design is long and spacious, with large windows overlooking the city.
The cozy adjoining dining room, which seats six, is paneled in antiqued mirror painted with a burgundy damask pattern that discreetly exploits the verdure across the street.

The private quarters are altogether regal. The patriarch’s master bath is particularly grand, with flourishes like a handsome chrome-trimmed steam shower and arch-framed faux-marble mirrors that reflect one another, creating an illusion of infinity.
During construction Sartori Rimini and Peregalli uncovered traces of original decorative and architectural elements that had long been obscured, among them the library’s recessed niche and bits of molding, which they restored and incorporated into the room’s new design.
