The light and airy contemporary family home of Clara Ceccherini (as seen in our Style & Design issue on shelf now) is testament on how to personalise a new space after a renovation.

The innovative renovation was overseen by Eligo Studio – a company renowned for their unique approach and original design language – with the final result informed by the unexpected choices of its creative owner. We gathered some invaluable advice from homeowner Clara Ceccherini’s interview to ensure your newly renovated space immediately feels like home.

How to personalise a new space

Give your home a one-of-a-kind feel with custom pieces
‘I personally asked to have an artwork by Elena Carozzi. We met through our careers and I immediately loved her work: her colours are normally intense and the pictorial gesture very evident. In this case, we proceeded by subtracting and using precise shades, with the silk support giving shimmering results.’

Be flexible
‘We hadn’t thought about a terrace – it wasn’t in our plans – but today we enjoy the privilege of the space, and taking 
care of plants has revealed some green thumbs in our family.’

Add sentimental touches
‘I loved the idea of surrounding 
myself with pieces by artists and designers with whom I used 
to collaborate.’

Don’t be guided by only one point of view
‘The final outcome is a good synthesis between my husband’s rational and pragmatic expectations and my own experimental nature.’

Express yourself
‘The colours were chosen following the heart, and are a true expression of what we love.’
