Laura Dragotti, owner of the Riad store in Milan, lives in a Scandinavian-style family house that she has decorated entirely in white.
The house is 260 square meters, has two floors and a terrace. The kitchen is completely white and is filled with light thanks to the double-height windows. The kitchen is like a white box with a piece of texture, with vintage furniture and modern sleek finishes and some lamps hanging from above. Dark floors and carpets create a strong contrast to the entire white room. The dining area is right next to the large windows to enjoy the view from the terrace.
The living room shows the classics of the Scandinavian style: all in white, with various rustic elements such as burlap, modern tables from the middle of the century and an artificial fireplace in a minimalist style. I like simple industrial pendant lights that appear to be wrapped around the ceiling joists. There is a lot of green in every room of the house, and that gives the feeling of living in the country, what I would call the Scandinavian landscape.
The master bedroom is clean and quiet: it’s white and has a large four-poster bed, wall lamps and dark, mid-century modern bedside tables. Striped black and white textiles provide more contrast in the room.
The terrace is an urban jungle that separates the house from the city. There is a small forest of palm trees, various flowers and Mediterranean shrubs that climb the arbor and form a green roof in spring. You can also see some stylish woven furniture by Patricia Urquiola.
