Renovated Barn in Italy

Located near the Gulf of Grosseto, in the Tuscany region in Italy this barn has been completely renovated by architect Daniele Bedini with local materials such as the stones from Mount Labbro and chestnut for all wooden parts. The original small windows were kept but there are so many other big windows and doors that there is plenty of natural light inside. It is basically furnished with flea market finds and items that used to belong to Daniele's grandmother. Lavender and sunflower yellow are the colours that dominate throughout this warm rustic house.




The kitchen table belonged to Daniele's grandmother. In fact, all of the kitchen was designed to resemble her grandmother's kitchen as it brings back fond memories of her childhood.


Rustic bathroom with an antique stone sink.

The small window above the bed shows the thickness of the walls.

In the porch a typical Tuscan countryside table and chairs were painted white and lavender. Wicker chairs and coffee table for the seating area. Weather proof curtains provide sun protection and shelter this cosy space.

  1. This barn lights up your mind, the vivid colors are so cheerful and transmit happiness. I like the yellow/orange color of the interior! It combines with everything! The pastels are also great!
