LIVING BY DESIGN: Tuscany, ITALY [Vogue Living]

On a recent visit to Tuscany, I was congratulated for having been an influence on how 'case coloniche' have been restored of late.

The use of woven fabrics is a simple aesthetic which is repeated from all over the world and includes hand-woven saris used as bed curtains, etc.  More important perhaps is heating with air and radiators disposed in such a way as not to intrude on the rough  architecture which also means more space in rooms that are sometimes small.

I first designed an infinity pool in the far distant 1970's overlooking only the water of Lake Geneva.  This infinity pool is surrounded by  olive groves and evergreen oak trees in a landscape that has remained unspoilt since the Renaissance.
