Industrial designer and star interior architect Paola Navone renovated and redesigned this beautiful farmhouse of hotelier Andrea Falkner Campi in Spello, Umbria.
Andrea Falkner Campi and her husband, Feliciano Campi (of the Editoriale Campi, a small publishing company, which produces a stylish almanac, Barbanera, which Andrea describes as a yearbook for daily good living) called in the very successful and talented Italian Interior Designer, Paola Navone, to help her transform this 200-year-old factory -now a magnificent Italian Farmhouse- into a beautiful and cozy open space home of 5,300 sq ft (500m2) in her hometown, Spello, Umbria (about 90 miles north of Rome).

The ground floor is the living area that features the family room, kitchen, dining room, living room and a deck. Full of stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, it’s the place I’d want to spend most of my time, too.
The top floor houses the bedrooms, where the master includes this to-die-for closet.
The basement level serves as the parking area and has space for six (yes, six!) cars. It also has a game room, cellar and a room and bathroom for the driver (!).
Also loving the amount of foliage and house plants that have been incorporated into the design and landscape.
