The Most Stunning Interior Design We Spotted From Our Travels
From the hallowed halls of Palazzo Pitti in Florence to the seaside hotels of Rio. Shining, shimmering, splendid sounds about right.| August 24, 2017
In my few years of working in the fashion industry and speaking with different designers, the one thing I noticed across the many interviews is the citing of travel as a source of inspiration for their work. Yoyo often says that travel is her biggest source of inspiration, whether it is for Exhibit or the digital content you see right here and on Instagram. Our friend Vittoria Cordella of Joshua Sanders has a thing for translating his travels into shoe designs. It isn’t so much about the idea of travel on its own, but the places, people, interactions, events and food, just to name a few, and how experiencing these can change you. As a pair of fictional royals once said, it’s about the hundred, thousand things you’re going to see and that new, fantastic point of view.
Of the many things that can inspire, perhaps the most obvious and in ample supply is interior design. One doesn’t have to be in the creative industry to want to seek beauty. Who doesn’t enjoy the idea of being, walking and living in a beautiful and well thought out space? The thing about interior design is that it can vary so vastly in just one city. London, for instance, can go from pink and cheeky at the famous Sketch to minimal-meets-eclectic at Bourne & Hollingsworth. In Palazzo Fendi’s exclusive Palazzo Privé alone, we saw centuries-old walls mix with furniture and tchotchkes from and inspired by the twenties and sixties. Nothing, however, floored us quite like Palazzo Pitti and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
Of course, one doesn’t have to travel physically to be inspired by interior design. That’s why we have books, films and the this thing we call the internet, so that we can travel in our minds. No one to tell you no or where to go in this regard. Above, we’ve compiled some of the most stunning interiors we’ve seen, but if you crave more decorating ideas, don’t forget to check out our “Room Diaries” series. (I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise for the many Aladdin references. You have to admit that they were fitting, though!)
