Villa Independent Houses
A villa is a type of house that was originally an ancient Roman upper-class country house. Since its origins in the Roman villa, the idea and function of a villa has evolved considerably. ... Then they gradually re-evolved through the Middle Ages into elegant upper-class country homes.
The best place for opulence and luxury are villas. There’s just so much space that it doesn’t feel overwhelming. The trick to getting grandeur right is not to go overboard, but to have elements that sit together well. Well-lit false ceilings, paneled foyers with dull gold finishing, wooden flooring and walls, ornate chandeliers are design elements that sit well, neither weighing heavy nor too light. What matters in their use is again the uniformity of design. Pick a signature room – living or dining – and play with subdued opulence in that space.
Let there be space for everything. Don’t go overboard with one set of things and lose out on the other. If for example, one-of-a-kind furniture are what you want to collect, make sure you don’t do too much of it too. Make space for essential accessories, rugs, collectibles from your travels, kids items and loved ones. In the kitchen make open and closed shelving, space for refrigerators, and other appliances. In the bathroom, keep space for towels and toiletries. Let there be space for everything, and also spaces where there is nothing at all.
