Luisa Beccaria’s House




One of my all-time favourite houses. Actually, a castle—castelluccio, one of Luisa Beccaria’s homes. Disciplined, elegant, simple. ‘It’s called calce... it’s the old, local way to make paint. I am very interested in colours that are not very evident.’

Photographed by François Halard for Vogue October 2001. See the whole article here. The second to last photo is of Beccaria’s daughters, Lucilla and Lucrezia, wearing her designs.
