Pucci's Palatial Paradise

Here's a peek inside fashion royal, Laudomia Pucci's country estate just outside the foothills of Florence. It's absolutely breathtaking and filled with precious family heirlooms (like a coat of arms!). I love the whole Mediterranean royalty vibe and use of strong graphics and colors...just like the fashion house' signature look.
How's this for an entrance hall!? Isn't that 16th century fireplace to the left and the solitary floor pillow placed in front wonderful? And I would kill for arches, columns, and windows like that. The sunlight would be enough to make me never want to leave!
I would also kill for this vintage Pucci rug in the main living room. The hint of pink is the perfect complement to the dark red 19th century furniture, which I might add is from Emilio Pucci's grandmother's personal collection....a descendant of Catherine the Great!
These are the kinds of things that catch my eye and evoke a sense of deep admiration for the designer...the tilt of the desk placement is just perfect! It's one of those things that could look off at first glance but the more you stare, you can't deny that it is so right on! And aren't those original Emilio Pucci painting stunning? I've fallen in love with this home :)

This is an amazing post! I'm not even sure where to begin. That fireplace is absolutely incredible~ I love the vastness and majestic look of it. I want to sit in that living room with a cup of Jasmine tea and look through the hundreds of books that line the shelves...I could spend an entire day wandering through this place~
