Ristorante “Il Riccio” located on the island of Capri in Italy became part of the Capri Palace Hotel & Spa under new ownership, and a major renovation returned it to a Mediterranean stylish hangout. In the 1960s, it was a popular eatery under the name of Add’o Riccio, which was visited by people like Jackie Kennedy. The new owner wanted a traditional Mediterranean ambience of the 1950s and 1960s. The restaurant interior design by Marco De Luca features a white and blue colour scheme with Mediterranean wood furnishings, and mosaic tiles create an atmosphere emblematic of Capri.
The Dolomites House in the Dolomite mountains in the Italian Alps at the border between Italy and Austria was remodelled by JM Architecture. Everything has been custom designed, from the kitchen to the see-though-the outside gas fireplace. The bright and open concept of the house is enhanced by custom built maple wood floor. The large glass sliding doors create interaction between indoor and outdoor. In the garden, tall wood walls and ipe wood deck surround the house. The sunbathing platform with a Jacuzzi completes this contemporary Alpine home.
