Dream-like villas: classic style interiors  - Santandrea Luxury Houses Classic style interiors in a dream-like villa are obviously elegant, but another typical characteristic is that they always appear expensive and precious, as well as reflecting the sophisticated taste and the socioeconomic status of the owners. Classic style furniture favours beauty in respect to functionality, luxury in respect to simplicity. These houses, more than dream-like ones, can be defined as “fairy-tale” villas, as they reference old noble houses, with high quality decorational materials.

Without ignoring artistic items of furniture or inspired by ancient historical ages. Everything with refined and sophisticated lines.

Wooden furniture in dream-like villas

Dream-like villas: wooden furniture - Santandrea Luxury Houses Dream-like villas are often characterized by wooden interiors, as wood is a natural material that can be used both in the classic style, with precious and fine woods, and in the modern style, which prefers raw and not carved woods, in order to give a sense of simplicity and nature within the house. Wooden furniture is able to merge luxury and comfort, glamour and warmth. Classical design prefers solid woods like mahogany, cherry or beech, also sophisticatedly crafted and with elegant details. Modern style interiors are instead minimally processed, more clear and simple, like light oak.
