House Flora: the new Venice

Traveling is useful, exercise your imagination. Everything else is disappointment and fatigue “ , says Céline Louis Ferdinand in his famous book Journey to the End of the Night (1932), a successful premise that also invites us to know and discover new lands and spaces. Therefore, if you are a foreigner in Venice, Casa Flora is one of the most beautiful resguardos of this medieval city, a photovisual.com home that seduces the most shy looks and forces them to dig inside.

This wonderful stay is the result of the art direction of Diego Paccagnella and the Venetian hotelier Gioele Romanelli, two visionaries who pursue tirelessly perfection. Conceived as a boutique hotel and apart-hotel, it is offered as a cozy contemporary option for those who love those places that are an extension of the dream home. The interior is divided into two separate sections for the enjoyment of various activities. The first one is designed as a public meeting place, a  piano nobile in which culinary activities are organized, custom shoe displays and cocktails sponsored by local artists. The second corresponds to the rooms, a private area reserved for visual pleasure and rest.

Matteo Ghidoni and interior designer Laura Sari were in charge of the decoration: cages provided as lamps in the dining room, murano art and hand-painted tableware are some of the precious treasures that decorate the house, offering an ambivalent but harmonious aesthetic. Palladian tiles, Rubelli textiles and doors made from heather wood contrast with a beautiful garden that remains hidden between walls of vines and floral floors in which romantic vintage chairs  decorate the most beautiful evenings. A divine universe in which, in addition, everything can be acquired by its guests since the house functions as a showcase for different signatures of national and local design.
