In the past we have covered homes of business tycoons and fashion Moghuls like Tommy Hilfiger, and Ivanka and Melania Trump and looked into private lives of those who bring you the best in luxury and lifestyle. Taking a look inside Carla Fendi’s Roman palace apartment will give us just an idea about what people like Fendi’s CEO would like their homes to look like. Located close to Fendi’s headquarters on Via della Fontanella di Borghese, Palazzo Ruspoli is a building that was constructed in the 1500s. But don’t let this Baroque-era building make you feel that this apartment is any less.
Designed by famous Italian designer Cesare Rovatti, the apartment’s restoration from the Baroque feel to a modern-day luxurious home took close to two years.
Just step inside the apartment, and it will open you up to a whole new idea of living in luxury.
This three-bedroom apartment with lofty white walls and ebony floors is home to some exquisite art – a bar originally made for French fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent, a French Art Deco bed, a 1942 still life by painter Giorgio Morandi, a Matisse drawing, and a funky 1968 conceptual piece by Italian modern artist Enrico Castellani, and don’t forget the collage by abstract artist Alberto Burri.
According to Carla, “As soon as something extraordinary—be it a painting, a work of ceramic, or glass—catches my eye, there is no escape: The object must be mine.”This is absolutely true just by looking at extensive art collection she has preserved in her apartment.
