In a Renovated Apartment in Udine, Cristina Celestino Shows the Softer Side of Brutalism
What's the first thing you notice when you scroll through images of this renovated 1970s-era apartment in Udine, Italy? Is it the pink-on-pink walls, a kind of blush and bashful situation? Is it the delicate, fan-shaped Afra and Tobia Scarpa floor lamp (which, we're predicting, is about to blow up in a big way)? Is it the conversation-pit–like living room, covered in wall-to-wall travertine tiles? The genius of Milan-based designer Cristina Celestino is that her interiors give you the space to notice each of these things, but no one element knocks the others out of balance.
