A Dazzling Red & White Decor

I really enjoy how this Italian Fortress-like Farmhouse has been Transformed -
with white paint and yards and yards of brilliantly Red & White Striped  Awning Canvas - into a Secluded Haven-! 
Above is the Living Room with it's giant round Table and a Chinoiserie Mirror which serves double duty as a display piece for Post Cards - Photos and Memento's.

The Living room walls are decorated with Plaster Peacock Hen Eggs - 
as a Coat of Arms - and Footprints.  The Painting of a Dog is By Gianni Penati - Professional Photographer - a Protege of Diana Vreeland.
 His wife Sandra Penati also worked at Vogue

Same Living Room with French Chair and Bench - 
All the Table Covers - Cushions - and Upholstery -
were made By local Seamstress Antonietta Castigllone.
All so Simplistic and Beautifully Tailored.

Genoese Beds have Canopies - Blue Bedspreads - and Red Bolsters
made By Antonietta.

The Main Bedroom Bed was dressed By Antoinette 
in the Red & White Awning Canvas.
She also made the Duvet Cover with the Red Piping.
The Red Chinese Clotheshorse is a nice accent.

The Red Wrought Iron Chandelier is hung with Chilli Peppers.
Chair slipcovers by Antoinette.

Same Kitchen - looking into the Living Room.
