A Nod to Italian Design

Visiting Florence over spring break, I was struck, once again, by its old-world charm.  Perched above the Ponte Vecchio at Portrait Firenze, I found my perfect home away from home.  I couldn’t get enough of this hotel’s casual vibe and classic, modern furnishings.

Owned by the Ferragamo family, the fashion world clearly had a hand in its design by Florentine architect Michele Bonan.  Light greys and creamy interiors are mixed with dark woods and black velvet furnishings.  A curated collection of modern art, and black and white vintage photography, add to the intimacy and history of the space.

It is a laid back and luxurious place with a nod to the world of of couture fashion.  I loved calling it home.  Until next time, Ciao Bella.
