Here is a beautiful home belonging to a Sicilian, Carlotta Saporito, located in Sidi Bou Said, a picturesque cliff town in Tunisia. The interior design is a collaborative effort of Carlotta and her mother, and the art direction was done by Nana Spio-Garbrah, Interior stylist at Blueprint Africa. I first saw the living room on their instagram page, and fell in love instantly. The space had a striking character featuring a very unique coffee table, seating and decor accessories with warm colors and Mediterranean textures. The walls were painted white and had on it some interesting carved wooden masks and a painted portrait of a Mediterranean woman. Looking back now, I can now place my fingers on why I fell in love with the space, it looked invested, personal and quirky. You will come to agree with me when you see the rest of the house. Here is how Nana describes it ;
The house has a vibrant personality, one you would always remember once you encounter it. Despite what their intentions were for the dining table and chairs, I think they came out pretty well. Their rustic traditional look adds an interesting rich natural texture to the house. The footie is not a bad touch, we all know how we love to place our legs on the lower part of the chair or table, plus its additional storage too. I also love the jeweled wooden storage box with the bag atop. Superb!
