It’s surprising how materials like wood and marble, which are so powerful, can give such a cozy feel as seen in this interior by Carlo Colombo. Yes, the space is grand and the materials have such a strong presence but somehow, it still feels cozy and safe. Wood’s warmth is probably the leading factor for this, but the use of dark thick marble slabs and area rugs that mimic the look of marble really strengthen the whole ambiance and add a touch of elegance. It distinguishes the interior setting it apart from just another space that has lots of wood. We’re a fan of this striking yet cozy combo, at Villa St. Moritz by Carlo Colombo.
