The Italian fashion designer Elsa Peretti purchased an old watchtower on the coast of Tuscany as a vacation home. It was called La Torre. The Sixteenth Century structure was built for military purposes, so Peretti had to have it redesigned with comfort in mind. So she hired architect Renzo Mongiardino to renovate it.
Mongiardino took the old fort and turned it into a fairytale castle by covering the walls with three-dimensional images of fantasy scenes, including this stunning fireplace that looks like a giant’s mouth. You can see more photos of the home at The Art of the Room.
