In the entry hall you find a 19th century large mahogany Imperial style sideboard coming from Puglia.
From the large entry, you enter either the living room and down the hallway to the laundry, the kitchen, the small bedroom and the second large bedroom. The hallway has floor to ceiling French doors that open over a railing onto the internal courtyard. It is a great way of bringing in cooling breezes and the warm Roman weather.
Four large windows lit the living room, overlooking Via Borgognona towards Spanish Steps, Hotel d`Inghilterra, via Bocca di Leone and Palazzo Torlonia. The warm ochre of the palace is enhanced by its elaborate marble window frames. At night the palace glows but doesn`t glare into the windows of the apartment creating a relaxing atmosphere.
Two white large sofas and two armchairs are grouped by the working features stonework from my ancestral home in Puglia. The hand-hewn ceiling beams have been exposed to display the room as it was originally designed. A sparkling chandelier Bohemian glass hangs from them.
Here you find some fine antique pieces, such as a sideboard, a desk and a long dining table that will seat eight. The huge Persian carpet, the gold-leaf frames of the mirrors and the paintings create an elegant environment. There are a television with satellite reception and a DVD player that can read American and European format DVDs.
Next to the living room is the master bedroom with a queen size bed. Here are two comfortable armchairs, a 19th century Neapolitan desk and a large Persian rug which gives a feeling similar to that of the living room and Neapolitan watercolors on the wall.
The en suite closet area is great with spaces for stowing your suitcases and open shelves and rods that keep your items in view. The closet leads to a bathroom with a tub equipped with fixed shower head as well as hand-held one.
Entering the hallway you find on your left a nook containing washing machine and heater, on your right the kitchen that has a four burner stove top, oven, dishwasher, small refrigerator/freezer, toaster, Nespresso machine, dishes, flatware and pots and pans.
