Arch. Antonella Rinaldi
Studio of architecture and interior design based in Milan.
A complete service ranging from the design and renovation of residential and commercial buildings, to the furnishing of interiors (with the possible design of custom-made furniture), to the study and definition of graphics.
I carry out the supervision of works, which is fundamental for the control of the execution, and I also take care of all the bureaucratic aspects of each project.
I love experimenting with different solutions through materials, colours and finishes, and I propose solutions based on accurate minimalism and attention to detail that are suited to the client’s needs and personality.
With creativity, passion and professionalism I propose the best solution to enhance the available space through the definition and choice of paths, volumes and furniture.
What where your objectives when you chose the materials to be used for your floor or wall coverings?
I wanted to create an elegant, modern and bright environment that reflects both the personality and the needs of the client. For the bathroom and the kitchen, black and white was the elegant colour choice and never banal, providing details and personal touches in both rooms as if they were tailor-made suits.
“Black is everything, as is white. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony”. C. Chanel
What made you chose the Tonalite products?
I was looking for hexagonal tiles that would enliven the choice of black and white colours and I immediately appreciated the irregular shiny texture, which is perfect for creating plays of light and shade on the wall.
What colours and combinations did you chose and how did you use them?
Glossy white Exabright tiles were laid in such a way that they created a sort of upper crenellation highlighted by the pearl grey colour of the wall paint. The mosaic floor and black taps provided the strong contrast that made the room minimal but elegant. The only warm note is provided by the oak washbasin unit.
