Hotel Palazzo Decumani in sober liberty style dating from the early twentieth century was used as private houses and, though retains its appeal, appeared in an obvious state of neglect and decay. But the energies related to the place, the culture of the city of Naples filtered through the windows, from which one could admire the lovely view of steeples and roofs of the old town. The life and the warmth of the place invaded environments.
The main architect was to bring to light its original glory by adding a touch of exclusivity and charm, recreating an experience of luxury and beauty. Was chosen for this essential and elegant design, which recalls the classic style but reinterprets it with restraint, along with refined materials and finishes.
The ground floor is devoted to services and therefore fulfills the functions attached to a structure for public use while also welcomes visitors and wonder: the lobby, bar, breakfast room and living room are furnished with sofas and large and important ottoman velvet in shades of gray and purple, specially designed by the architect, together with linear furniture and stained wood reception desk covered in gray leather. The apparent contrast between the classic style of some pieces and that of others becomes more modern in this project and only a perfect fusion between the two styles.
At the center of the hall stands a beautiful spiral staircase in marble which the architect wanted to highlight further with the inclusion of a large chandelier of blown glass purple. Drops from almost touching the ground, wrapped in spirals of the scale, to form almost a single body.
The twenty-eight rooms on the upper floors were designed for rather soft and cozy ambience: the rich fabrics, color clay, strong and decisive, are contrasted in a game of pure white color of the ceiling and walls, while wood floors oak give a sense of warmth, home, the travertine bathrooms are stylish Navona and comfortable, defined and designed in every detail and even here in clear contrast with the stone benches linear dark wood furniture complete the atmosphere of lights.
