The studio Arte dell’Abitare (Art of Living), founded by Alberto Cerracchio and Adina Berti, has been active for more than 30 years. It takes care of every single phase of interior design projects, restyling and restoration, including the conception, the creation, and the artistic direction. Art of Living is based in Rome but works throughout Italy and Europe and aims at delivering great residential and commercial projects even with the lowest budget. 

Thanks to a particular passion for handmade ceramics and decor that has an eye on ancient charm, the team of professionals bases its activity on the pursuit of the most suitable solution to give character and uniqueness to entire spaces or individual items through strategic and economically sensible interventions.

From the decoration of surfaces to the renewal of old spaces, we discover some of the most interesting achievements of Art of Living.


1. A very distinctive floor

Not a simple finish, but a real piece of furniture: such is the decorative flooring designed by the studio Arte dell'Abitare to enhance a hallway that would otherwise be anonymous. The composition has inserts with different textures, thus making it particularly multifaceted, and this guarantees an undisputed added value to the overall surface.

2. Ceramic art

In this Mediterranean-style living room, two handcrafted ceramic columns stand out, acting as both a structural and decorative element. With their intriguing shades and the gloss that distinguishes them, they are able to enrich the whole interior and give the space a brand-new charm.

The use of artistic and handcrafted ceramics is also strategic in this case: a bathroom in the Mediterranean style that appeals to tradition by focusing on decorative tiles in a small format to cover the shower enclosure, in combination with cement mortar in dusty shades. A simple but accurate addition that provides beauty and uniqueness to the surface.

The natural tendency of Arte dell'Abitare to be creative is also expressed in the decorative elements that are often unconventional, just like this handcrafted shower tray with decorative ceramic inserts.


3. Creation of tailor-made furnishing accessories

The design of tailor-made furnishing accessories is one of the cornerstones of the studio, which bases its philosophy on the concept of customization for maximum aesthetic performance with a reasonable budget.

The kitchen we are looking at, for example, has shelves designed by hand specifically for the size available. The wavy shape and the choice of tone make them look like an extension of the wall itself for a stunning visual result.

4. A living room with a unique personality

The next living room, located in the space of a veranda and furnished with great attention to detail, also has a great deal of personality. The textured effect on the wall and the details of the textiles make the difference in the room which, thanks to an ethnic touch and a varied colour scheme, is perfectly enhanced.

5. Surface decoration

Wall Decoration – Arteomete Project

ARTE DELL' ABITARE

Surface decoration is not only the flagship of the studio's activity, but it is also an excellent solution for renovating walls, coverings and furnishings without major economic investments.

The wall we are looking at is the result of a skilful re-elaboration with a decorative technique of wrought stencil padding and colours both organic and acrylic, for a rich and captivating result.

Even a simple and ancient bookcase has regained its splendour thanks to the techniques used by the team. In this case, the surfaces of the wooden and brick structure were decorated and waxed to obtain an intriguing and refined monochrome effect.


6. A restyling between past and present

The studio, specialized in restyling and interior design, has also taken care of the renovation of a large apartment in a historical building to adapt it to a new use. From a simple residential context, the space has been transformed into a real accommodation facility, comfortable and refined.

Between the trends of our time and the beauty of ancient complements, each space is revived in the name of the balance between past and present. The careful planning of the renovation has been able to comply with a limited budget, obtaining an impeccable result, thanks to some crucial decorative techniques.

Wooden Ceiling Decoration

ARTE DELL' ABITARE

The ceilings have been embellished and decorated with a stencil, applied with a pad. The floors have been recreated from scratch by choosing materials and ornamental inserts that reinterpret the splendour of the past in a contemporary key. All the wooden elements, from the frames to the furnishings, were made specifically for the place, just like the doors and windows, redesigned with the help of local carpenters and soundproofed for a technical performance suitable for a building intended for hospitality.

Other original elements have been restored to maintain the dialogue between the present and the ancient, so as to ensure that each room has a welcoming and precious atmosphere typical of the homes of the noble Rome.
