Born in Zibello (Parma) in 1965, Carlo Donatistudied architecture at the Politecnico of Milan where he graduated in 1992. A few years later, in 1995 moved to New York where, as a consultant architect of Versace Group, he renovates Gianni Versace’s townhouse and the historic Vanderbilt Mansion, the main flagship store on the Fifth Avenue.
After working for one of the most prestigious luxury design groups in the world, Carlo Donati in 1996 decided to create not only his own firm “Carlo Donati Studio”, but also the “Farnese Contract” with Adriano Donati and Massimo Avanzini, that operates as a general contractor, working with the most successful design studios. Featuring an impressive portfolio filled with the best residential, hospitality and commercial projects, the interior designer became one of Milan’s most distinguished professionals thanks to his unique signature style.
Among Carlo Donati‘s inspiring residential design project, the Balance of tones apartment is one of our favorite ones yet! Located in an early twentieth-century building in the historic center of Milan, this design project is enhanced the classical soul of the window frames and parquet inlays, defining a dialogue with drier interior solutions.
Carlo Donati decided to incorporate a suspended design element above a bench to create a filter between the dining area and the living room. The refined ribbed wood and brass finish used in all of the bespoke in the living room, kitchen, and bathrooms refers to the tradition of the quality design of the 1940s and 1950s by Gio Ponti.
The whole apartment by Carlo Donati is played on a refined balance of pastel shades of powder and fern green. The mid-century blue armchairs along with the geometric lines and bright colors of Petrus’ twentieth-century paintings punctuate the environment.
This apartment project by Carlo Donati is quite unique thanks to the great color, furnishings and lighting design combinations. You can see that the trendy mid-century design vibe is present throughout the entire project, even if it is in just one simple detail. Quite impressive, don’t you think?
