Roberto Cavialli

I was looking at "Architecture Interieure Cree" magazine, the "Maisons 2009" edition, when I stumbled upon this beautiful house titled, "Lanterne florentine... magique". Of course not being able to understand French, I had to google it and that is when I found that it was Roberto Cavalli's.

Project: Roberto Cavalli Residence
Location: Florence, Italy
Architect: Italo Rota

The villa was designed for the Italian fashion designer with the colors of the home being able to change to match the personality of the home owner. Located on the hills of Florence, the villa's screen's floral pattern blends the light with the plants creating a beautiful colorful landscape. Check out the magazine for better pictures.

As I looked up Cavalli's designs out of curiosity I also noticed that he had an interesting yacht designed for him by Cantieri Baglietto. The yacht, purple in color as is the villa, is 41 meters long with a top speed of 35 knots and priced as 20 million British pounds. Eight guests can sleep comfortably in this beautiful yacht which has a crew of 4 people.

Info about the yacht is copied from here, where you can see Sharon Stone caught by a paparazzi enjoying Cavalli's yacht.
