Bathroom of the Week: An Italian Bed and Bath at a Revamped Villa, Luxe Edition
Forget the overly cheery pinks and greens of Lilly Pulitzer: We much prefer the lush, moody treatment of the colors at in Piemonte. Co-owned by Swedish sisters Marie and Annica Eklund (who also run design company ), the 16th-century-villa turned hotel is causing us to rethink a formerly preppy palette. Here’s a look.
Above: On the grounds of a working vineyard, the villa was recently renovated in collaboration with architects and Swedish design studio . Each of the 16 guest rooms have terraces and balconies with views of the vines.
Above: The makings of a Villa La Madonna guest room: custom rugs and cushions by , dramatic velvet headboards, dusty-green- and rust-colored throws, and ochre-hued glass pendant lights.
Above: A detail of the Bolon-designed woven cushions. On the wall: vintage black-and-white photographs and tiny antique mirrors.
Above: The Rowan pendant light from Danish lighting company is made of mouth-blown glass.
Above: Countryside-chic: linens draped casually on a bed. The throws are from .
Above: The guest baths are tiled in glossy deep green. In room No. 10: marble floors, crystal pendant lights from , and antique mirrors above twin washbasins.

(In addition to the lush beds and baths, we have our eye on summertime dinners on the terrace and massages offered al fresco.)
N.B. The Eklund sisters just launched a collection of rugs, inspired by the woven styles in each villa guest room, now available via Bolon.
