This 753-Square-Foot Milan Apartment Is Extravagant, Romantic, and Extremely Pink

In the Italian city’s Chinatown, architect Nadia Orecchio has created a rose-tinged apartment inspired by her life partner

All 753 square feet of the apartment are tinged with pink. From the walls up to the ceiling, including furniture pieces like the large bookcase that dominates the entire living area, pink is ubiquitous in this home. Pillows, fabrics, upholstery, and even the cat’s comfortable bed glow with all the various warm shades of pink. It is a shade that, in Nadia’s eyes evokes the austere and, at the same time, delicate beauty of her companion.

The home offers many atmospheric nooks and crannies, such as the dining room where a stunning sideboard has vintage design elements, illuminated by Louis Poulsen’s bright lamp. Making the room even more magical, vintage furniture in neutral shades further enhances the dominant color of the design. Stand-out pieces include the sofa by Ditre Italia, the coffee table by Kartell, the bedroom closet by Driade, and the table light by FontanaArte. The magnificent red armchair by Molteni&Dada complements the colors of the home, as does the Smeg Italia kitchen in a flaming red that stands out against the pink walls. In short, it’s an apartment in the heart of Milan that looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland.

The bathroom’s pink hue is thanks to Sikkens Italia paints. Mirror by Kartell and accessories by Gaetano Pesce.
