Cultured Minimalism: Margraf Marbles Define Polished Sicilian Villa

If you love marble and natural stone, then you will instantly fall in love with Villa Rivesto in Marsala, Italy. The gorgeous contemporary home in Sicily uses a wide variety of marbles in different finishes to give its interior and exterior a refined, yet luxurious ambiance. Utilizing the uniqueness and exquisite charm of Margraf marbles, architect Maurizio Giammarinaro does a stunning job of crafting a home that is both understated and dashing at the same time. From the façade clad ever so carefully in diagonally-cut Grigio Ducale marble to a bathroom backdrop covered in Onice Verde, this is a home that exudes marble magic!

With a simple, minimal style, the interior of this Italian home cuts back on both color and excesses. White is the go-to hue here with furniture in darker colors bringing contrast and anchoring the open living space. A fireplace made of Pietra Pernice enhances this idea of dark and lighter tones coming together even as an ultra-modern kitchen filled with natural light and the bathroom benefit from the presence of Bianco Thassos tiles.

Beyond the use of both natural and composite marble finishes, it is the cheerful, classy and sophisticated vibe of this Italian home that stands out visually.
