With its gray stucco walls and simple architectural massing, Varese's Villa V by Milan- and Moscow-based  Raboni Architetti  saves its riches for the inside, where a muted palette meets an undertone of saturated color. It's the new minimalism, Italian style. Photography via Raboni Architetti . Above: In one of the living areas, the red in the textiles quietly warms up the gray plastered walls. Above: The eclectic furnishings include a mix of the antique, modern rustic, and industrial. Above: The neutral palette finds warmth, texture, and an element of surprise in rust velvet-covered vintage chairs. Above: An updated loggia brings light into the upper-floor sitting area. Above: Dark cabinets, a concrete countertop, and a patinated bronze pendant shade come together to create a minimalist and moody kitchen. Above: Each room offers its own hint of color. Here, metal-framed bistro chairs have rattan webbing with integrated red stripes. Above: Clean lines are offset by rustic elements, including a wood table, rough-hewn cutting boards, and woven placemats and trays. Above: An industrial faucet paired with a stainless steel sink. Above: In an under-the-eaves bedroom, chairs covered in soft yellow linen are surrounded by a palette of neutral grays and browns. Above: A sink and a round nautical window are fit in beneath the upstairs eaves. Above: The built-in furniture, painted the same gray as the walls, blends in with the architecture of the room, while the wooden eaves are painted white to give height to the space. Above: The landing of the metal spiral stair has been inscribed with precision into the wood floor. Above: The handrail detail at the top of the spiral stair is elegant in its simplicity. Above: The house is located in the stone-cutting town of Viggiù in Varese, part of the Lombardy region, about 30 miles northwest of Milan. Above: A pair of industrial lights are wall mounted on the exterior wall of the loggia. Above: A verdant garden surrounds the house.
