While the aesthetic can vary from region to region, there are certain hallmarks of Italian design that remain consistent. For one, it’s all about luxury. Not to be confused with stuffy or too over-the-top, Italian design often features luxe finishes, like gold, and builds upon a neutral base. While other decor styles might think of opulence in bright colors and textures, Italian style usually builds from a neutral palette while layering items, like wall art or textiles, in complementing colors.

So how can you replicate this style without purchasing a flight to Europe? Enter Artemest, a curated site of the best from Italian artisans in furniture and decor. Handmade products from Venice and the Amalfi Coast to Milan and the bottom of the boot all find their temporary home on the site, ready to be ordered and placed in your permanent home.
