From waking up to views of the ocean just beyond rows of olive trees, to meandering in a private garden at golden hour, it's easy to live la dolce vita at Masseria Moroseta.
This airy bed and breakfast in Puglia, Italy is an oasis surrounded by five hundred acres of olive trees, where a slow pace is encouraged by its organic, textured design. To create a hideaway that looks and feels part of a forgotten time, designer Andrew Trotter drew from medieval building practices and the traditions of Italian farmhouses to source materials, and then worked with local artisans on the simplistic construction. None of the natural materials used, he said, come from any brands.
To make the property modern, he incorporated sliding glass doors, patterned tile, and raised furniture against a timeless black, white, and natural wood color palette. The result is a gorgeous haven that proves a modern-day aesthetic can be rooted in the past.
