When architect Margherita Thumiger (of London's Studio 29) got a call from an old friend asking for help designing her classic, 20th-century Milanese apartment, Glynn was of course on board. After all, Thumiger has known the client — owner of a concept children's boutique called Mini Ampère — for over three decades and understands her taste, which, unsurprisingly, given her profession, is fun and refined: "She loves fashion, design, and art," Thumiger said.
The main goal was to make the home feel family-friendly but still curated and intimate. Interwoven throughout the apartment (which is sizable, but not huge, at 1,000 square feet) are family heirlooms, vintage- and retro-inspired pieces, as well as colorful touches that bring just a hint of fantasy. But our favorite space has to be the bedroom of the client's young daughter, which, with its twinkly canopy, is just the type of dream room we wished for as kids.
