It was Maurizio’s design of his own apartment in South East London 15 years ago that got him a place at university. He told his tutors how he had designed and built much of his one bedroom apartment, how he had converted the loft into a master bedroom and dressing room, designed and built a black spiral staircase and created a bathroom which artfully combines wood panelling with tiles. It took him six years to complete, and is a capsule collection of all the things he loves - dark woods, leather, stone, wallpaper and a brown, grey and blue colour palette. He also designed much of the cabinetry and furniture himself.
"I like to combine classic style with luxurious detailing, but always with an emphasis on comfort. I love to keep traditional design fresh with a modern twist.
Ralph Lauren taught me to pay attention to detail; it transforms a space. Books are fundamental to a room, for instance."
