Our interior designer, Alexandra van Cruyningen, can create harmony in any space. She knows how to bring everything together or to add that missing touch. Colours are essential in her designs as well as natural materials and fabrics. The right choice of colours in a given room is always a challenge for interior designers. Because of her background as a painter and artist, Alexandra became quite the expert in this area, and so she created her own paint line ‘Arte di Vita chalk based & lime paint’ with matching collection of natural fabrics. The importance of colour, light and harmony is recognised and served in all of Alexandra’s projects. The spaces designed by her have a truly soothing effect on the people that spend time in them.
Alexandra and the Capanni team take on private homes of any shape and size. You can call on us to decorate one room in your house, a set of rooms or your entire house. Together we can realize the interior of your dreams. We can provide soft furnishings, paint, furniture and accessories. We can have items of furniture re-upholstered for you. Alexandra also designs her own furniture.
Due to our own experience in setting up and running our concept store, we can help entrepreneurs with the design of their shop interiors. Alexandra knows about the importance of an attractive interior as a driver for sales results. The shop interiors are in full accordance with the type of merchandise sold and the aims and philosophy of the shop owner(s).
Due to our experience in setting up and successfully running B&B Casa Capanni for more than five years in Tuscany, we can assist entrepreneurs in any country in Europe with the interior design of their B&B, boutique hotel or holiday home. The more attractive the design (and the better this is shown in a high quality website), the more guests will be attracted to stay and return after their first visit. We can also assist with other aspects of the trade such as marketing, the website, regulations, inventory and so on.
Soft furnishings are very important in every interior. We make lampshades and cushions by hand from natural fabrics that match the Arte di Vita chalk based & lime paint colours. Alexandra is an expert at matching the soft furnishings such as bed linen with the colours on the wall, furniture and accessories. We also offer a bespoke curtain-making service. According to Alexandra curtains make or break a room.
