No trip to Italy is complete without visiting major fashion brands such as Gucci and Fendi. While passing through Florence, we couldn’t miss visiting the abundance of inspiration that can be found at Gucci Gardens. Opened in 2011 by Alessandro Michele in Palazzo Della Mercanzia, the Gucci Garden is a collective showcase that reveals a lot about the brand’s history and vision.
The Gucci Gardens have three different parts of the complex. You have the normal Gucci boutique and bookstore that houses the latest pieces to purchase when first walking in. Exiting the store, you enter the Gucci museum. The museum is three stories tall and features archival and couture garments from the brand and accessories and one-of-a-kind creations that are special to Gucci. All of the touches, like the wall art and carpet, are all Gucci-inspired. Lastly, to the left of the main building is Gucci Osteria. This is the Gucci restaurant that features one-of-a-kind dishes from Massimo Bottura.
While walking through the museum, we came across amazing artwork. Painted on the walls, this black and white piece is a unique interpretation of gender equality, addressing common issues. The baby blue background hosts the eccentric murals by MP5, a famous Italian artist based in Rome. This masterpiece expresses her signature artistic style while sharing a profound story about individuality.
The black and white figures tell separate stories while adding dynamics to the space. However, one of the details that caught our attention was the ornate ceiling. The black and white floral pattern features unique aesthetics while making a bold statement. On the other hand, the baby blue walls create a soothing ambiance with relaxed vibes. The mural gave us the needed inspiration to design a well-curated Gucci-inspired carpet.
The Gucci-inspired carpet features a carefully picked mix of baby blue and muted turquoise. We created a stylish version of the pattern seen at the Gucci Garden, with a slight touch-up. Starting with a light base, we layered on repetitive elements for balance. The prints overlap while featuring an asymmetrical dispersion for the best visual effect. The harmonious combination results in a sleek Gucci-inspired carpet design that brings serenity to the space. The color scheme brings calm and tranquil vibes, while the stylish floral pattern introduces visual interest. Hence, it would make a perfect choice for a hotel room.
