How do you breathe new life into a legend? In the salons of the Villa Medici in Rome, where Galileo pondered the stars and his fate of heresy, and where Debussy composed his unorthodox orchestral works on a grand piano, the venerable architect India Mahdavi has recast dwellings heavy with history by interweaving her lyrically colour-soaked approach with the antique interiors.
“I think I would define myself as a poet of colours. What I try to do is to create a harmony — to make a room sing,” says Mahdavi.
