Private home

An estate in the province of Bologna surrounded by small villages hidden by patches of dense forest from which the roofs of houses and steeples of the churches barely manage to sprout. In a landscape of fruit trees, rows of vineyards ordered with care and green meadows extending as far as the eye can see, only stained with fields of ripening wheat, stands a villa able to blend harmoniously into the charming atmosphere, combining modern features and technology with aesthetic choices which complement the surrounding landscape: from the exposed brickwork decorating the columns and other elements of the façade, to wooden pergolas and the recovered roof tiles in full compliance with the original style of the area.

Inside the residence you find spacious areas and very classy furniture. A minimalist look that follows the colour scheme of white walls and wooden floorboards. All around there are discreet and constant references to technology, from household appliances to entertainment systems, and design complements which together make for an environment which is sober but decisive, personal but refined.

On the walls, alongside contemporary works of art or the plasma screens,the Vimar Eikon Next series devices stand out as some kind of trait d'union. The rigid design of the Classic plaques in matt silver is the finishing touch on an electrical system complete with all the available functions, enriched by the highly refined accessories that come with the choice of relying on the the By-me home automation system for the complete management of the residence.

By-me is the answer for a home that must wake up when its inhabitants do, or which falls dormant in moments, just before its inhabitants go to sleep: a simple touch and the lights come on, the blinds are raised and the hi-fi system begins playing favourite songs; a few gestures to turn off all the lights in a moment and activate the alarm while the blinds are lowered and the temperature falls to the night settings. With By-me, the home experience is more simple, more functional and more secure.
