The colors and textures in this Roman art gallery interior by Antonino Cardillo make us feel deeply weird. But we also love it. Spotted this week on Dezeen, which noted the following: “Described by the architect as a ‘green golden grotto’, the space was based on the opening scene of the Wagner opera Das Rheingold. This particular scene depicts the bottom of the Rhine river, where the three Rhinemaidens — Woglinde, Wellgunde and Flosshilde — are playing together.”
(Cardillo is the guy behind one of our favorite interiors projects in recent memory, the House of Dust.)
