Saladino’s Muse

I’m aware that I keep referring to John Saladino’s work in my posts- aside from my admiration for his inspiring interiors, studying his work helps me to understand his thinking process and his point of view.

In a House & Garden article that was published in June 1998, a Colorado home that was put into the capable hands of Saladino was showcased. The owners were avid collectors who needed a guiding hand in designing their home to house their various antiquities, which ranged from Greek, Roman, and Egyptian origins to Japanese screens and Art Deco furniture.

Saladino managed to set the stage for all their antiquities by remodeling the house, and successfully left his own stamp. He created a refined look with a soft palette of grey, off-white, beige, brown, and pale blue- with emphasis on light. He produced a house that was extremely personal that reflected what the owners wanted: a tranquil home filled with treasures.


Ten-foot tall windows and glass doors were installed for maximum natural light. The door led to the terrace
Saladino created this work of art by mixing the Art Deco Ruhlmann chair, an Italian chest, antiquities, plus the Japanese screen
Love the background views of the lake and the Rocky Mountains in the media room which was also used for meditation
Saladino also designed the garden, he was inspired by English brooks
