This apartment refurbishment is an ode to the simplicity of Italian interiors of the 17th century from which Joseph Dirand borrowed molding details and plain walls adorned with marmorino, a type of pigmented stucco. The slightly irregular walls subtly shift in color throughout the space, creamier in the bedroom and grayer in the entry and kitchen. Dirand and his family often eat there at a vintage Ettore Sottsass table, unusual for its absence of color. “It’s as if he designed it for me,” he says.
