Derived from the Italian word sfumare, meaning “to tone down” or “to evaporate like smoke,” sfumato is a technique in painting that softens the transitions between different colors. The effect is a smoked out, highly blended quality, like a soft defocusing. Here, in the exquisitely moody Florentine home of creatives Silvia Mazzoli and Gianni Guastella the quality appears in full effect. Tonal and subdued, the home keeps its dusky, muted color palette dynamic with bold and sculptural furniture pieces.
