Finding a holiday flat in Rome just got easier

London and Milan-based design-build company THDP has completed a collection of short-term rental apartments in three of Rome’s most desirable locations.

The first is a series of three-bed, three-bath apartments reflecting the free-spirited energy of the surrounding Trastevere neighbourhood. The rich, lively colour scheme extends to eat-in kitchens in dusty blue and sumptuous green master suites. Hardworking upholstery and lively local tiles demarcate the various spaces, like the vibrant sitting rooms with their bonus pull-out sofas. The designers have gotten creative with trompe l’oeil paintwork, lacquered colour and powder-coated hardware.

Over the Tiber River, near Piazza Navona, a more dramatic, grown-up look takes shape in a couple of three-bed, two-bath apartments with generous garnet-red kitchens. Bedrooms in ‘turmeric’ and blue have bespoke lighting by Il Paralume and brushed brass accents, and everything has curves, from the headboards to the shower screens. THDP have retained original artworks from local artists, framed by the local craftsman Patrizio Agostinelli.

And finally, to the ancient Colosseo neighbourhood, where several one-bedroom apartments occupy a building rising from the ruins of a Roman prison. Here, THDP has put together several tailored, neutral schemes in black and white with splashes of brown, green and dusty pink. The palette is reflected in striped cushions, wallpaper and terrazzo flooring. Bespoke pendants by THDP tie in with black powder-coating on the hardware and wardrobes.

The apartments are operated by rental managers at Be Mate.
