Keeping It Neutral

A Contemporary Penthouse in Monaco

The new Caffe Latte Contemporary Modern Penthouse in Monaco is a perfect definition of elegance and luxury with touches of functionality and simplicity. Throughout the space, neutral tones deliver harmony and comfort through a minimalist aesthetic. The surrounding city, Mediterranean coast, and local architecture serve as clear inspiration.

In today’s homes, contemporary interiors are comfortable and welcoming without being cluttered and dark,” says the Portugal-based Caffe Latte design team.

Form and function meld perfectly in Monaco’s first contemporary penthouse, designed by the experts at Caffe Latte studio. With plenty of open space and lavish furnishings, the residence is perfect for entertaining or just enjoying quiet evenings with family.

A tour of this incredible penthouse begins with the spacious entryway. Its modern decor offers a brilliant opportunity to delight houseguests from the moment they step inside. This is the best place in a home to display great artwork or even luxury furniture that catches the eye. It’s the spot where everything begins. Comfort, minimalism, and space define the penthouse entryway, providing a serene atmosphere and introducing the home’s neutral yet inviting tones.

Caffe Latte’s Loren or Marco dining chairs could easily replace the Collins chairs seen around the table for a bigger statement.

Other areas to explore include the bright living and dining rooms, a sophisticated kitchen, a luxurious master suite with a walk-in closet, a sweet kids’ bedroom, well-equipped bathrooms, and, last but not least, a singular office.

A neutral children’s room blurs the boundaries between playroom, classroom, and bedroom for a modern family.

Despite a color-free palette, the possibilities are endless in the penthouse’s living room, thanks to the use of layering, hero furniture pieces by Caffe Latte, and contrasting textures. Comfort, modernity, and functionality are perfectly in sync here, delivering a warm ambi[pence to residents and guests. The luminous feeling easily carries throughout the rest of the home.

No detail was spared by the European interior design firm Caffe Latte, even in the penthouse’s smaller spaces.

When it is time to eat and spend time with family and friends, the happiest place will be the dining room. The Caffe Latte team chose an open, practical, and cozy area for entertaining. The adjacent kitchen is likely the home’s most used room, so the top priority was making it an enjoyable space for spending time. With straight, clean lines, the kitchen still captures attention thanks to its sleek decoration and finishes, including the marble island, matching backsplash, and two metallic pendant lights.

The calming neutral palette continues throughout the home, including the sumptuous master suite, which features a den and an impressive en suite bath.

The Caffe Latte penthouse was inspired by the modern contemporary style of decorating, where interiors showcase space rather than things. This European interior design firm and furniture company’s goal is to provide ergonomic functionality to any room through a modern minimalist approach. Its team hopes to accomplish this by complementing other architectural design aesthetics by using a neutral color palette, presenting sobriety to any interior decoration project, and, ultimately, creating a consensual and transversal design suitable for any taste.
