5 design lessons from the Louis Vuitton pop-up boutique in Lombardy

As we begin to indulge in the joys of international travel once again, Louis Vuitton has announced a new pop-up store – housed in the prestigious Villa d’Este hotel on the banks of Lake Como. 

Following the launch of their Summer by the Pool collection, the French label set its sights on the nineteenth-century Lombardy jewel as the quintessential setting for its celebration of the season. 

While we lust over the collection, we’re equally lusting over the store’s interiors. From its sweeping arches to its minimal accessories and fearless color scheme, these are the five design tips we’re mirroring in our modern homes right away.

Louis Vuitton has just given us every excuse we could need to pick up some more new house plants – just in case you needed another excuse anyway. You now have complete permission to fill your interiors with an abundance of greenery and experiment with flowers in the most unexpected of places (spot the peonies, white roses, and eucalyptus in a very chic container) for a chic way to showcase your flowers.
