Stylish Penthouse Apartment Overlooks Mount Vesuvius

This penthouse apartment is the hallmark of bright and elegant interior designs. It was designed in 2018 by FADD Architects and it’s located in Naples, Italy. There are a few key elements we should mention before anything else: the overall vibe for the space is fresh and sophisticated without falling into opulence and the windows are large and frame marvelous views of the Gulf of Naples, the island of Capri and the Vesuvius volcano in the distance. Now let’s step inside and take a closer look at this magnificent apartment.
