BEAUTY: Interior--Fabrizio Rollo

Dapper dandy and frequent subject of The Sartorialist (Scott Schuman), Fabrizio Rollo was an editor at Brazilian Vogue and is currently an editor at House Beautiful Brasil. Therefore, his own apartment in São Paulo is featured in the December issue of Elle Decor.

His home is a wild, eclectic mix of Beaux-Arts objets and pieces from the 30s and 70s. I have always said that if one puts together all the styles one loves, the overall sense will work because it comes from a single mind and single source. How could one not choose something that would go with everything else?

Although located in Brazil, Rollo's apartment has a lovely European vibe, and a certain cavalier grouping of pieces and colors and patterns that indicate a true collector. It is a wonderful, Old World, cultured sense that just does not see much play here in the United States.
