For most people, owning a Tuscan villa won’t ever be in the cards—at least not in this lifetime. But there are still ways to live out your luxe Italian-living fantasies, courtesy of hotels, bed and breakfasts, and the like.

The latest entrant is a swoon-worthy artist residency in Florence that doesn’t require you to be an artist for the privilege of spending a night or two there. In fact, the enterprise, called Numeroventi, combines multiple functions, including an exhibition space, coworking space for artists and designers, and loft apartments.

Located within the Palazzo Galli Tassi, a 16th century palace near Santa Croce Square in the heart of Tuscany’s capital, Numeroventi was created by Martino di Napoli Rampolla and Alessandro Modestino Ricciardelli, with interiors designed by Andrew Trotter.

Historic frescoes, ornate molding, high ceilings, tall windows, and other period details combine with minimalist Scandinavian furniture to create bright, open, and dynamic spaces that are sure to inspire everyone from artists and design residents to the everyday traveler. Take a look.
