Referred to as THE Wedding Location, Architectural Details Define Villa Siena
Hand carved stone frames each window and door. The exterior is adorned with golden toned stone quarried in Colorado. The exterior plaster has been expertly finished to give an aged appearance. Warm colors reminiscent of the classic Tuscan hues of warm golden honey have been expertly applied. The red-stacked roof completes the perfect pairing of gold with reds so commonly seen in the sun drenched Tuscan countryside. Needless to say, the architectural details found at Villa Siena are extraordinary.
The live gas flame lanterns adorning the exterior of the building provide a romantic ambience for those enjoying the evening air in one of four well manicured courtyards. Cherubs, stone fountains, and nicely shaped benches decorate each courtyard making any event held at the villa a memorable one.
For the perfect wedding location or party venue, choose Villa Siena.
The architectural detailing of the exterior and grounds at Villa Siena is only a prelude to the gorgeous decor found inside. Throughout the Villa, “Lighting Jewelry” further reinforces the themes of gothic and renaissance style. Each fixture was designed for the space using photos and sketches from European lighting antiques as well as historic paintings. Hand scraped Mahogany wood floors and chiseled travertine stone cover the majority of the floor in this stunning venue. Intricate hand painted symbols decorate the stone hallways, while period sconces cast their soft glow from silicone dipped bulbs.
Use of the double barrel vaulted arch throughout Villa Siena (hallways and walkways) should be credited with creating the sense that one has entered another time and place upon entering the Villa. The invention of bisecting arches is historically important because it allowed architects to plan structures with more height and volume. This structural device made the construction possible of all the fabulous gothic style churches and monasteries throughout Europe in the middle ages.
Weddings, Banquets, Holidays, Corporate Events, Showers and Birthdays are Dazzeling at Villa Siena
From the intricate wood paneling in La Stanza Firenze to the Barrel vaults in La Stanza Chianciano, Villa Siena is literally drenched in details. The designer and creator of Villa Siena, Sabrina Porter, says, “I always say that design is in the details. In order to create the effect you want, you have to be patient and take the time to add layers and layers of design. Each design detail reinforces the next. In the end, hopefully, you have a cohesive project that creates the feelings you want people to feel in that space. Most people think design is “decorating.” It is much, much more. In order to truly have a successful design, you need to start with the structure and add architectural details. For me, adding furniture, fabric and art are just the final touches.”
