Gasthaus Reichhalter 1477 Lana, South Tyrol - new design hotel guesthouse Italy

Imperfect Beauty

An unassuming beauty whereby imperfection narrates the interior design to a restful palette of chalked whites

INTRO

A feature of village life for centuries, this building was crying out for someone to give it love without painting over its wonderful charisma of heritage and aged presence.

Today, 1477 Reichhalter is a tiny Gasthaus of originality – an unassuming beauty whereby imperfection narrates the interior design of raw simplicity framed in a restful palette of chalked whites, copper green and soft greys from the milky to leaded pencil.

Reichhalter embraces the cornerstones of its former life and the history pleasingly commands attention: the feel is utterly authentic without trying too hard – this is not an engineered refurb, it is crafted and palpable. Treasured furnishings, salvaged pieces, ceramics in cereal tones, muted linens in putty colours and a small library of well-turned books were all deliberately hand-picked for this house, and no other.

Despite being a small guesthouse, this B&B is rounded off perfectly with sink-into-luxurious bedding and organic skincare from guru Susanne Kaufmann: adding a touch of indulgence to the clean puritan edit.

Reichhalter is for those who love putty tones, earthy demure and heaps of wrinkles of times past – a tiny hotel that clearly feels confident in style and is at ease with its new owners who dared to fall in love with this house.

Klaus pulled in architect Zeno Bampi and champion of stunningly authentic interiors, designer Christina von Berg to help visualise his visions of comfort forged with history and authenticity.
