Santini Residence, Prague

Good Monday to you! Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was particularly nice with a great show by BC’s improv team, Taco Knight (it was a send off for his teammate, Anne, who’s moving to Napa) and with some friends of mine visiting from London (we went to Tipsy Parson for dinner – such wonderful southern-influenced cuisine!)

Today’s Salvaged Getaway comes to you straight from BC’s list of places he’s never been and would want to go… Prague. Actually I’ve never been either, and after seeing pictures of the Santini Residence, Prague just made my short list.

The house where the Santini Residence is located dates back to the 17th Century, but it acquired its’ Baroque elements when it was owned by a famous Baroque architect, Jan Blažej Santini-Aiche. The house was privately owned until 2002, and it then underwent a restoration. Remaining still are the authentic wooden ceilings, ribbed vaults, wall fresco paintings and an original porcelain stove.

The decor has a simple, somewhat modern sensibility to it, but it’s the architecture and the traditional design elements (hello painted wood ceilings!) that make Santini Residence spectacular.
