Summer is all about easy living and a fresh new take on things. That applies to your home, too: ‘tis the season to change things up, bring the outside in, and swap dark hues for a more joyful colour palette.

For some tantalising design inspiration, we’ve turned to our hotels Il Pellicano, Mezzatorre and La Posta Vecchia – each one a different iteration of Italianità.

From stylish and luxe to chic and youthful, let their furnishings and accessories breathe new life into your space.

It’ll be like bringing a piece of our Pelli World into your dwellings. We can’t think of a more summery spruce up than that.

1. Fresh Scents

Bring the scent of summer – and of the three hotels – into your living room with these Labsolue candles, which feature refined essences inspired by the flowers, fruits and trees found around each property. Go rosemary for a touch of Il Pellicano, thyme to remind you of Mezzatorre, and cipriolo for a hint of La Posta Vecchia.

2. Sunny Lights

If you’re into maximalist homeware, you’ll love our ISSIMO pinecone lamp – a fixture of some of the rooms at Il Pellicano. A true showstopping piece – whether it be on your bedside table or on a living room cabinet – it’s set to ensure all-year round summertime, and make you smile whenever you walk by it.


Looking for something a little subtler? Then opt for our sleek ISSIMO x Anna Lari’s queen black or queen yellow lamps, from Mezzatorre. They’ll elevate any room, pronto.

3. Chic Vessels

Artfully swirled in blue and yellow shades of soft resin, Gaetano Pesce’s Pompitu Vase – which you’ll find in some of Il Pellicano suites – is part of his 1995 Fish Design collection, and a stunning centrepiece for your garden table. Fill it with blooms for an even more exuberant effect.

For a more classic Il Pellicano receptacle, ISSIMO Il Pellicano ashtray is another great accessory, not to mention an iconic souvenir. A tip: instead of cigarette ash, use it as an empty pockets or jewellery holder.

4. Fabulous Textiles

Lisa Corti knows a thing or two about revitalising a space. Her cheerful, vibrant textiles blend sweet florals, lush foliage and earthy tones, proving a perfect addition to any summer table or outdoor patio. Our picks? The ISSIMO x Lisa Corti bougainvillaea mustard stripes pillow and placemats, and the white Veronese stripes table cover. Inspired by the gorgeous bougainvillaea at Il Pellicano, they evoke endless summer days by the Mediterranean Sea.

4. Playful Garden Must-Haves

The ombrelloni that dot the hotels’ beach clubs and garden spaces are the epitome of Pelli-style. Choose between the ISSIMO Ombrellone Torre in ecru with bordeaux piping, the ISSIMO Ombrellone Mezzatorre with blue and white fringes, and the ISSIMO Ombrellone Visconti in pink. All made to order, they are as chic as they are fun, and will serve up a sure-fire conversation-starter at any dinner party you’ll ever host. For an even more perfect summer look, make sure to pair them with the ISSIMO X Rivolta Carmignani Pellicano Hotels beach towels. Those white-and-yellow stripes are high-design Dolce Vita.

6. Stylish Ceramics

Take your alfresco tablescapes game to the next level with these colourful ceramics by ISSIMO x Villeroy & Boch, which are used at the hotels. From the dainty bougainvillaea plates, espresso cups and saucers of Il Pellicano to the fiery peperoncino set of Mezzatorre and the dreamy sky-blue ‘Giotto’ collection of La Posta Vecchia, each line is evocative of late-night summer dinners, simple lunches, and Mediterranean living.

5. Artful Touches

Take a vicarious vacation whenever you wish with ISSIMO Pellicano Hotels posters of Il Pellicano, Mezzatorre and La Posta Vecchia, which capture the essence of each property in a delightfully vintage style. For a guaranteed talking point at your next summer party, opt instead for ISSIMO Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano, an extraordinary cookbook filled with beautiful pictures by Juergen Teller. Known for subverting the conventions of fashion and photography, here Teller turns his camera to the complexity and originality of the dishes served at Il Pellicano Restaurant. Browsing it will be almost as good as trying the food in person.
