Interior designer Patrick Gallagher keeps an apartment in Rome's stylish Palazzo Taverna, and it is nothing short of an Italian dream come true. The October issue of House Beautiful profiles Americans' homes abroad, and Gallagher's is our favorite hands' down, so we got our hands on some exclusive photos of the fantastic apartment. Inspired by his surroundings, Gallagher's apartment sports a ceiling covered in painted gold stars (a DIY we can't wait to try!), a bedroom swathed in rich, earthy tones and textures, and a living room that has a vaulted ceiling not unlike a wine cave. La dolce vita, indeed!
