"Sprezzatura is an Italian word from a book written in the 1500's describing someone who can make something difficult look easy." William Safire Kate Middleton, the new Duchess of Cambridge, has eased into her new role effortlessly and with a certain element of classic nonchalance. She is the perfect example of sprezzatura, defining classic style in her dress and manner but displaying a contemporary vibe that is most appealing. How does one cultivate sprezzatura? There is such a certain easygoing form of direction and nonchalance with sprezzatura that it escapes a floor plan. It is easier to observe sprezzatura than it is to define. For instance, the condominium at Larimer Place, featured on the Home Page of this website is known for its sprezzatura. There is a uncontrived ease in the floorplan that can be adapted effortlessly for one's style or taste. The spectacular views from all the floor to ceiling windows and outdoor decks gives the location of the penthouse a certain panache. The building is understated and without the fanfare of hotels or street level retail, giving it style without cliche. This penthouse has sprezzatura! Competitively priced for the location and views, it is across the street from historic Larimer Square and within two blocks of world class opera, symphony, ballet and theatre in addition to its close proximity to the Pepsi Center for hockey, basketball and concerts or baseball at Coor's Field.
