Italian term or phrase: calda linearità
"C’è un posto, a pochi minuti da Milano, dove convivono in sinergia l’high- tech mittle europeo, il salotto anni ’50, la razionalità e la calda linearità dello stile multietnico"

Isn't that typical ? Use of high-flown language samples "convivono in sinergia", "calda razionalità", and gross spelling mistakes like "mittle europeo"....MAMMA MIA !!!

Any ideas ?

This indeed is a terrible combination of expressions, especially if this is a description of a restaurant environment!

My suggestion is based on one of the meanings of "lineare", which is "uncomplicated". That is how I got to warm simplicity. When I looked up the combination of the 2 words, it seemed to be in wide use, so I think you can use this if you don't come across anything closer. Good Luck :)

Example sentence(s):
  • There's a nice warm simplicity to Freeman's soft but colorful pastel illustrations...
  • The spacious, naturally illuminated lobby and a collection of art and literature bring elegance and warm simplicity together...
