“The placement of modest volumes of stone, wood and plaster makes the complex feel at home within the attractive Greek landscape. Nature-inspired light tones, palladino terrazzo floors, traditional shutters, pergolas, a garden of local species,” and a green roof, further accentuate this feeling. At the same time, there is a feeling of gentle luxury. This is achieved not only through the generosity of space throughout, but also through the detailed detailing (such as joinery), and the materials used, which include Olympus marble, travertine, bamboo and oak.”

“The interior décor embraces a calm palette of pastels and earth tones, reflecting the architectural choices. The furniture promotes a sense of calm and informal comfort, characterized by natural materials and simplicity. We achieve this through neutral-coloured textiles, sometimes interspersed with pastel green accents on the chairs to complement the furniture.” Kitchen and wallpaper in the living room. Adding to the natural ambiance, a wicker coffee table takes center stage. Bamboo and wicker lamps, along with wicker and hardwood vases, display dried flowers in a range of gorgeous colours, spanning from orange to lilac. We sometimes introduce touches of ‘old gold’ for a sophisticated flair that excites the senses. The service bathroom follows a similar theme, with wash basins in earth tones providing contrast to the pendant lamp and mirror, both featuring touches of ‘old gold’.
