The perfect seascape escape – this is how I can describe this beautiful house in Greece belonging to Italian designer Paola Navone. Located on the top of the mountain, it has incredible views, large terraces and direct access to the beach. Paola took care of every detail of the decoration: khaki chairs on the terrace discreetly correspond wight the colour of the shutters, while stone floor is decorated with fake painted carpets.
An old oil jar over 2 meters high, which was found on a road in Crete, now decorates the terrace – instead of burying it in the ground, Paola has put it upside down and now it looks like a large primitive sculpture. Two outdoor beds designed by Paola are covered with white cotton bedding.
For interiors Paola has chosen monochromatic white scheme, continuing and complimenting serenity of the surrounding landscape. The spectacular bedroom with magnificent views of the Aegean Sea was furnished with large canopy bed. Flexible lamp, fixed to the base allows to illuminate inside the giant net in the evening.
The living room features large coffee table made of wrought iron and mismatched children chairs, found in Athens flea market.
Very simple U-shaped kitchen is equipped with double oven gas range and stainless steel utensils bought on Greek bazaars. High aluminium chairs and chrome pendant lamps were imported from Italy.
