Interior Design Travel Spotlight: San Giorgio Hotel Mykonos

Mykonos is a beautiful Island located in Greece, and this weeks inspiration for our Interior Design Travel Spotlight. Outstanding beaches, sunny weather (practically year round), and cosmopolitan nightlife, make this Island one of the top tourist destinations in all of Greece.

While perusing the internet for inspiration we found this stunning boutique hotel called San Giorgio in Mykonos. This hotel immediately caught our attention with its “bohemian luxury” slogan, and the design to back it up.  The Greek lifestyle is portrayed beautifully with the iconic use of white washed wall buildings, and “a sense of history, heritage, style and simplicity”. Authenticity was an integral part of their design process. Join us as we take a mini tour of this serene Greek getaway.

Beautiful hand picked rugs, and beach wood furniture, create an authentic Greek experience.  In true bohemian spirit TV’s are left out of the bedrooms to encourage travelers to venture outside their hotel rooms.

Beautiful Buenos Aires 1970's Home Renovation

Paula Cahen d’Anver y Federico Álvarez Castillo wanted a house that had a natural flow between the interiors and exteriors.  Luckily they found this wonderful 1970’s home that did just that, and so the remodeling began.  Being owners and designers of one of Argentina’s most influential fashion brands, Etiqueta Negra, their home directly reflects their keen sense of style and impeccable taste.

What was the client’s background / story for this project ?

The client was a young working professional who just moved to Toronto from out West for work seeking a quick solution to furnish her small condo in a short time span. With all her previously purchased furniture left out West, she was starting from scratch requiring all key pieces as well as solutions to make the industrial space functional and homey.

Toronto Interior Designer, Interior Design, Home Decor, Modern Dinnette, Transitional Interior Design

What were the client’s needs/objectives?

The needs of the client were mainly to create a multi-use space in which she could live day to day in, entertain in occasionally, and also work from home when necessary.

Toronto Interior Designer, Interior Design, Home Decor, Modern Bedroom, Transitional Interior Design

What kind of challenges did you experience during this project?

As with many condos space was limited and the unit felt very generic, cold and industrial with concrete ceilings, columns and large glass windows. The main challenge was to inject personality and warmth while making the space flexible to function in different ways for the client.

Toronto Interior Designer, Interior Design, Home Decor, Modern Interior Design, Transitional Interior Design

Design Phase: Please tell me about the design phase and how different pieces were picked out.

The design phase of the project was very quick as the client had no furniture to utilize after her move. Pieces were selected that could serve dual purposes such as the fold out console/ dining table. Another deciding factor in selection was materials and textures; the objective was to bring in natural materials and elements to create a warmer and inviting living space.

Toronto Interior Designer, Interior Design, Home Decor, Modern Living Room, Transitional Interior Design

Completion Phase: What was the client feedback? Did the project meet / exceed their expectations?

The client was very pleased with how the space came together in a short time frame and on budget. Not only was she happy with the final design, but also with how the process made her transition to Toronto easier.
