Villa Orpheus - Mykonos

As summer approaches, my Greek island lusting grows bigger. The cool whites against the vibrant blue of the Aegean sea evoke feelings of summer and relaxation, setting the tone in a most unobtrusive and inviting manner.

A beautiful white pool provides the perfect lounging area with the magnificent backdrop of the sea. The soft grey tones of the shutters reflect the ever changing tones of the ocean and sky linking the home to its environment.
  
Sun seekers with style! Beautiful stoned walls and even a chapel to confess all your summer sins!
       
An old bench reinvented to become a reading lounger is contrasted with rustic and modern accessories such as the IKEA light for that mixed up laid back feel.


The kitchen boasts terracotta tiles which are extremely cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The colour is also more forgiving in the kitchen environment and set off beautifully with wooden and basket accessories. The double white porcelain sink echoes country living rather than stark contemporary polish.


A beautiful marble topped contemporary dining suite with Saarinen tulip chairs will keep this home timeless as they are true style icons and will never date.
  
Although small, the white bathroom is functional and beautiful with its large white basin and exposed shelving for towels. The beautiful ceiling is carried through the home to bring rustic chic to an otherwise neutral backdrop. 

An extensive bench scattered with beautiful cushions is an easy way to change the mood without compromising on permanent commitments. South African artist Gabriella Raafs artwork adorns the walls above, continuing the cool calm interior.
Traditional Greek white washed interior walls create a cool and calm interior.
A romantic floating curtain surrounding the bed provides another dimension to the room without expense.
   
A true beauty that will serve happy memories for years! This beautiful home can also be rented out for those well deserved summer vacations.
