In this welcoming apartment where every inch is maximized, blue and green hues—as an ode to the landscape—contrast with the red throughout. Some decorative elements such as the Frog poster by Enzo Mari on the wall and the Kartell Gnome by Philippe Starck create a surprising and joyful atmosphere filled with fantasy.
Eirini and Stefano worked on giving a sense of flow and feeling of depth through the materials and motifs. As a result, their holiday home is cozy yet fun, functional yet one of a kind. “We used to go almost every weekend,” Eirini and Stefano say. For them, this space is “a microcosm of life.”
⚒ Do It Yourself
Use multifunctional pieces of furniture to optimize a small space. Eirini and Stefano opted for a sofa bed in the tiny living area to make sure they can invite friends and family to stay with them for a weekend.
Play with different motifs and strong hues to create some depth. Geometric and floral motifs through rugs, curtains, and tiles combined with bright colors on the walls and on some furnishings help to add a sense of movement and visual dynamism to a space.
Choose one color as the common thread. In their mountain refuge, Eirini and Stefano picked red as the main theme. They used it in several ways in the different spaces to make the apartment feel cohesive.
