Happy Monday! If you have been following the projects that I feature on Stylishly Zen for a while then you know that Barcelona based designer Katty Schiebeck is one of my favourites. Her talent for mixing rich raw materials with natural light and chic colour palettes is incredible and statement making.
Today’s feature is a residential project by Katty. Located in India, she has seamlessly blended the warmth of the environment with paired back minimalism. The result is an elegant, welcoming and memorable home.
Filled with natural light and voluminous shapes, the micro cement covered walls elegantly blends with custom furniture made with leather and marble to give this home an artistic touch.
The high ceilings, arched doorways, use of natural materials and raw colour palette meld together perfectly. This sophisticated home is the epitome of paired back upscale elegance and may be my new favourite project from this talented designer.
What do you think of this gorgeous home? Let me know in the comments below.
Thank you for stopping by Stylishly Zen today! I hope that you have a beautiful day! XXS
Today’s Vacation Dreaming feature exemplifies the care and understanding with which K-Studio designs their projects. Located in Mykonos, Greece Kalesma is built as a village rather than a typical hotel. It is meant to grow and expand over the years while still providing an intimate hospitality to its guests.
There is something about every project that K-Studio designs that hooks me. Every project that I have seen of theirs has left me swooning and dreaming of visiting the project in person and experiencing it for myself. The time and care that they take to design projects that work within its environment really comes thru, resulting in projects that seamlessly integrate within its surroundings.
Whitewashed buildings set against the rugged landscape and inky blue sea sets the communal image. Intelligently positioned for visitors to enjoy both the sunrise views to the east along with the sunsets views to the west. These views can be enjoyed from the many wellness and social areas by guests as they relax and enjoy amenities that the hotel has to offer.
The hotel has 25 suites and 2 villas. I love that the entry offers a outride shower for guests to “de-sand” before entering their private quarters. Natural tones and textures along with an abundance of natural light gives the indoor spaces an elegant and calming vibe. The colour palette also allows the stunning views to the centre stage even while indoors.
The beautiful pergola covered bar, infinity pools and cushiony sun loungers are just some of the amenities to enjoy while visiting this gorgeous hotel. The hotel even has a traditional stone “Aloni” which historically was a circular structure used for grinding wheat into flour. It has been modified to be a relaxing platform from which guests can socialize and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine.
This hotel is a dream and demonstrates perfectly K-Studios incredible design talents. It is yet another project that I am dreaming of visiting.
The first picture that I ever saw of the Brighton Homestead by Robson Rak Architects was the incredible white entryway. It quickly earned a spot in my dream design file and I often found myself staring at it wondering what the rest of the home looked like. Last week though, The Local Project featured a breathtaking home in Melbourne that I quickly fell in love with. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the entryway that had left an indelible mark on my design dreams belonged to this dream worthy home.
Architectural firm Robson and Rak were tasked with the brief of adapting a stately home into a family enclave for a family with four young boys. They respected the original features and built a complementary extension which successfully elevated the design of the entire home.
The brief included creating an amazing zone for the children and this home balances formality with a sense of play throughout the home. This included extending the underground basement garage to allow for indoor cricket matches.
The colour palette throughout the home is restrained and elegant, with pops of colour to further elevate the sense of play vibe that this home has.
The colour play of light and dark along with large windows that allow for natural light throughout the home along with exquisite carved details, combine to make a unique and dream worthy residence.
Spacious, beautiful and light filled, this home is a study in playful elegance. One that I hope to achieve in my own home.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope that you have a beautiful day! XXS
