Designed by Charmes & Co
A 1950s Apartment located in a building which used to be our grandparents' residency. Radically renovated in order to provide the contemporary comforts demanded by the current way of life for its owners and guests while retaining its unique character.
The design of the apartment benefitting from the apartment's height, is focused on a unified, communal space that is directly accessible from the entry hall. Thus, the main sitting area and the dining area are laid out in open plan. In line with the entry hall, a bright white -floor to ceiling bookcase leads to the master bedroom and the bathroom.
The essence of the famous greek marble “Pentelikon” on the staircase leads to the first level, harmoniously combined with the neutral chromatic tones of other materials, completing the apartment's unique personality.
The apartment's composition of colours and furniture is radically opposed to the usual decor of Cretan residences.
The dominating dark grey fire place made of obsidian stone and the persian carpet in the sitting area are successfully combined with the marvellous floor made of mosaic.
The custom designed parquet floor offers an extra touch of warmth and luxury in the bedrooms while the full height mirror in the master bedroom reflects natural light. The dining area is enhanced by the uniqueness of the old dining table made of solid rosewood. The laundry room's roof is made of glass, designed as a source of illumination for the kitchen area and an opening to the blue sky or moon during the night.

I am an Actress, Producer and Entrepreneur in the UK, Greece and Cyprus. I come from a family of Architects, Artists and Business people. I adore Fashion and Interior Design. I love trevelling and exploring people and several cultures. Elegance is my major feature(they say) Luxury to me, in a non-materialistic sense, it means spending time with family and friends. Eating delicious food and drinking great wine all together. In a materialistic sense it means comfort & effortlessness.
A balanced whole.
I've been an Airbnb host for the past 2 years. I really enjoy hosting as I make new friends. And they are all precious!!!
I like to treat people the way I'd like to be treated.
Authenticity is what I am looking for in life.
I became an actress coz I love people. I love to observe their personalities and I always learn from each and every person I meet.
