Apartment Renovation

Athens, Greece. Completion. March 2019

Modern refurbishment, interior design and colour facelift for this 130 square meter  dwelling in the heart of one of Athens’s oldest, bohemian neighbourhoods  and only truly multicultural one.

The original, vintage wallpaper, sixties bathroom tiles, marble kitchen  basins and herringbone, hardwood flooring are typical elements that  adorned most buildings of this era. Though heartrenching to tear down  the wallpaper and the original bathroom tiles, these interventions were  necessary to undertake new electrical wiring and plumbing work. The  walls dividing the three main living spaces, were demolished to create  fluidity between the rooms and allow in more light.

Some of the furniture pieces left behind by the previous owner, such as the somewhat drabby,
buffet cabinet were dismantled, reworked and painted, imbuing them with new life: in this case, the yellow dresser.
