a lovely holiday home on tinos, greece


This gorgeous house belongs to Greek interior designer Marilyn Katsaris. Located on the island of Tinos (Greece), it is designed by Greek Zege architects. This vacation home is actually made up of two separate houses which have been brought together through a picturesque veranda. Respecting the architectural surroundings and capturing the day to day beauty and simplicity, the architects created this private residence as it was meant to be designed for Tinos.





All bathrooms, with exposed rock formations, have a different color selected from the natural surrounding elements such as blue and sand color.



The exterior architecture coincides with the rules and balance of the typical residential islandic forms. Pigeon whole windows, curved white forms of structure and exposed stone formations are the examples of this typical form of architecture.

outdoor spaces with an ethnic touch


Today some outdoor areas with a slightly ethnic touch. A similar look can be created by using ethnic cushions (for example ikat print, kilim or berber cushions), succulent plants, a hammock, a wooden or Moroccan table and the famous Acapulco chairs (as featured in the last image).
