The brand-new Pera Perou villas are situated on the mountainous, sun-baked Kefalonia, an island within the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. With its vibrant historical past stretching all the best way again to antiquity and past, Kefalonia gives a dreamy and magical backdrop for this small, secluded resort.
Athens-born proprietor and designer Kleoniki Androni has at all times been in love with Kefalonia and now that she additionally lives there herself, she knew the principle attraction at Pera Perou have to be the view.
There was no must compete with the panorama of the sapphire-hued sea unfolding from the villas’ monumental home windows and sliding doorways. That is sufficient.
Consequently, her three distant and secluded stone villas had been created from the rock on which they stand. Each actually and esthetically they’re of the island. They appear as if they’d been right here for a very long time.
She has prolonged the minimalist, earth-toned sensibility to each element within the well-equipped villas. All the things speaks the language of stability and concord with supplies that belong – tough wooden, stone, baskets, tactile textiles.
We in fact love this sort of simplicity and stability. It takes expertise to have the ability to choose every brand-new merchandise and nonetheless produce an environment of peaceable, timeless, sun-baked permanence.
A few of Androni’s most impressed options embrace the usage of understated built-in options. A lot of the beds are easy platforms; the bars and counters are built-in as a lots of the cabinets and storage options. Varied white-washed stone planes perform as seating, aspect tables or steps. A stunning monolithic white slab backs the out of doors bathe. These options create a way of age and permanence but in addition they appear fully trendy.
We additionally love the cool firepit by Dutch Pleased Cocooning, the tactile textiles by the Greek Vagenas and the completely lovely free-form dishes and ceramic artwork by Athens-based Chrisa L’iarmacopoulou.
