Holiday Home located in Vittoriosa, Malta.
We pursued a contemporary design as I wanted to breath new life into the house, whilst respecting its rich history. The neutral limestone walls are like a blank canvas to the colourful fabrics and a backdrop to the statement pieces. We employed excellent local craftsmen for bespoke furniture such as the table with its curvy legs and Carrara marble top, but also for the apertures and spiral staircase.
The design is unfettered from the muted colours of considered ‘style’ but large areas of white consolidate the wild colour scheme. There are few “found pieces” such as the French Liberty bed, but most of the furniture is bespoke or altered in some way. My favourite piece is the wardrobe. It stands there like a monumental niche, waiting to display our guests’ favourite ensemble, an open pièce de résistance, unlike other wardrobes, which tend to be closed and taciturn. Of course it would be totally impractical in a home, it’s designed for short adventures.
