This post is kind of the second side of the medal that is decorating in Istanbul. Yesterday, I shared with you a post on the more traditional aspect of interior design in this city filled with great history, art and craftsmanship. Today it is the opposite of that and yet, it is very much an aspect of what Istanbul is today: a bustling, modern and rich city.
Escape from Sofa designed this Istanbul home with some gorgeous & sophisticated finishes: marble everywhere, brass, chevron wood floors, and modern appliances. There is very little that could say that this home is in fact in this Turkish city and yet it totally is. A lot of the new generation of wealthy people choose to move away from the more traditional aspect of home interiors while still embracing the materials (such as marble) that are found in most luxurious homes, mosques and even hotels.
While here, we stayed at the Vault Karakoy House Hotel and our bedroom’s bathroom was clad in the most beautiful green marble from ceiling to floor. Same scenario at Mangerie a hip restaurant where we went for brunch, in the Bebek area along the Bosphorus, where all the farm style woond tables were covered by large spans of Carrera marble. Just like that.
