Summer is finally here and the only things I'm thinking are holidays, swimming, nice food near the sea and siestas on hammocks. When I saw the pictures of this hotel I realised that summer paradise exists and can be found in Mykonos. San Giorgio Hotel is a combination of the ’60s bohemian life with a down-to-earth “gypset” approach.
Former Creative Director of Design Hotels™ and design entrepreneur Michael Schickinger, together with interior designer and stylist Annabell Kutucu are the ones behind the design of this creative milieu. As they describe: What you see and feel at San Giorgio are equal measures of history, heritage, style and simplicity. The crisp splendour of the white-washed building is just as one would expect and hope to find on this Cycladic isle.
Air and light are brought inside, tempered only by fabrics, colors and furnishings which tell of an exotic place or a local story and the work of fine skilled hands. Throughout, there’s a deliberate spotlight on origin and craftsmanship where a few carefully chosen accessories give the right warmth to an otherwise open space. From the charming off-kilter design chair that shows off its raw wood parts, to the traditional Greek woven-top stools, weighty cotton matelassé quilts, and even the sinuous curves of the polished cement counters, each piece is organic in form or source and together they create a harmonious whole.
I love the whole colour palette of the decoration and I also like the fact that a lot of greek traditional details, such as the mosaic tiles, the embroidered pillows and the patchwork rugs, became part of the interiors creating a fresh and relaxing atmosphere.
I was really excited with the San Giorgio Hotel's site. It's so chic, simple and well-designed as the hotel itself. Everything's neat to the finest detail!
