Better Than ' Old World Style' - Part ll

Lavish, and Mystical
Is this better than any attempt at 'Old Word Style' , that you have seen ?

The Designer; Zeynep Fadillioglu
She is based in Istanbul, most of the pictures are of homes she has done in Turkey.

As you go through these pictures, look at the walls and how Ms. Fadillioglu has finished the interior walls.
How is this for a master bedroom ?

A few details..........let me say, this woman knows details !

The view from the master bedroom.

I think her display style is brilliant.

I love these panels, and the hardware .
  • An elegant design solution.
One of the things that has me hooked into her style, is her gift for ' lighting application' through-out all of her work.
Villa at Buyukdere is my favorite, and these are some pictures of it. (you can find it on her site)

Her bathrooms are the stuff fairy-tales are made of.
An 'Arabian Nights' dinner party anyone ?
To me, this is incredible !! I wish I were dining there tonight.
Check out the walls. ( in addition to everything else)

This room is so sophisticated, and my idea fabulous.
Great ?

For the most part, this room is contemporary. And I still spot glorious tassels on the side panels.

I would have done the same...........but, then again, I am a recovering trim addict, so I understand completely.

This is crisper than some of her other spaces. I adore all of her design selections.
I want this bathroom !! What are your thoughts on this post ?

  1. Renee, you are so right, the details are magnificent. I love the green wall in the 3rd or 4th photo... and the headboard with the lighting on it and the cool lights hanging on each side of the bed, all of the lighting is perfection. And the bathrooms are to die for! Excellent post, so enjoyable! Thanks.
