We were approached by the client who is also a childhood friend to design a Greek villa that is pleasant to stay for a short or long term, hence homely, and aesthetically of a specific architectural style. Also, keeping costs in control was one of the major concerns for the client. Hence after discussion, Greek style homestay was finalized.
A Greek Villa That Is Pleasant To Stay For A Short Or Long Term | Design Inc
A Greek vacation homestay embodies the timeless elegance and classical aesthetic of Greek architecture and interior design. Architectural features play a pivotal role in creating an authentic atmosphere that transports guests to the heart of Greek builtform.
The exterior of a Greek-style homestay typically showcases a blend of iconic elements, including white walls, columns, and a pitched roof adorned with tiles and semi-circular doors.
The columns may surround a welcoming entrance or line the exterior to evoke the classical charm of ancient temples.
The interior design of a Greek-style homestay is characterized by simplicity, balance, and a harmonious color palette. The prevalent use of white creates a bright and airy ambiance, reminiscent of the Mediterranean sunlight.
Traditional Greek patterns, inspired by motifs found in ancient pottery and architecture, incorporated into textiles, furnishings, or decorative elements to add a touch of authenticity.
Furniture in a Greek-style homestay often features clean lines and a timeless aesthetic. Semi furnished wooden furniture, adorned with subtle carvings or geometric patterns, complements the overall design.
Soft, earthy tones such as beige, olive green, and azure blue hasbeen introduced through upholstery and textiles, creating a soothing and inviting atmosphere.
Flooring choices play a crucial role in achieving the desired Greek aesthetic. Cool, light-colored tiles and polished marble floors not only enhance the visual appeal but also provide a refreshing feel underfoot, mimicking the coolness of ancient Greek architectural materials.
The inclusion of naturalkey patterns, meander motifs, and friezes in decor elements contributes to a cohesive design that pays homage to the cultural richness of Greece.
Lighting design in a Greek-style homestay is often inspired by the play of light in the Mediterranean region.
Large windows allow natural light to flood the space, while strategically placed fixtures with warm tones emulate the gentle glow of the sunset and Aravallis. Lantern-style pendant lights and sconces have been used to echo the classical influence.
A charming 6-bedroom homestay, nestled in a serene locale, with picturesque backdrop, beckons travelers with its cozy ambiance.
This small-scale haven boasts not only the comfort of five thoughtfully designed bedrooms but also a central swimming pool, elevating the experience to a refreshing retreat.
In summary, a Greek-style homestay seamlessly blends architectural and interior design elements inspired by ancient Greece.
The careful selection of columns, color palette, furniture, and decor creates a space that not only exudes elegance but also invites guests to experience the enduring beauty of Greek aesthetics.
Whether enjoying the exterior’s grand columns or the interior’s harmonious simplicity, guests are immersed in a cultural journey that celebrates the rich heritage of Udaipur through Greek Lenses.
The pool becomes the focal point, offering a tranquil oasis for relaxation amidst the homely setting. Guests can unwind by the water, enjoying both privacy and a communal atmosphere.
This unique blend of spacious accommodation and a central pool creates an ideal balance, making the homestay an inviting haven where the pleasures of a comfortable stay meet the joys of aquatic leisure.
