Living in Style: Paola Navone's house in Paros, Greece

I have always dreamed of having a house on a Greek island. I love the simplicity and serenity of the Cycladic architecture. The white colours of the houses, the deep blue of the sea, sunshine and a gentle salty sea breeze compose my perfect summer scene.

Let’s visit the Italian interior designer Paola Navone's house in Paros, Greece.
This traditional house has been decorated with the designer's own objects imported from Italy and pieces found in local markets.

The entrance of the house is fitted with handmade furniture by Paola.
If you look close enough you will see that the table stands on two big white clay vases placed upside down.

The small side tables are made by Paola for Gervasoni.
All of the rugs have been hand painted by Paola as well.

These kids’ chairs in the dining room have been bought from a flea market in Athens. The iron table is from Paola’s collection that she designed for Gervasoni.
