Harrods Interior Design
This was a special opportunity to amalgamate two iconic brands, combining Hotel Cala Di Volpe’s Sardinian Indigenous luxury with Harrods excellence. The design brief centred around creating luxury experiences that can be had in the Suite, from enjoying a glass of wine fresh from the cellar in intimate nooks to hosting candlelit dinner parties on the private rooftop. Very special but also offering all the comforts of a second home. In the design gently layered raw and refined materials come together to entice all the senses, creating a unique embodiment of elegant living.
Each design feature reinterprets ideas of comfort and grandeur; the soft curving edges of the walls combine with the atmospheric hidden lighting design, simultaneously luxurious materials, such as bronze textured glass and burnished finishes, create depth and warmth. Interior highlights include the marble herringbone flooring paired with hand cut mosaic tiling for the en-suites, a striking fluted limestone feature wall reminiscent of interior columns in Harrods, sculptural bespoke pieces, and glass artworks throughout.
The three-bedroom suite includes a vaulted wine cellar hosting a selection of desirable wines and spirits, a cigar humidor, an elegant marble cocktail bar and private rooftop complete with an infinity pool & al fresco dining area. The private roof terrace features a raised infinity swimming pool, a sunbathing deck, fitness area and an al fresco dining pergola. Designed with entertaining in mind, the terrace also includes a kitchen service area in the form of an organic Marmo di Orosei stone bar, complete with backlit onyx champagne basin. Hotel chefs are on hand to provide truly memorable dining experiences.
Embedded into the area’s cultural context, the suite features exceptional architecture detailing and bespoke interior furnishings with sweeping views of Hotel Cala Di Volpe’s renowned coastline.
Lighting design is a key feature in the suite easily overlooked but essential in the creation of a striking atmosphere. The lights in the suite are mostly invisible in order to keep the ceilings and walls unmarked. Both adding to the overall organic design and benefitting of the environments inherent natural magic. Coffer lighting, floor lighting or lighting incorporated into artworks such as bespoke glass piece adorning the walls, all work in balance to create a warm ambience.
