Interior design – Turkish interior designer Sami Savatli created a plush setting for a 26-year-old house located in the Anadolu Hisari district of Istanbul. “I worked on a serene color palette creating an elegant and polished aesthetic while evoking a modern and masculine feeling about the residence.” Explain the designer.

The 4-story house contains an expansive 850m2 of indoor space along with a 400m2 garden. Merging seductive brasses, darkened hardwood flooring and textured matte Italian decorative surface finishes incorporate various artisanal details and luxurious elements.
In regards to the furnishings, Savatli carefully designed custom-tailored marble and brass tables, upholsteries made from finest leathers and rich fabrics, and hand-made silk & woven carpets.
“I uniquely designed and selected lighting fixtures made of solid and perforated natural bronze, marble and hand cut glass with a mix of refined and raw finishes to diffuse and reflect light throughout the spaces.”
The artworks, produced locally in the designer’s workshop in Istanbul, provide the residence a warm expressive yet sophisticated color palette that resonates throughout every room.
