Acollection of engravings contained in the travel book by James Stuart and Nicholas Revett.The Antiquities of Athens London (1762-1816) depicting the ancient Tower of the Winds has given its name to this lovely house. Its rooms have high, vaulted ceilings, an airy light blue on the walls, and timeless elegance in the authentic Santorinian period furniture: beauty, harmony, consistency of decor.
Hanging from the ceiling of the living room is a silver Venetian oil lamp adorned with cherubim. Also from Venice are the carved wooden lamps on tall stands that flank the main entrance. A Corfiot commode is surrounded by Biedermeier chairs, while drums from ancient marble columns rest comfortably next to modern furniture, functioning as side tables.
In the bedroom, where comfort is paramount, decor is provided by ceramic Tanagran dolls; three rare photographs of the Tower of the Winds can be found in the dressing room. In this environment, a piano is certainly not an accidental detail: it provides yet another means of expression, enabling the imagination to take wing.
