    Interior Design Laboratorium were approached to re-do a preexisting hotel, originally built in the 1980s. Intervening both inside and out, the design team reformed the hotel into 33-suites, a reception area, restaurant, pool and spa.

    The designers were influenced by the traditional houses and monasteries found on the island of Paros. With this in mind, the design firm highlighted the all-white exterior, architectural arches and arched windows, concrete columns and thick masonry of the existing. Inside, they wanted to reflect the Cycladic islands, letting visitors feel as though they are taking a step back in time.

    Parilio’s signature aesthetic is derived from a combination of modern Mediterranean and antique elements. The interiors combine work by ceramists from Morocco, Crete and Copenhagen, who’ve all paid tribute to the Koukounaries cliff, through a palette of brown, beige and faded yellow. These bespoke art pieces accompany contemporary Greek design pieces and objets d’art by leading European designers such as Vincent Van Duysen.

    The design team dressed each suite in the colours of the cliff, strengthening the hotel’s relationship with its surrounds. Privy to spectacular scenes of the pool or ocean outlook, each room welcomes a gentle breeze and ample sunlight.

    Interior Design Laboratorium further created a sense of bliss and belonging through their own custom furnishings, upholstery and Cycladic marble in the bathroom. The custom design work doesn’t stop there either, with tapestry designed exclusively by famed Marrakesh-based LRNCE for Parilio’s suites.
