A neutral colour palette. Contemporary meets midcentury with a touch of Greek history. Sleek lines, warm woods, cool stone. Pull back the curtains to reveal glass windows framing an amazing view of the Acropolis. Greek architect Minas Kosmidis' renovation may have turned the layout of this Athen's house on its head with bedrooms on the ground floor and living above but it is easy to understand why. Understated, earthy elegance.
