Dimorestudio led the recent renovation of the ultimate Mediterranean luxury retreat, Villa Sheherezade. Positioned on a peaceful clifftop, overlooking the impossibly clear Adriatic at the south east end of the Dalmatian coast, Villa Sheherezade faces the picture perfect paradise Island of Lokrum, and medieval city Dubrovnik’s famous fortress walls. A masterpiece of white stone, topped with a striking turquoise dome, it is a palace in which legends have been born and epic romances played out and was originally built in 1920.
Dimorestudio has infused a distinctive character and charm to the interiors of the magnificent Moorish architecture of the Villa enhancing the sophisticated appeal and essence of the spaces, through an intervention that conveys an elegant balance between nautical and colonial touches and precious furnishings, whilst preserving the historical atmosphere of the residence.
A rich palette of blues and yellows, precious walnut woods, bamboo and silks establish a common thread between the restyled spaces, giving new life to the outstanding white stone architecture of a building considered one of Dubrovnik’s protected monuments.
