Steal This Look: A Laid-Back Living Room on Patmos, Greece

Greek interior designer Pallas Kalamotusis fine-tuned an abandoned renovation on an 18th-century house on the island of Patmos, Greece. Working with Athens-based Studio Pale, Pallas, head of Studio Krokalia, created a relaxed and humble living space with a natural palette, a custom sofa complete with multi-striped textiles, and terracotta lights.

Here we list sources for the styles seen in Patmos (and for more on the project, see Color and Quiet: An 1700s House in Patmos, Greece, Restored by Studio Krokalia).
